    Artist Talk: Elaine Smollin, Dawn at Acheron at Hanover Theatre

    "Dawn at Acheron" is a cycle of works that reflect on the fate of the individual in history. Large-scale paintings of heroic figures reflect on our efforts to reconcile history with reality. Charcoal drawings, all made on site, create intimate environments of tone and shading.

Born in Worcester in 1953, she began her forty-year career in New York City, with a BFA and MFA studies at Pratt Institute, and graduate work in Film and Politics at NYU.
