NEW LONDON, CT.- The Lyman Allyn Art Museum currently has on view a special exhibition that explores the recent work of contemporary artist Elizabeth Enders (American, born 1939). In vibrant paintings and watercolors, Enders depicts abstracted landscapes, inviting viewers on a wide-ranging journey. Inspired by experiential knowledge and by places and events of the past and present, Enders renders volcanoes, rivers, oceans, deserts, fields, plants, and tropical foliage, along with unusual monuments and structures found in places such as Egypt and Iceland. Such pieces consider how place is connected to meaning and narrative.

“Enders’ thoughtful visual commentary is subtle, penetrating, and often witty and whimsical,” said Museum Director Sam Quigley. “She still exalts the distilled beauty of places and everyday objects with seemingly effortless and spare lines. We’re very pleased to present this new work at the Lyman Allyn, and to contextualize it with earlier examples of Enders’ art as we join her on a journey to discover different times and different places.”

Some of the art on view was created during the COVID pandemic, as Enders channeled her creativity in a time of isolation and stasis. Traveling vicariously, she painted places remembered and imagined, infusing her work with bold color and energy. With this exhibition, Elizabeth Enders inhabits a realm of exploration, reflecting on our shared past, present, and future.

Born and raised in New London, Connecticut, Enders holds a BA from Connecticut College and an MA from New York University. She divides her time between Connecticut and New York City, where her work is represented by the Betty Cuningham Gallery. Enders’ art is held in numerous museums and private collections, and she has exhibited in a variety of institutions and galleries since the 1960s. Recent solo exhibitions include the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in Halifax, the Addison Gallery of American Art in Andover, MA, and a dual exhibition held at the Lyman Allyn and at Real Art Ways in Hartford, Connecticut in 2015.
