Artist Residencies and Curated Studio Show


Elizabeth Greisman returned to Ireland for two Artist Residencies in July/August 2010
The Tyrone Guthrie Centre, Co. Monaghan and the Cill Rialaig Project in Co. Kerry, Ireland
Elizabeth spent July with old and new friends at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre.
She concentrated on her dance figures, images from Dance Canada and the landscape of Ireland. Elizabeth spent some time drawing the Coisceim dancers in Dublin and then began to develop her portrait series. The portrait series of other artists was a concept developed at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre. Elizabeth asked an artist to give her an hour and a half to sit for their portrait. She worked in acrylics for the portraits.
Elizabeth does two pictures of her subject and gives one to the sitter and keeps one for her series.
Elizabeth curated a show in her Studio at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre.  The show was open for informal visits during her stay and also during the Open Studio. Poets, writers, performance artists and visual artists were asked to contribute one photo of their work or one article or poem.
