Editor’s Note: The following announcement comes from the . The Elusive Americans runs from Sept. 20 to Oct. 20, with a public opening reception from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sept. 22.
This show explores, from the artist’s perspective, the heroic and passionate figures who inhabit the margins of American culture — The Elusive Americans. Mostly self-taught, Tina Blondell’s early exposure to and study of the visual arts took place in the great museums of Europe, she having lived as a child in Austria, France and Italy. Her life as a polyglot has revealed the inherent limits of written and spoken language as tools for expressing the human condition. Accordingly, she has dedicated her life and career to mastering a more universal form of communication — the visual imagery of painting. Ms. Blondell’s work is included in the collections of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and Weisman Art Museum.
