Elizabeth (Liz) Hosier grew up outside of Asheville; the forest was her playground, while drawing and other creative endeavors her pastime. Liz was fortunate to have teachers who recognized and nurtured her interest in art throughout her early education. She holds an MBA and a BS in Mathematics and moved in the mid-80s to continue her Information Technology (IT) profession at UNC Wilmington. While at UNCW she studied art history and studio art. When the opportunity to retire presented itself, Liz began to seriously pursue her love of art and to seek her artist voice.
Obsessed with colors and light, her work has evolved into process-based abstract painting which gives Liz the freedom to consider a variety techniques, colors and materials.
Liz’s strong connection with nature and innate need to be creative are reflected in her abstract artwork. She works primarily in oil, mixed media, encaustic, and occasionally acrylics. Her
artwork has been shown in local and regional exhibitions and galleries throughout the southeastern United States. Liz works both out of her home in Weaverville, NC and at her studio at Pink Dog Creative in Asheville’s River Arts District. Her work can also be seen at Gallery Citrine in Wilmington where she teaches. She also teaches at ArtPlay in the River Arts District.

The New Still Life

Call for Artists : For centuries artists have arranged articles of daily life and created masterpieces. In the early 20th century “modern” artists began to challenge the traditional still life format and found new ways to explore these familiar objects and their relationship to space, line and form. Artists like Cezanne, Matisse, Braque, and Picasso looked for fresh perspectives, contrasted dynamic colors and questioned visual dimensions to create a new vision of familiar items. We are inviting artists to submit both 2-D and 3-D work for this juried show. Preference will be given to artists demonstrating. creative innovations to give a fresh perspective on the traditional “still life”.
