Gallery welcomes youngest solo exhibiting artist
Submitted By Sun Gallery
The Sun Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibit by its youngest solo exhibiting artist in the gallery's 42 years ? Ellery Liu, age 8.
A second grader at Ardenwood Elementary School in Fremont, Ellery started taking drawing lessons at age four and found that she loved it. She studies art and painting with Miss Emma Peng at Green Forest Art Studio in Union City, where she has attended classes for four years.
Sun Gallery's Director Dorsi Diaz was pleased to highlight Ellery's work, some of which she had the pleasure of working with Ellery on during her time as a fine arts teacher with Green Forest.
Displayed in the Ken Cook Room, Ellery's body of work contains a wide variety of mediums, which is rare for a child to have tackled at such a young age. She has pieces created in pen, pencil, ink, watercolor, acrylic paint, mixed media, oil pastel, soft pastel, charcoal, and colored pencil. Ellery demonstrates a wide range of skill and creativity in her 50 displayed pieces, ranging from nature scenes to whimsical animals and still life paintings.
Ellery lives in Fremont with her mom Nan, dad Wei, big brother Alex, and their dog Biscuit. While she loves doing all types of drawings and art projects, Ellery also enjoys sewing, knitting, singing, dancing, gymnastics, studying, reading, and traveling with her family. She has not decided what to do when she grows up, but singer and YouTuber are among the options.
Ellery's exhibit runs through Wednesday, February 28, in tandem with Sun Gallery's 29th annual ?Children's Book Illustrator Show,? which is in the main gallery. Stop by and see these two great exhibits!
