Ellen Soffer and I were brainstorming an intriguing title for her most recent exhibit–something better than “New Work by Ellen Soffer.” I noticed she had selected the image Candy Mountain to be on the postcard for the exhibit.
It was a great title for her work and she could use it for the whole show as well.
Can’t get a better name than Candy Mountain. It’s fun, playful, and it alludes to the bright color in her paintings. You can just imagine eating your way through a huge pile of colorful candies.
The show's final title: CANDY MOUNTAIN and Other New Works by Ellen Soffer.
