Artists of Elements is the seed of an idea planted and nurtured by Lake Gaston artisan and Ellen Newbauer. A master woodworker, Ellen was inspired to create a collaborative space for artisans of all kinds, hence “the gathering space” in the logo.
“I hope to engage and dialogue with people. The elements of art are basic, and we all learn them in school as children: Line, shape, form, color. As an artist and artisans, we mix the principals of form, design, space and ultimately create a moving point to communicate thoughts using a common language.”
