  • Dallas, TX (1888PressRelease) June 01, 2014 - Elisabeth Schalij, Visual Artist, has been selected as an Honored Member of the Covington Who's Who Executive and Professional Registry. The selection recognizes Elisabeth Schalij's commitment to excellence in Art.

    Elisabeth Schalij, who began as a hands-on artist in 1964, created many children's shows alongside two coworkers at various museums in the New York City area, including the Museum of the American Indians and the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, attracting schools groups from the greater New York City area and introducing them to the history and culture of the Native Americans. She created, wrote, produced programs, built puppets, sets, and props for programs, handled promotions, PR, and helped set up shows at various locations. She did this for 25 years, until 1989.

    Ms. Schalij simultaneously attended The Arts Student League, Pratt Institute, and the New York School of Social Research while also working for several PR firms in NYC from 1982-90. In 1992, she decided to relocate to the Dallas, Texas area to become a full-time visual artist in all media of 2-dimentional art, while also refining her printmaking skills.

    "I've been exposed to the rich history and culture of the Netherlands, going to museums and galleries by the time I was a small child," the Dutch-born artist explained. "I also received classical and cultural education in the Netherlands before moving to NYC."

    Ms. Schalij has exhibited in many one- and two-person exhibitions, has been entered into national juried shows where she has won dozens of awards, is currently exhibiting some of her art in galleries in France, Spain, and Italy, and some of her art can also be found as part of corporate collections at the Four Seasons Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona, Wells Fargo Advisory Corporation in Allen, Texas, Young Retirement Home in Dallas, Texas, and more. She's been a on numerous art boards for various organizations in the Dallas area and is currently involved in the Texas Visual Arts Association, a non-profit organization founded in 1948. Ms. Schalij plans to continue to develop and promote her art in galleries and possibly museums both nationally and internationally over the next few years.
