Lizzie Ellen Owen Wark (1869-1956), American
Red Grain Elevator, undated
OIL ON CANVAS, 11 ¾ x 17 ¾ inches
Gift of Gladys Conway

This East St. Johnsbury farmscape by local artist Lizzie Wark documents the region's living history. Early buildings are maintained and kept in use to the present day, providing the Vermont landscape with many of its distinctive sights. These particular buildings' clean geometry and rich color clearly attracted the artist to this site.
