Elizabeth Pols ’75 Sees Beauty in Mystery

Time: 1:34

Artist Elizabeth Pols ’75 talks about her new exhibit, “At Water’s Edge,” which is now showing at the Alumnae House Gallery. Pols paints real and invented landscapes inspired by her native state of Maine and her formative years in Italy. Working with the techniques of classical Renaissance painting, she uses light, color and atmosphere to enhance reality with a touch of mystery. Recent sculptural pieces are housed in antique traveling desks and incorporate narrative panel paintings with found and altered objects, and, says the artist, are “part Renaissance devotional, part Joseph Cornell.” The exhibit runs through September 26, 2013.
