Elizabeth Allison


Elizabeth Allison was born in Chicago, Illinois.  She received her BFA from University of Michigan before moving to New York in 1999, where she continued her studies at the Art Students League.  Her recent paintings have been inspired by the pulsating landscape of New York City and the surrounding region. These paintings chase the light at dusk or dawn, examine times of transition, and peer at the spaces between things. They aspire to capture the way the air not just looks, but smells, feels and changes.


Allison’s art has been installed in Riverside Park South, Van Cortland Park, the Greenpoint Sculpture Wall and Rockland Community College.  She is the recipient of the Raluca Popescu Memorial Scholarship, a Nessa Cohen Grant, three Elizabeth Greenshields Grants, and was the only American included in Beijing Tokyo Art Projects inaugural Neo-Morism Exhibition.  She is represented by Massey Lyuben Gallery in New York.
