Electra and Bill: Honoring an Immeasurable Contribution Exhibition

Friday, September 13, 2019 to Thursday, November 21, 2019
9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Stamelos Gallery Center, 1st floor
Mardigian Library (ML)

"Electra and Bill: Honoring an Immeasurable Contribution” features watercolors and acrylic paintings by Electra from the UM-Dearborn collection, along with select works by other artists that were donated by the couple. The exhibition will run September 13 through November 21.

The show honors the significant contributions to the university by William and Electra Stamelos over the last forty years. Electra and Bill contributed greatly to the university's art collection for decades including donating the majority of Electra's body of work and many other art pieces that they collected throughout their years together. Electra’s work moved effortlessly between abstract and representational imagery dissecting many compositions into smaller views with varying perspectives. She described her work as figurative abstraction with many levels of interpretation, and she often filled every inch of the canvas. Electra had a talent for light and color and often painted from two trays of forty-eight colors each, using paint made by three different manufacturers for each color.

Electra’s artwork has been exhibited throughout the United States for decades and has won numerous awards. It has been acquired by a large number of private and public art collections across the country.
