Delamar West Hartford and New Britain Museum of American Art (NBMAA) celebrate local artists who contribute invaluably to the creative ecosystem of Connecticut and beyond. This special exhibition at the hotel called, Elizabeth Gourlay: Color, Chords, and Threads, features over a decade of work by the artist.
Spanning the first and second floors of the hotel, Gourlay’s abstract and optically dazzling paintings and works on paper will delight the eye and mind. This exhibition follows on the heels of Gourlay’s recent solo exhibition at the NBMAA entitled Eclectic Threads. “We are very excited to be sharing Elizabeth Gourlay’s work with our visitors at Delamar West Hartford,” states Charles Mallory, founder of Delamar Hotels. “Art is an integral part of Delamar Hotel’s DNA.
We look forward to continue collaborating with New Britain Museum of American Art to showcase local artists and support their work.”
“The work in this exhibition spans from 2012 to 2023 and demonstrates my continued fascination with geometric form, rhythm, and color,” states Elizabeth Gourlay. “My work aims to resonate with viewers, stimulating interpretation and reflection. Each piece is not merely a visual presentation, but a silent dialogue between the observer and the medium, which gains meaning though shared sensibilities with music and architecture.”
This exhibition will be available for guests and the local community to view at Delamar West Hartford beginning Monday, August 7th. To learn more about Delamar West Hartford, please visit us here!
