ELLEN DANCING: THE WORK OF SANDY WALKER
Ellen Dancing, showcases original works by Bay Area painter and printmaker, Sandy Walker. This beautifully powerful show focuses on the work Walker has created in celebration of his wife, dancer and choreographer Ellen Webb, including drawings done directly of Ellen dancing and representations that Walker has made over the years in film, photography, printmaking and oil painting. At its essence, this exhibit is a visual love letter in paint, ink and film.
Ellen Webb was a major presence in the Bay Area Dance scene for many years. The Ellen Webb Dance Company performed in major venues in the Bay Area as well around the United States and Europe. She received significant critical notice, reviews and awards. She was also the founding director of the Talking Dance Project. Sandy Walker has had many one person exhibitions in private galleries and museums in the United States and his work is represented in major public collections including MoMA (NYC), The Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Smithsonian Museum of American Art. Most recently he had two solo shows at the SHOH Gallery in Berkeley as well as two at the Elizabeth Harris Gallery in NYC.
Together Webb and Walker received an Isadora Duncan Dance Award in 1989 for their collaboration on Mountain, Tree, and Water, and have since collaborated on many major dance productions.
