Margate Memories - Lucy! by Eleni Litt
mixed media collage and acrylic on wrapped canvas, 12 x 9 inches
Artist Statement: Growing up in Philadelphia in the 1950s I have wonderful memories of "going down the shore," walking on the boardwalk, playing in the sand, swimming in the ocean, and driving down to Margate to see Lucy, the Elephant. After many years away from the area I returned, delighted to revisit Lucy in her new home, and sharing her with my husband.
