4 Seasons in the West Village, by ELLEN BRADSHAW.
An intimate show of new oil paintings depicts the artist's favorite streets, haunts, and corners of the West Village where Bradshaw has her studio. For the artist, the village is a refuge from the rest of the city, and her paintings reflect the quiet charm and small town feel of the neighborhood.

Bradshaw's favorite West 4th Street view becomes the centerpiece of the show painted in each of the four seasons with lively brushwork and the artist's personal sense of expressive color.
From long horizontal street views to more intimate shop portraits, Ellen captures that "slice of life simple moments in time" feel of the village…. with its solitary amblers, shop owners, bench-sitters, dog walkers, delivery trucks, and bicycles propped against street signs …… those familiar figures and comforting images of daily routine.
Bradshaw's work was influenced by the realism of the Ashcan painters, as well as the sense of color and atmosphere explored by the Impressionists.
She has shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions and is the recipient of several awards. Ellen is a member of Allied Artists of America, Audubon Artists, and Pen and Brush. She is President of Pleiades Gallery since 2000.
