Press release

Elizabeth Steele is an artist who has lived and worked in the New Haven area for the last 25 years. She studied at the Cleveland Institute of Art before moving to Connecticut to finish her BFA at Southern Connecticut State University, and then spent many years on the faculty of both the Guilford Art Center and Creative Arts Workshop. She has also worked extensively with Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects to develop colors and faux finishes for architectural models. She is now employed at the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History in the Education Department.

This show of monotypes, done in the last year, represent an ongoing interest in using subtle color to create semi-abstract landscapes, as well as some pieces inspired by the fossil collection at the Peabody Museum.

There will be an opening reception for Recent Monotypes this evening, Dec. 16, from 5:30—7 p.m.
