Paintings Of The Land And The People

“People and the Land” is an exhibit of 30 paintings by Elsa Bekkala that will run through November 29 at the Janice Mason Art Museum in Cadiz. Bekkala grew up on a dairy farm in Michigan and has worked around the world, most recently in New York City, before moving to Lafayette three years ago. The exhibit features mostly paintings done in Kentucky but includes some from New York to show how her work has changed. “I gave myself complete freedom when I came to Kentucky,” she says. “I’m using different coloration, less use of black, more greens and yellows of the land and the people and the soil…it’s very beautiful here.”
