New Exhibit & ArtWalk Entry by Painter Sy Ellens
We are delighted to welcome Sy Ellens back to West Michigan. Sy’s growing up on a farm developed his love of the land as depicted in his colorful aerial paintings. In addition to the beautiful ArtWalk entry by renowned painter Sy Ellens, which can be seen in our front window, we are excited to have a number of his other works on display inside the gallery at the same time. A successful freelance artist for over 35 years, Sy Ellens graduated from Kendall School of Design and Western Michigan University. He was a teacher at Kalamazoo Christian High School for nine years and at Vandeikya Government Teachers’ College in Nigeria for three years.

“Having grown up on a farm, I have developed a special relationship with the land…And it is this special relationship
which God has given me that I am trying to explore and creatively express in my paintings.”
– Sy Ellens
