New Show: The Royal Family

royal family

Industtrees is proud to present Aprile Elcich’s first gallery showcase from October 16th through November 12th, 2009.

Entitled “The Royal Family”, this mixed media collage series was inspired by a pair of scrapbooks found at the St. Lawrence antique market filled with newspaper clippings of Queen Elizabeth and her family during the 1950's and 60's. Aprile's collages recreate the scrapbooks, changing the composition and adding materials to give each page a deeper meaning. All of these pieces are created on the actual scrapbook pages themselves, resulting in brittle and delicate collages which further the character and feelings of nostalgia in each piece.

A fine collection of English cheeses and drinks will be served starting at 8PM opening night (October 16th). Come out and enjoy the artwork, atmosphere and a little taste of monarchy!
