Selected for  "Reaching for the Light" Rackham, University of Michigan
curated by Chelsea River Gallery 



 Thank you, as always, for visiting the website of Joel Ellis Art. We have had an eventful summer with some rewards as we enter the new season. Purple Pair on this page was selected by the Chelsea River Gallery, (ttps:// ) to be included in the botanical exhibit, "Reaching for the Light" at Rackham Hall on the University of Michigan campus. We are excited to have this joyous work included. On the next page you will see the Joel Ellis Art selection, Bold Beach for the "Art in the Sky" billboard project. The painting was one of six artists selected for the project, a partnership between Adams Advertising and the Greater Lansing Arts Council. Other paintings by Joel Ellis for recent exhibits are included in the following digital gallery.  We hope you enjoy the work on these pages. New exhibits during the Fall can be seen at Technical Innovation Center, East Lansing, and Force by Design, at the top of the Marriot Center, East Lansing, the atrium in the Mid-Michigan Physicians Building and the lovely Shiawassee Art Center in Owosso Michigan.
