Samson's Gift

Ellen Diederich

The Taube Museum of Art Main Gallery presents Fargo artist, Ellen Diederich, with Samson’s Gift from February 12 – March 27, 2015. Artwork selections will feature works published in her recent book titled the same. The Lower Gallery will feature a selection of acrylics and watercolors by Diederich as well.
Ellen Jean Diederich, TWSA, RRWS, WSA, WW, is a painter in both acrylic and watercolor. She has a BFA degree in fine art and a BA in art education from Minnesota State University Moorhead and has been painting professionally since 1985. She is a signature member of the Red River Watercolor Society (RRWS) and the Transparent Watercolor Society of America. Diederich was the charter chairman of the RRWS national juried exhibition. She is president of her publishing company, Givinity Press, providing reproductions and a line of note cards and Christmas cards. Diederich also enjoys speaking on her creative process and often combines that with watercolor demonstrations.

Ellen Jean Diederich comes from a family that appreciates the arts, and with that supportive foundation it is no surprise that she became proficient in her art. The artistry and imagination that is Ellen Jean Diederich springs from that solid background to embrace the diverse subjects she paints. From painting to painting Ellen transfers ideas with a fluid graceful style that captures new images from a different perspective. Rural to urban, the soft and whimsical, to the edgy modern creations suggest a timeless reflection of essential impressions, honed by her extensive travels. Proud of her Midwest heritage, Diederich brings a sincerity and love to her work which includes flowers, architecture and domestic animals. Her neo-impressionistic paintings have been displayed and critically acclaimed at numerous national exhibitions.

Ellen also enjoys teaching watercolor workshops, and will hold a three day Basic Watercolor Workshop in conjunction with her exhibition from March 25-27 from 9:00 am - 3:30 pm each day. Fees for the three day workshop are $185. Diederich states, “When I teach, I focus on the basics. No matter what level you are, when you go back to those you can straighten out almost any problem in painting. Because of this, my lesson plans are very simple, yet useful. The only failure you can make is refusing to try…”
The exhibition will run through March 27, 2015. A public reception for the artist will be held on Thursday, March 26th from 5:30 -7:00 pm. During the reception, Diederich will be present a power point program on “The Making of Samson’s Gift” at 6:00 pm, and be available for a book signing of her featured book Samson’s Gift.
Museum and Gift Shop hours: Tues – Fri 10:30 – 5:30 pm, Sat 11:00 am – 4:00 pm or by special appointment. There is no charge for admission, but contributions are accepted to help the Taube Museum fulfill their mission of enriching lives through the visual arts. The exhibition is made possible with support from the North Dakota Council on the Arts.
