The Bonneville – The Bonneville is featuring an art show with a special debut for new artist Elizabeth Caswell. This art show is a special debut for new artist Elizabeth Caswell, who says it's an opportunity to capture what it's like being a white American artist in her mid-20s. "Honestly, I've been so privileged, and I could not be where I am if it weren't for the sacrifices of my parents and grandparents," she says. Elizabeth's story is about generational sacrifice and accumulated wealth over years of hard work from her ancestors, many of whom were not white Americans. She has a diverse ancestry, but someone she’s very drawn to is her Filipino grandmother: "She was an artist, yet she studied and devoted her life to being a nurse so that she could provide for her family. In this modern day, I have the whole world at my feet and can do whatever I set my heart to, and that's a privilege. I cannot deny this, and so I am very grateful."
Elizabethology is her brand name because it encompasses all the creativity that comes from her. Elizabeth's pieces range from sculpture, to collage, and fiber art. Her showstopper is Mushroom Gaia, which is a postpartum body with mushrooms growing out the top, to represent sacrifice and rebirth. "I hope through this show people get a real sense of the patterns of this world and how that plays a part in their everyday lives. Signs of consciousness are everywhere, and it's time to wake up and sense the vibrations that show us that we are all alive, connected, and in this experience together.”
