- Emily Nelligan's charcoal exhibition, These shadowy and ethereal charcoal drawings of Emily Nelligan (American, 1924-2018) are of Cranberry Island, Maine. Although her formal artistic training, which took place at Cooper Union in the 1940s, was in painting rather than charcoal, Nelligan later switched mediums due simply to the fact that charcoal is significantly less expensive. Utilizing this challenging medium, she conveys a specific mood which would be impossible with paint. “If the light was right I would set myself down and try to capture it, I’m utterly dependent on what I see. The quality of the light is the essence of the work.”--Emily Nelligan, quoted in Drawing Magazine, 2015. These paintings were exhibited by Alexandre Gallery of New York City in 2022.
