 Third Coast View, 30x40, is one of the newest works by Joel F Ellis. A popular design, Third Coast View, is inspired by the magnificent Great Lakes dune lined coast.

  Acknowledging the Muse

East Lansing's Technology Inovation Center presents a theme for quarterly exhibitions. The Spring 2015 show features Muse. For Joel Ellis, the powerful voice of ever changing Great Lakes dunes are a significant Muse in his work of artistic expression. The show on the second floor of the center, 325 E. Grand River (the old Barnes and Noble building) will display visions of the Muse for several artists through May 17, 2015. A reception for the work, Sunday March 8, includes refreshments and music by artists Maureen Ryan and John Kronenburg, 1-3 pm. Regular office hours for the gallery are Monday - Friday 8am to 5 pm. Thanks to curator, Kelly Boyle.
