SW Art Magazine, May 2012  view the full article on my blog
I want to pass on this very nice magazine piece for May 2012. Thank you SW Art Magazine and writer Gussie Fauntleroy for really 'getting it.' Excerpt: "There is paradox in Ken Elliott’s landscapes: They pulse with powerful color, and yet collectors speak of his paintings as exuding a sense of calm. They contain choreographed rhythm and order, even within the seeming disorder of winter trees along a creek. “I’m trying to give the paintings muscle, poetry, power, and gentleness. I’m screaming—but in a civilized way,” the artist jokes..."

American Art Collector Magazine, June 2008
excerpt: "Total Arts Gallery is beginning its 39th year as Taos' preeminent destination gallery. ...the gallery is happy to announce the new addition of painter Ken Elliott. Elliott's canvases display the strikingly vivid modern hues in which he chooses to render his contemporary landscapes."

Colorado Expression Magazine, June-July 2008  Julie Fryberger Art Consulting article, with illustration of "Blue Wall" oil, 40x40 inches.


InformArt Magazine, Spring, 2003 issue


US Art Magazine, March 2002 issue. The giclee print 'Cherry Red Trees' has been selected as one of the 50 best images of 2001.

The Pastel Journal
  May-June 2002  "Giclee print becomes part of the painting process"

New York Times On the Web Wine Today, December 26, 2000  by Kathleen Buckley
excerpt: 
"What to do with the foil, cork and wire cap .. There is always the tendency to want to save these as a memory of the event. While it is sweet, it does not enhance the home décor any more than colored water does in clear Appalachian glass bottles. There are a few exceptions.... American artist Ken Elliott makes striking abstract collages using pastels, oils and the foil from the Champagne bottle."

Artweek Magazine, September 1991, "Lovers of the Land, the Landscape in Pastel at Gallery 30"

US Art Magazine, October 1990, "Six California Landscape Painters"
