    Black River Gallery will be hosting a meet and greet with Elisabeth Ladwig on Saturday, Aug. 14 from 2-4 p.m.
    Elisabeth is an award-winning photographic artist. She offers viewers a variety of metaphors for the miracles all around us, and for humankind’s relationship with the Earth and with the cosmos. Her work is very whimsical and mystical!  Several pieces will be on exhibit.
    Her work explores modern surrealism with the convergence of photography, graphic design, and collage art. Fueling Elisabeth’s creations is a grade-school revelation connecting science, nature, and magic: the idea that all of life’s mysteries fall within the parameters of scientific explanation, that science abides by the Laws of Nature, and that all of it is magical.

    Once an idea is born in her sketchbook, Elisabeth sets out to take the photographs she needs to create the image. Her process is variable and spiritually instinctive; often, an image is well on its way or even completed before its concept is fully understood, and that meaning may vary from one viewing to the next. All of her scenes have a strong natural connection, set completely or partially outdoors, often with an anonymous subject.

    Upon finishing her studies in Graphic and Digital Design at Parsons School of Design in New York City, her artistic career began in the music industry where she designed for the likes of Liza Minnelli, Barry Manilow, and Patrick Stewart, as well as for Broadway productions and major motion pictures. Her current work has appeared in venues from Scottsdale to Rome, on magazine covers, and on digital displays in Times Square and at the Louvre.
