Christa Faut Gallery in Cornelius, NC, Features Works by Elizabeth Bradford Millsaps

The Christa Faut Gallery in Cornelius, NC, will present an exhibition entitled, Water, Earth, Sky, featuring paintings by Elizabeth Bradford Millsaps, on view from Sept. 6 through Oct. 9, 2002.

Millsaps lives in Davidson, NC, in her great grandfather's farmhouse, which has been in her family since 1890. She finds it the perfect setting for the exploration of her southern roots. For many years, she has painted the shift in her community from farming to suburban life, visiting with farmers and studying the traditions of her community.

Millsaps' work, as a whole, focuses on intricate formal patterns found in nature and on the experience of color, and ranges from small to intimate to large scale. Her medium is acrylic on canvas. Though representational in nature, Millsaps' paintings have a strong connection to the traditions of abstractions, and show, as well, the influence of pattern and decoration often found in pop art.

Millsaps studied art at the University of North Carolina and Davidson College. Her work has been collected in many corporate, as well as, private collections throughout the US. She was recently included, for the second time, in the Art In Embassies program, a project to place work by American artists in embassies around the world. Millsaps has held many solo exhibitions, including shows at UNC-C and Davidson College, as well as six previous exhibitions at the Christa Faut Gallery.
