Celebrating the Life of a Beloved Cary Artist

Earlier this year, artists in Cary NC lost one of our own to cancer. Besides creating her own unique abstract art, Ella Tracey Williams was involved in many aspects of the Cary arts scene, from helping organize the Western Wake Artists Studio Tour, to volunteering at the Cary Arts Center.

Ella's art was undoubtedly eclectic. She had a passion for texture, and would use any medium, and often found objects, to convey what she wanted to say in her work. Here are some of her pieces.

Ella was a tiny person but after a few minutes chatting with her, you knew that she had a spine of steel. But what I remember most fondly about her was how quick she was with her impish smile and kind words. She is very much missed.

Relationships as in living describe the life lived, so in art, relationships of space, form, line, color and values describe the context and language in each piece of art.
