‘Opening Up To New Perspectives’, is the title of a stone sculpture by resident sculptor, J. Ellen Austin and is a feature of this month’s exhibit.

As an artist, J. Ellen appreciates that Art has the potential to provoke and challenge a viewer’s perspectives and ways of looking at the world. Italian translucent alabaster is a distinctive choice for an artist to open up and allow light to naturally shine through the stone. This particular stone inspired her to create a symbol of harmony and hope.

She asserts that, “‘Opening Up To New Perspectives’ is something I have tried to do throughout my life, and I hope other artists and art appreciators might consider doing themselves.” She desired to create a sculpture that would encourage dialogue. Art that encourages people to open up their perspectives and ways of viewing the world.
