Calligraphic Paintings by Eleanor Winters

The Anne Frank Center USA, 44 Park Place, New York City 10007
Opening Reception: Wednesday, April 9 from 6 to 8pm
Longtime SoS member and instructor Eleanor Winters is a calligraphic artist who divides her time between Paris and New York. After reading and reacting to the hundreds of commemorative plaques around Paris, she began to work on a series of calligraphic paintings, using the texts from the A la Mémoire plaques as the inspiration for and the content of the paintings. Her purpose has been to express the gravity and emotional impact of the texts through calligraphy, color and texture.
