"TH/ink": Quill Pen & Ink Exhibit at Bridge Gallery

"Sigmund I"

"Wheelie Monster"

"TH/ink", a delightful and thought-provoking exhibit of Quill Pen and Ink drawings by Bridge Gallery Artist Elaine Asplind Russell, promises to engage and trigger the viewer’s imagination.

Drawing with Quill Dip Pen and Ink is a delicate and time consuming process. Each piece takes considerable time to complete due to the creative energy and intricate artistry required. Russell does not typically sketch the image prior to execution, rather she creates each work as she is inspired.

A resident of Groveland, Russell is a recipient of Newburyport Art Association’s Sam Sargent Award for Drawing, and the Haverhill Arts Association Best of Other Media Award. She has been published in "Dark Horse Literary Magazine", and she has exhibited her original drawings throughout New England. The Artist is an exhibiting member of Newburyport Art Association and Greater Haverhill Art Association, and is represented by Bridge Gallery in Newburyport and Angles and Art in Haverhill.

"TH/ink" will be on exhibit from August 31st throughout the month of September. The public is invited to an Artist Reception on Saturday, September 10th, 2011 from 6 to 9pm with entertainment provided by Classical Guitarist Stephen Hochbrunn. Artist Demonstrations will take place every Wednesday in September.
