Ben Elliott

I see all of my work as fragments of a familiar story unfolding through time and cycles of life. Each piece is a personal narrative that may come from a memory, the present or future projections in my life. I often use archetypal imagery as a common thread to pull others into a story. My intent is to evoke a thought or memory for a viewer using minimal information, as if one were to open a book to a random page and read a few sentences. This act could shape a certain feeling, but the rest of the story could only be assumed.


The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design launches “Craft City”

The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design (CCCD) debuts a new program series this summer that honors Asheville as “Craft City.” At three outdoor pop-up studios this summer (July 7, August 4, and September 1) people of all skill levels and backgrounds can make a take-home craft under the guidance of a visiting artist.
