The Magic Man is really a shaman, colorful, wise and in touch with the worlds of magic and medicine. I believe we all have lost powers within us that we need to reach in to find. At one time we had, and have lost, the intuitive wisdom of all animals and birds.

Getting to Know Darlene

Darlene McElroy sees creating art as similar to reading Turkish coffee grounds – a story becomes revealed as one looks at the surface, texture and color. Her works use a variety of materials ranging from acrylics paints to collage. She currently lives in New Mexico and has been greatly influenced by the work of Robert Rauschenberg. She encourages viewers to search for their narrative interpretation when viewing a work.
