The “Solo Art Series” is a series of monthly solo art exhibitions for established artists who have a body of work to present to the public.  Artist participants were asked to submit the following 3 components for the “Solo Art Series” competition: 1. Their art.  2. Their artist biography.  3.  Their artist statement.  These elements were evaluated and judged, which resulted in the selection of the artists who are featured in individual month-long solo art exhibitions. 

Below are Elaine’s Artist Biography, her Artist Statement, along with 20 of her sculptures. We hope that you will take the time to read Elaine’s information and to take a look at her art.

Artist Biography

Elaine Franz Witten majored in art at Connecticut College, New London, Connecticut and studied sculpture at Columbia University. Her work is inspired by living close to nature in Vermont. With a Registered Nurse background, her anatomical knowledge informs her figurative work.

Elaine’s art has been exhibited in over one hundred fifty National and International exhibitions as well as museums and regional solo shows. Her bronzes are in public and private collections in U.S., Canada and in the private collection of the former King of Saudi Arabia. Ms. Witten created an outdoor lion head fountain for the Village of Old Bennington, Vermont, as well as a dove fountain for St Mary’s Medical Foundation, Langhorn, Pennsylvania. Several of her sculptures are in the permanent collection of Dorset Public Library, Dorset, Vermont, and in corporate collections in Vermont and Alaska. In 2013, she became a purveyor of sculpture to the U.S. State Department for use as Presidential gifts by President Obama.

In New York City, her sculptures have been exhibited at Park Avenue Gallery as part of several National Sculpture Society exhibitions, the National Arts Club, Salmagundi Art Club and Sylvia and Po Kim Gallery. Ms. Witten is an elected member of the National Society of Women Artists.

Elaine has taught sculpture for twenty years at Southern Vermont Arts Center, Manchester, Vermont. She is a past Trustee of Vermont College of Fine Arts, Montpelier, Vermont. She is represented by galleries in Vermont, New York, Florida and Maine.

Artist Statement

Beautiful form, creative use of negative space and illusion of movement are hallmarks of my bronze sculptures. Working in contemporary realism and with timeless subject matter, I frequently simplify shapes and sometimes idealize form to achieve my artistic intent. My goal is to interpret beauty for myself and all who view my creation, as I strive to communicate through sculpture the essence, even the soul, of living forms.

My body of work includes figurative, animal, birds and “antique” musical instruments, which I frequently mount on indigenous stone bases. I cast my bronzes using the multi-step ancient lost wax method, which begins with constructing the original in clay over an armature, progressing to wax, and ultimately casting into bronze. Molds are made between each stage.

My roots of inspiration are my lifelong love of nature, art and music. I live close to nature in rural Vermont providing exposure to such living subject matter as horses, llamas, goats, moose, birds, deer, fox, and turkeys. I draw upon my accrued knowledge of human anatomy gained as a R.N. to enhance my figurative work. I was raised in a family that both valued art and played classical music. Thus, I speak from my inner voice, reflecting my past and communicating through sculpture, our human connectedness with all living creatures.
