Double Exposure SA, is a culmination of paintings, drawings and photographs by Elise Johnson and Tracey Abel. They capture the culturally rich vibe of San Antonio and surrounding South Texas area.
Elise Johnson –“ I am admittedly a messy oil painter! I am obsessed with landscapes, portraits and abstract subjects that capture a memory or place in time. I use exaggerated colors, giving them a somewhat whimsical feel. “
Elise has over twenty years’ experience as an art educator, where she currently teaches advanced art classes at Taft High School. Many of her students have won regional and state competitions. She is a member of Texas Art Education Association and Texas Visual Arts Association. She volunteers as a presenter for student and teacher workshops throughout the state. Her work has been exhibited in several juried art shows in North Texas. Most of her works are in private collections and businesses. Elise is a native of Corsicana, Texas.
Tracey Abel- " After recently moving to San Antonio, I have become re-energized artistically by all this city has to offer. I love the architecture here and looking for the extraordinary in ordinary objects."
Tracey creates works in photography, acrylic, pastel and watercolor. She has had gallery shows in North Texas and was a juror for the Lubbock Art Alliance and the Western Artist of America. She is an Art educator with 25 years’ experience and is a member of the Texas Art Educators Association and the National Art Educators Association. She devotes much of her time to helping her students become excited about the world of art and has worked with non-profit organizations to bring art to as many children as possible. Tracey is originally from Dallas, Texas.
