Elinor Freedman 

Elinor Freedman, an artist from north of Boston, is a recent Cape Cod washashore where she is inspired by the beauty of the landscape and creative energy of fellow artists.  While Ellie has explored a variety of mediums, she is drawn to the vibrancy and immediacy of working with pastel. Using soft pastel on sanded papers or textured boards and acrylic or watercolor underpaintings, Ellie’s pastels show a range of effects that bring her paintings to life. Her paintings may be seen at Elburne Home Decor in Dennis Village, MA and at Eastwind Gallery, Orleans, MA as well as in numerous juried exhibitions.

Ellie is a juried master artist at the Cape Cod Art Center, Barnstable, MA,  a juried artist of the National Association of Women Artists, and an associate member of the Pastel Society of America as well as a member of the Yarmouth Art Guild, Cotuit Center for the Arts, Falmouth Art Center, Arts Foundation of Cape Cod, Sandwich Arts Alliance, Arts Collaborative of Wakefield, the Connecticut Pastel Society, Pastel Society of New Hampshire and the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod for which she serves as a board member and coordinates a scholarship program for high school students who aspire to careers in the arts. Ellie also serves as a docent and co-facilitator of docent training at the Cape Cod Museum of Art.  In 2015 and 2017 she collaborated with a team of docents to curate museum exhibits. The Figure-Changes in Vision explored varied interpretation of the human form by noted Cape Cod artists who are included in the museum’s permanent collection.  Pastel: A Diversity of Styles highlighted a century of works in pastel from the museum’s permanent collection and provided historical background of the medium.
