Pia Pack invited me to share what I listen to in the studio, so I created a playlist of ten songs as a love letter to my paintings. All ten songs employ the use of color to articulate emotion.

The Art of People Watching by Rosie Footitt
"I consider these pieces to be psychologically curative. Life can be challenging and we might not have the time and resources to play. I often draw from events or people who reflect dynamic and miraculous situations."
SOLO EXHIBITION EASTERN STAR GALLERY
October 24 — November 17
On Tuesday, October 24, the Eastern Star Gallery, Archer's student-run art gallery, will host artist Elizabeth Huey for the opening of her painting, collage, and sculpture exhibit, The Source. This is the gallery's first show of the year and will be open to the public from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. During the evening, the artist will be giving a short talk about her process.
About The Source
An avid collector of photographs (found prints and her own snapshots), artist Elizabeth Huey uses her archive as source material to delve into the complexities of her subjects. Her work is a reflection on a broad spectrum of quandaries surrounding humanity and healing. It is much more than a singular depiction of one being; it is comprised of complex lived truths, affected by landscape, architecture, circumstantial histories and interpersonal relationships. A painting that shares the exhibition’s title, is inspired by the story of Father Yod, the founder of the Source Family, a controversial cult attracting runaway women, and supported by the earnings of the L.A. health food restaurant, The Source. For this exhibition, Huey has created work that examines the role of widowed women in Archer’s Freemason history, and the Maypole (a symbol of fertility), highlighting her interest in the acknowledgement of unknown histories and the accomplishments of women.

AND YET IT MOVES
SOLO EXHIBITION HARPER'S BOOKS
May 27 — June 22
Opening Reception: Saturday, May 27, 6-8pm
Opening on May 27, 2017, Harper’s Books is pleased to announce And Yet It Moves, a new suite of paintings by Los Angeles based artist Elizabeth Huey. A reception attended by the artist will be held from 6-8pm. The show will remain on view through June 22.
In her second solo exhibition with the gallery, Huey continues to reflect on a broad spectrum of quandaries surrounding humanity, focusing specifically on key historical figures and monumental events. For Huey, portraiture is much more than a singular depiction of one being; it is comprised of complex lived truths affected by landscape, architecture, circumstantial histories and interpersonal relationships. Born from a substratum of abstract expressive paint, the figural elements of Huey’s work hail from a multiplicity of styles and eras.
In a description of her work she states, “Painting is a conversation where there are always more questions than answers”. Night is Deaf and the Morning Remembers envisions Alexander Graham Bell amidst a fractured Victorian home flanked by several colorful tetrahedrons and a spectral figure joyfully strumming a guitar. What role did Bell’s deaf mother play in the invention of the telephone? In Something More, Ernest Just rests prominently in a hotel lobby encircled by a cast of indifferent characters against a backdrop of snow-capped mountains. Did Just’s fight for equality influence his discovery of the ectoplasm? In The Howl, Hedy Lamarr wails in angst and empowerment shadowed by a clique of male executives. Was society’s emphasis of her starlet stature over her scientific mind a fueling factor in her founding of cellular communication?
Panoramic in its intricacies, each painting reflects a Proustian moment of malleable time—past, present and future, melding interior and exterior universes. This duality is prominently evidenced in Windows (Arpanet) where the bubbling atmosphere and palm trees nestle against the structural depiction of technology. A nod to multiple windows: the view outside, the computer screen and the painting itself, Huey candidly explores the four quadrants of Johari’s window. Elizabeth Huey's degree in psychology and her continual research and participation in its field, help to illuminate this interplay of trauma and the miraculous.
An avid collector of photographs (found prints, googled source images and her own snapshots), Huey uses her archive to delve into the complexities of her subjects. After Galileo was arrested for heresy, he scribbled 'And Yet It Moves' on his cell wall, and so it does, and even in our less conscious moments, so do we. Elizabeth Huey reveals the totemic power of imagery. Immersion in these scenic allegories conjures a renewed sense of optimism—a stalwart suggestion that there might be something more in all of us.
Before earning an MFA from Yale University (2002), Huey obtained a BA in Psychology from George Washington University (1993) and studied painting at both the Marchutz School in Aix-en-Provence, France and the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture in Manhattan. She was awarded the Terra Foundation Fellowship and Residency (2001) in Giverny, France, the Johns Hopkins University Artist Travel Fellowship (2006) to Bologna, Italy, and the Artist Research Fellowship from the Smithsonian Institution (2008) in Washington D.C. Most recently, she completed the Alma B.C. Schapiro Artist Residency at Yaddo (2014) in Saratoga Springs, NY, and the Soho House Artist Residency (2016) in Miami, Florida. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally.

Landscape Art that Depicts More Than Nature by Daniel Gerwin in HYPERALLERGIC on April 5, 2017
"Soon Means Soon (Eames) (2017), eight feet wide and nearly as tall, showcasing Huey as a terrific colorist. A dreamlike scene is framed by two buildings, one at the left edge and one at the right. The left building is decidedly pre-modern architecture, with similar houses off in the distance behind. The right-hand structure is mostly glass, following the Eames approach of simplicity and integration with nature, while inside are some figures and a very primitive computer. The buildings embody two opposing philosophies of our relationship to the world: dominance versus coexistence."

GROUP EXHIBITION: CES GALLERY
Opening reception: March 18, 2017, 7-9pm
March 18 - April 16, 2017
"The mind is a landscape and psychonauts are sailors of the soul. We surf the wave of the transpersonal human condition. We crave a scientistic spirituality. We disassociate to dissect ourselves. With insight and intuition, we observe. The artists in Psychonautics create landscapes as a means to realize psychological space, deconstructing politicized environments and terrains."
