of "For M.":
"M, for my grandmother, Mary. She's a painter (almost 90 now, and can't
paint anymore) and has been a big influence on my work."

"For M." is Elara Tanguy's first exhibit at Form/Space Atelier.
Curator Paul Pauper made his first studio visit to Elara at the Bemis
Building in 2009.

A Seattle-based artist and illustrator, Elara Tanguy has created
original, hand-drawn art for companies such as: Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice
Cream, Storey Publishing, Workman Press, Garden Way, and Brown Shoe Co.,
Inc. She received a BFA from Parsons School of Design in 2003.
