Elena Filshtinska & Jenny Nix Featured Artist Show at Maxine Orange Gallery MAY 31

May 31 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us at the Maxine Orange Studio Gallery in Fort Walton Beach FL on May 31st from 5-8 pm,
to celebrate 2 local artists in this beautiful & unique, creative setting.

Featured Artists:
Russian born artist, ELENA FILSHTINSKA lives and works in Fort Walton Beach. Emerald Coast Magazine featured Elena in their December 2022 issue in an article titled: “Movement Through Color”. Elena has been privileged to exhibit her paintings through the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County, NWF public spaces, and with the Arts and Design Society of Fort Walton Beach. Elena’s art is featured in homes and professional offices, as well as private collections across America and in Ukraine, Germany, Israel, Canada, Mexico, Taiwan, Japan, Russia and Australia. Themes for her works are taken from everything that is beauty and from what her soul feels, including still life, landscapes, fairytale themes, her own imagination and abstract. Elena draws a lot of dancers and ballerinas. As Elena says, “Dance as a means of expressing emotions through movements always was a huge inspiration for me.” She brings together nature and dance in a new way, and when you see her paintings you feel music. Elena’s works have flourished in various styles and mediums, including oil, watercolor, pastel and acrylic. Elena’s canvases speak by color and bring her fresh point of view to life. Her paintings give breath to a feeling of movement,
emotion and expression.
JENNY NIX’s art journey began in her 30’s after a move to Switzerland. She found herself without a career and without her children for the first time. She was given some discarded wanted and old canvases and started painting for the first time in her life.
In an attempt to help heal her pain, she started writing poetry as well.. She was alone during Covid and started to record what she had written. Because the art and the words were born from the same place, she decided to match them up. What she offers now is an experience where you can view her art and listen in her own words the inspiration behind the art, her own ekphrasis interpretation. Make sure you bring your phone and headphones so you can immerse yourself in art and poetry.
