About the artist

Elijah Kell is a glass artist from Mint Hill, North Carolina. His artistic journey began at the age of ten when he was first introduced to the medium and found an instant connection. Since then, he has spent the last seven years immersed in the art of glass, developing his craft through self-study and experimentation. As a dyslexic, imagery plays a huge role in his life and he loves bringing a wide range of design ideas into color, texture and form.

 

Recent and upcoming exhibitions include:  

  • Bill and Patty Gorelick Galleries, Charlotte, NC

  • GreenHill Center for North Carolina Art, Greensboro, NC

  • Sertoma Arts Center, Raleigh, NC

  • Artisan's Palate Gallery, Charlotte, NC

  • Skylight Gallery at Mooresville Arts Center, Mooresville, NC

  • McColl Center, Charlotte, NC

  • BAZAL Gallery, Charlotte, NC

 

In addition to glass works permanently installed at two premier hotels in uptown Charlotte, Elijah has numerous private and corporate commissions across the Carolinas and nationwide. For the past two years, his work has also been commissioned by The Jimmie Johnson Foundation where he has served as an event guest speaker on the importance of funding school programs. He is dedicated to giving back to the community and regularly donates his work to support many local nonprofits and causes that are making a difference in Charlotte and beyond.

 

Elijah is a high school senior and an artist-entrepreneur at heart. In 2021 he launched Kell Glass Gallery at The Galleries 811 near uptown Charlotte. He is also proud to be represented by Juelerye Artisan Gallery in Mooresville, NC, where his work is sold to collectors both nationally and internationally.  He enjoys being involved with several local arts organizations and connecting with the arts community. After high school, he looks forward to developing his craft through more intensive study and experimentation while working fulltime as a professional artist and pursuing an arts degree. Elijah's goal is to one day open his own gallery in the greater Charlotte area.
