Tracy Ellyn | Award of Excellence | Manhattan Arts International

Artist Tracy Ellyn was juried into Manhattan Arts International's "The Healing Power of Art," and is recipient of the Award of Excellence. The exhibition, curated by Renee Phillips from entries from around the world, features Tracy's piece, "Evening MiSheberach" from her Refuah series. The 5 feet long mixed media piece with pen & ink on metal is made of multiple layers of 19th, 20th and 21st century techniques, which has become her signature.
A tireless advocate for the arts in healing venues, Tracy, who is founder and director of The Zen Tov Project for Healing Through the Arts, submitted the following statement along with her art piece:
"Art is the Great Healer. It is often at the most unexpected times that we turn to art to soul-search, make a higher connection, relieve the burden of physical and emotional pain, and commune with God or something intangibly higher than ourselves. Art is a universal language. Whether from east or west, it signifies pure hope, and hope springs eternal."   ~Tracy Ellyn
In the Fall, the artist plans to place pieces from her Refuah series in hospitals and chemo rooms in Miami, New York, Jerusalem, and as requested by individuals, hospitals and foundations.
The artist can be contacted at her website at

Tracy Ellyn | ARC Gallery | We the People Exhibition

So timely, given the shocking shooting deaths of Castile and Sterling. If you'll be in Chicago, my piece, "With Liberty and Justice for All," will open at ARC Gallery on July 20.
Some of you may remember this image as a contender for a White House exhibition on inequality. It didn't make it into that show. But I'm grateful it will be at the historic ARC Gallery, for the "We the People" exhibition.
It's a much simpler image than my usual style, which is typically very textured, layered and eclectic. Nonetheless, the topic of justice for all, discrimination for none, is an important one, so here it is.
