presents:

The Works of Tom Ellis
A retrospective exhibition

Opening Reception: January 16, 2010 from 5:00 – 8:00 PM.
Light refreshments will be served.
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence will be on hand as honored guests.

Thomas Ellis is perhaps best known for his eclecticism, but with this show he will be including some of his male and female figurative images never before seen by the public.

Ellis’ styles span a range of classical realism, impressionistic, abstract, and post modernism. Successful at portraiture, landscapes, figurative, and abstraction, he likes to experiment to the extreme. Working mostly in oils, he has also mastered acrylics, pastels, graphite and charcoal drawings, watercolors, photography, and anything else he can get his hands on. Always the perfectionist, he worked on the painting, The Letter, for 14 years. Some paintings in the exhibition took years, others were finished in minutes.

Refusing to have his art pigeon-holed, “I hope the audience will leave their preconceptions at the door,” says Ellis.

The ONE Archives Gallery and Museum is the exhibitionist sibling of the ONE National Gay and Lesbian Archives, located in the heart of West Hollywood. It showcases LGBT artists and queer culture exhibits from ONE’s vast archives.

MONEY
“…I named what I thought was an enormous sum. Without blinking an eye, he gathered up my life work and handed me the amount I asked for: $70… I didn’t expect more. Remember that homosexuality was forbidden in most of the Western world; so all those businesses were illegal, black market. I knew that they wouldn’t have paid me more anyway — or so I believed then.”
