Into The Infinite: The Art of Richard C. Elliott
Yakima Valley Museum
Exhibition invitation notes
This special exhibition, which will fill the Sunquist and Gilbert Family Galleries, traces the development of Richard C. Elliott’s unique and personal body of work. Not a “retrospective” in the usual sense, this exhibit strives to interpret the artist’s inspiration and process. It begins with Elliott’s 1999 treatise “An Ininite Point in Time”, which described the artist’s approach to life art and perception. Video stories, items from Elliott’s studio, and lesser known “experimental works” offer glimpses into his life and creative process. Selections of Elliott’s well-known reflector paintings and neon work (in a darkened gallery), as well as his “Primal Op” paintings and “Vibrational Field” prints, will also be displayed. Another section of the exhibit will focus on Elliott’s many public art commissions. If you are familiar with Elliott’s art you are sure to see much that is new and different. If you are not familiar with Elliott’s art, prepare to be amazed.
