About the event

Experience the soul-stirring beauty of nature through the evocative paintings of James Ellis. Inspired by his adventures in national and state parks, forests, and mountain ranges, James captures the essence of serene landscapes and majestic vistas with unparalleled skill and passion.

For James, nature is not just a backdrop but a source of profound emotion, sensory awakening, and spiritual rejuvenation. His artwork, often stemming from his encounters along the North Shore of Lake Superior, serves as a portal back to those cherished moments—be it the rush of a waterfall, the tranquility of a lake, or the grandeur of a mountain peak.

With each stroke of his brush and palette knife, James masterfully translates these memories onto canvas, creating visual narratives that invite viewers to immerse themselves in the tranquil beauty of the natural world. Using the alla prima technique, he breathes life into blank canvases, infusing them with the essence of the landscapes that have left an indelible mark on his soul.

Through his art, James invites you to bring a piece of nature's splendor into your home—a space where friends, family, and you can linger, reminisce, and reconnect with the magic of special places. Just as the mountains sing and the trees clap their hands, let James Ellis's paintings fill your surroundings with joy, peace, and the timeless beauty of the great outdoors.
