Gallery Ehva
daring and beautiful art

. . . . . . .

Dear Friends,

Sorry, we're closed now.

I could not keep gallery open for more then one reason, but the biggest one was me. I did not feel I was strong (and smart) to contine. I needed rest: do nothing time, be closer to Earth, Sea, Sun, Sky, my cat Bikini and my dog Hana.

Do I miss it? Yes! I miss our dinners, painting Easter eggs, my freedom to do with our space whatever I wanted to do, I miss people, soup and bread openings... I miss our little "community".

Do I miss ART? Not now. I am fine having my hands dirty, working in my garden.

What I do now? Hmmm, little art, lots of cooking...

Who I am now? Rebel, definitely!

So, be well my friends and thank you for letting me love you. I know we'll see each other, sonner or later.

-- Yours, always, Ewa

These photographs are part of a project on emigration, funded in part by the Commission of the European Communities in 1993-1994. 

Ten invited artists from Ireland, France and Spain participated in this project, a six-week journey through places in those countries where emigration has deeply affected the population, culture and landscape.

As an emigré myself at the time, I drew from my own experience which had revealed that "memories and dream images of the past are most often of small and ordinary things, places and moments", elsewhere landscapes, places in Ulster, Catalunya and the south of France from which others had emigrated and might have carried these visual memories. --Rachel Brown



Born in New York City, 1936

Studied photography as private student of Melissa Shook at MIT, Cambridge, MA. 1976.

Represented by Gallery Ehva, Provincetown, Massachusetts, USA, and Galerie Trafic, Paris, France.
