The Art Menu, an online gallery dedicated to promoting the works of emerging and established Dallas Artists, announces the addition of Artist Elizabeth Dryden to their roster of elite local talent.
The mixed media artworks of Elizabeth Dryden are steeped in symbolism and metaphor. Not only are her painted, contemporary collages full of found papers and low relief objects, they tease the viewer’s sense of curiosity and playfulness. Her cast of characters, dominated by animals, long to tell the stories of her reality.
“The idea of how something (anything) can be interpreted so differently by each individual person intrigues me. We all have had different life experiences, we have our own opinions, and our own values and beliefs- therefore we each have our own idea of reality. My art is my own reality and the way I see things. It’s a language I use to say what I can’t express in words.” - Elizabeth Dryden
“Served”, Elizabeth Dryden
Dryden is originally from Highland Park and currently lives in Uptown Dallas. Graduating from Texas Woman’s University with a degree in Art Education in 2005, she has since lived in Arizona, Washington state, and Kentucky before returning to her home state of Texas to further her career as an artist. In addition to several gallery shows nationwide, her artwork has locally been featured at Mary Tomas Gallery in the Design District and Stephanie Anne in Highland Park Village.
The Art Menu represents an elite group of Dallas area artists, each bringing their own unique talents to the table via their diverse mediums and subject matter.
They provide a much-needed service for artists and the artistic community at large by discovering exceptional local creative talent as well as providing an online platform that publicizes and markets their work. The works of these artists then become available to the larger artistic community in the form of limited edition giclée art prints and canvas prints.
The giclée process requires the original art on canvas to be professionally scanned and digitized, assuring the highest level of quality reproduction.
“Our website helps artists put their work out into the public eye,” said David Hobbs, Owner of The Art Menu. “People buy art because they relate to the piece and the story behind it. We want The Art Menu to be a platform for the artist to share his creativity and his authentic voice.”
