      Artworks Gallery is presenting "Views of Winston-Salem", pastel paintings by Elsie Dinsmore Popkin, as a memorial in her honor one year after her passing January 8, 2005. All the pastel works were done on site by Mrs. Popkin over several years.

      Elsie Dinsmore Popkin received her B.F.A. in painting from Cornell University. In 1975 she became the first Artist-in-Residence at Reynolda House Museum of American Art, in Winston-Salem, NC, and was named Winston-Salem Artist of the Year in 1989. Popkin was a Fellow at Yaddo and at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. In June 2002 she was an Artist-in-Residence at Crater Lake National Park, as part of the Park’s centennial celebration. Her pastel paintings of views from the windows of Cornell’s Herbert F. Johnson Museum were the focus of her show at that museum in June 2003. Popkin's pastel paintings are in many public and private collections and have been featured in numerous art books, including Creative Painting with Pastel, Pastel Solutions, and Collin's Artist's Manual. She is listed in Who's Who in American Art and Who's Who of American Women.
