Argentine Embassy to feature a South Jersey artist

Liliana LIFE (Liliana Ines Friesel Elkouss) will have her paintings featured at the Embassy of Argentina in Washington, DC. “SPURS and LACE” will run July 12 through Sept. 13. There will be an opening reception Thursday, July 12 from 6-7:30 p.m. The exhibit may be viewed Monday-Friday from 3-5 p.m.

Artist, educator and co-founder of Casa Argentina en Philadelphia, Liliana was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she studied at the National Schools of Fine Arts Manuel Belgrano, Prilidiano Pueyrredon, and Ernesto de la Carcova. In Philadelphia, she studied at Temple University, Tyler School of Art, and La Salle College. Her paintings have been shown in over 200 exhibits in North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. Her artwork can be found in numerous public and private collections. She has been recognized as a Prominent Latino of Camden County.

“This body of works entitled ‘SPURS and LACE’ was born from the cultural fusion that defines my identity and flows through my spiritual and cognitive life, unconsciously or not. I gather elements like lace and gauchos’ spurs to point out the power of the past, the value of the present, and the joy of new journeys and opportunities that the future will bring,” she has written, adding, “Colorful backgrounds provide a metallic luminosity, while intriguing tones want to allude to past and future centuries that surprised and will surprise us with darkness and light.”
