WESTPORT — Multi-media paintings by Ellen Ehli are featured in July’s artist-of-the-month exhibit at the Westport Book Shop.

The original works, on canvas and paper, can be seen through the end of July during regular business hours at the store, 23 Jesup Road.

A self-taught abstract artist, Ehli describes her style as “retro inspired organic shapes combined with a harmonious palette,” according to a publicity release for the exhibit.

Ehli works with acrylic paints, pastes, oil pastels and other mixed media, exploring textures and depth. To learn more about the artist and her work, visit her website. For more information about the exhibit, visit the Westport Book Shop website or call 203-349-5141.
