The Ney celebrates a ‘creative nomad’
Tuesday, October 26, 2021 by Tai Moses
A new exhibit opening this Thursday from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Elisabet Ney Museum is a tribute to the many talents of Texas artist Marie Elena Ely. “Ongoings” is a collection of photography, collage, painting and prints that “evoke the spirit of the modern American West from Texas Hill Country to the City of Angels and back.” Ney curator Lindsay Barras said, “I’m thrilled for the museum to showcase Marie’s recent work, part of a continuum in her prolific and boundless creation. Her photos and nostalgia meet naturally on paper to create romantic and abstract collage paintings I am certain visitors will enjoy.” Ely, who is described as “somewhat of a creative nomad and free spirit, not unlike Elisabet Ney herself,” also directs music videos and does production design. Noon-5 p.m., Wednesday-Sunday, Elisabet Ney Museum, 304 E. 44th St. The exhibition closes Jan. 9.
