Elinor Freedman, a long time Wakefield resident and Cape Cod washashore, is inspired by the beauty of the landscape and creative energy of fellow artists. Recent retirement from a long career as a school administrator and teacher has enabled her to devote dedicated time to creative pursuits. While Ellie has explored a variety of mediums, she is drawn to the vibrancy and immediacy of working with pastels, to which she has focused her current work. She is excited to have the opportunity to exhibit her work in juried exhibits on Cape Cod and in the Boston area. Her work is displayed in the Shop at the Cape Cod Museum of Art in Dennis, The Artists’ Paintbox Gallery in South Yarmouth, and Eastwind Gallery in Orleans.
Ellie is a juried member of the Cape Cod Art Association as well as a member of the Arts Collaborative of Wakefield, the Yarmouth Art Guild, 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 a career in the arts. Ellie also volunteers at the Cape Cod Museum of Art as a docent.
