Elise Schweitzer: Container Garden

Friday, October 11, 2019 at 10:00am to 4:00pm

The Flippo Gallery of Randolph-Macon College is proud to present "Container Garden," an exhibition of paintings by Elise Schweitzer.


Join us for the opening reception September 8, 3-5pm at the Flippo Gallery, Pace-Armistead Hall (211 N. Center St.), Randolph-Macon College. This event is free and open to the public.


In this exhibition of oil paintings by Elise Schweitzer, two distinct painting strategies hang together. Illusionistic paintings of lemon trees call back to Roman frescos of gardens, while small abstract paintings create illusions of boxes of air, open windows, and transparent sunlight. Schweitzer is an Associate Professor of Painting at Hollins University, and has been an artist in residence at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and the International Center for the Arts in Montecastello in Italy.


The exhibition will run through October 11, 2019. The Flippo Gallery is open Monday – Friday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. or by appointment. Email the gallery at for questions, directions, or special appointments.
