About the Artist
Phyllis Bryce Ely
Phyllis Bryce Ely is primarily a studio and plain air painter who works with oil, encaustic paints, and graphite. Much of her work is inspired by the landscape of western New York, including the Finger Lakes and Lake Ontario, where she resides with her husband. She often paints sites that she finds on her daily travels, using her van as a mobile studio.
Phyllis earned her BFA in painting and printmaking from RIT in 1981, and is currently represented by the Oxford Gallery in Rochester, NY. Her work has been juried into regional, national, and international exhibitions, receiving many honors and awards over 40 years. Some of these exhibitions include Utopia/Dystopia at Main Street Arts (Clifton Springs, NY, 2017), the Rochester-Finger Lakes Exhibition at the Memorial Art Gallery (Rochester, NY, 2013 & 2023), and Made in New York at the Schweinfurth Art Center (Auburn, NY, 2017 & 2022).
Phyllis is also a long time member of RoCo and has exhibited in many Members Exhibitions, plus the 2019 group exhibition Landscapes and The Unbuilt.

RoCo’s Davis-Havens Sales Gallery offers artworks of all styles at a range of prices, all to benefit Rochester Contemporary Art Center. Hundreds of artworks, which have been donated by collectors (and some artists), are rotated on view regularly. Artworks have been given expressly for this ongoing fundraiser so prices are often significantly discounted. All proceeds from the sale of these artworks support the long term future of RoCo.
Our Future Fund Featured Find is a new initiative highlighting a different artwork and artist each month.
