The Alliance Francaise of Greater Phoenix is pleased to introduce you to Elaine Phelps.

The Opening of the exhibit will will be held at the Alliance Française, on  Friday, May 11, from 6-8pm. Elaine Phelps will be here to welcome you. Cheese and wine reception to follow.

Elaine has been involved in the arts all her life. She began as a dancer. Her love of literature led her to the study and the writing of poetry.

After a B.A. in French and another in Spanish she pursued her master’s degree in humanities. When she isn’t working in her art studio she is searching for unusual materials or traveling the world in search of inspiration.

The Lascaux caves in France and the souks and medinas of Morocco provided the inspiration for the exhibition here at the
Alliance Française.

The figure represents for a Elaine a feeling
of spirit made manifest, the goddess and god in us all. The spirit of the animals on the walls of the caves of Lascaux, even across the millennia, speak with great power and feeling. They needed to leave Lascaux and
live among us.

 

"I was the shadow of the waxwing slain by the false azure in the window pane."

Vladimir Nabokov
