Check Out Carolyn Ellingson’s Art Through May

Posted May 1st, 2013 by Erin Steiner  Category: Arts & Entertainment


Are you a fan of abstract art? Do you enjoy brilliant colors and clean lines? Are you familiar with and a fan of the art produced during the last quarter of the twentieth century and the first decade of the new millennium? If you answered yes, you’re going to want to check out “Socko! The Thrill of Art!” at the Inside Angles Custom Framing Gallery.

The show started on April 12 and runs through May 18. The show features the paintings (and some prints) of Carolyn Ellingson.

Carolyn Ellingson

Carolyn Ellingson is an abstract artist known best for the work she produced after moving to San Francisco in the early 1980s. She had a studio at Hunter’s Point Shipyard. In her early career, she tried out a wide variety of different types of art, from macramé to neon to jewelry making. Her later work focused almost completely on paintings: oil, watercolor, monotypes and acrylics. She also did some pastels. Like many modern and contemporary artists, she was known for an obsession with color, and many of her pieces focused on just one color at a time.

In 2002, Carolyn passed away because of mesothelioma.

The show features more than forty different works produced by Carolyn throughout her career. These pieces are also available for sale.

Inside Angles

Inside Angles is owned by Sue Runkle (who took over after the previous owner retired) and is run with the help of her apprentice framer, Amber Wilke. The shop has recently relocated and is thriving in its new location.
The Inside Angles Custom Framing Gallery displays art, sells traditional frames, and also takes on custom framing commissions for everything from prints to three-dimensional objects.

The gallery and shop are located at 6831 Angola Road in Holland, Ohio. The shop is opens at 10:00 AM every Tuesday through Saturday. Most nights it is open until 6:00, but on Wednesdays the hours are extended until 7:00, and on Saturday the shop closes at 4:00.

Make sure that you plan plenty of time to look through the exhibit and the shop. With more than forty works to see by Carolyn as well as the other work that the shop’s local artists display, there is a lot to see!

For more information about this event, contact Sue directly by phone or email (that information can be found here).
