Arts Place Art Exhibit: I Did This For You

Erin Elizabeth and Harry Sidebotham

October 4th through November 10th at Arts Place, Portland
Artist Statement:

Erin Elizabeth Sidebotham is a conceptual artist who utilizes unconventional materials in her artwork. her recent bodies of work utilize carriers of celebration such as cake, sprinkles, and confetti in addition to über traditional and loaded symbols such as gold leaf in an attempt to understand the paradoxical hierarchy of experiential value. She use a wide range of materials and approaches in my studio practice, paying Homage to monotony and subjugating celebration with chaos in a desperate attempt to capture fleeting moments while simultaneously surrendering to the inevitability of change.

Erin Elizabeth received her B.F.A. from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her M.F.A. from Illinois State University. Elizabeth’s works have been featured in national and international solo and group exhibitions. Notable exhibitions include Dittmar Memorial Gallery at Northwestern University, Happy Gallery, and The University of St. Francis (two-person). Elizabeth has received press in The Chicago Tribune and Indianapolis Business Journal. She has work in the permanent collections of Harold Washington Community College and the Limerick School of Art and Design in Limerick, Ireland. Elizabeth lives and works in Chicago, IL.
