Carol Elkovich Artists Talk Feb 28

Our new resident artist has just arrived, Carol Elkovich! Tomorrow Feb 28th at 6pm Carol will have an artist’s talk to introduce herself and share a glimpse into her interdisciplinary artwork and background.  This will be a great opportunity to get to know her as she begins her month with us. The event is free and open to the public, also simultaneously live-streaming on the Siena Art Institute’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.  

Working in the San Francisco Bay Area for over twenty-five years, Carol Elkovich navigates the terrain between imagination and concrete experiences of place. Her work explores installation, sculpture, and painting —often blurring the boundaries of those dimensions. Her paintings and installations are exhibited nationally and internationally. Recent residencies and exhibitions in galleries and museums include Los Angeles, New York, South Korea, Ireland, and France.

As an art educator, she is committed to shaping minds toward a creative future and she is an Associate Professor and Chair of the First Year Program at California College of the Arts, in San Francisco, CA.
