LESVOS Gallery

Sculpture by Ellen Silberlicht
Opening May 13, 2017

Raised in Rural Northeastern PA, Ellen Silberlicht certainly looked elsewhere for inspiration and support in the arts. She attended The School for American Crafts at Rochester Institute of Technology for her BFA. Immediately after graduating Ellen moved to Israel to begin a series of life adventures. Traveling around the world has given her a stock pile of inspiring experiences, both artistic and life lessons. After 5 years of these adventures Ellen returned to her home town of Honesdale and began teaching art concentrating mainly in pottery.

Clay has always been Ellen’s go to medium and lifelong passion but her curiosity of other materials fills in where clay can not. Ellen thinks of herself as a sculptor, figuring out what medium would best fulfill her vision which leads her to working with many different materials. One medium she has always been attracted to has been felt. “I love the play of the forms and textures and the contrast of materials”, Ellen Silberlicht explains. “The color is a joy to work with, for when working in clay you don’t get to see the actual color until the end of the process.”

Recently retired from teaching art in public school, Ellen is now entrenched in her studio making her own art. Joy and humor seem to always be present in Ellen Siberlicht’s work. She finds both to be necessary in her daily living and feels it just spills into her artwork. You can view Ellen’s artwork at ellensilberlicht.com.
