“Rio with Chamisa”
Winter Invitational Exhibition at the Taos' Fechin Museum thru March 4, 2019
“As for the rougher stuff, aesthetically speaking, Kathleen Elsey’s painting exerts a bold, almost post-Fauvist-meets-funk touch. “Sunlit Room,” for one, flirts with burly Van Gogh effects, with a vivified palette and brusque brushwork. It’s the mightiest and most memorable piece in the room, says this unavoidably subjective observer.” Josef Woodard, Santa Barbara News Press

“Elsey’s paintings are marked by rich colors and dramatic brush strokes that recall Fauvist traditions.”Daedalus Howell,
San Francisco Chronicle
“Color is magical and fascinates me. White is distracting and terrifies me. I paint to share a vision, a feeling, and to make something meaningful."
