My work was curated from the National Diploma Collection for a juried group exhibition at the Peel Art Gallery and Museum, in celebration of the 90th anniversary of the Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour. ("Gasparini Room" 14 x 21" Watercolour)
Jennifer has been invited to be part of TREX, a travelling exhibit produced by the Art Gallery of Alberta and funded by Alberta Foundation for the Arts . The exhibition entitled "Plate Tectonics" and curated by Shane Golby will travel Alberta from 2018 - 2020. Five Alberta artists were chosen, each exhibiting 4 landscape paintings representative of a wide spectrum of styles and philosophies.
The AFA's Travelling Exhibition (TREX) program strives to ensure every Albertan is provided with an opportunity to enjoy fully developed exhibitions in schools, libraries, health care centres and smaller rural institutions and galleries throughout the province. Here is a link to the current TREX exhibition http://www.youraga.ca/exhibitions/trex For more information, visit the AFA website.
Thanks to Canada House Gallery for a successful solo exhibition of my new body of work, "The Architecture of Landscape," exhibited April 6 - 16, 2016.
The exhibition was composed of 22 new landscapes, architecture, and still lifes, exploring the architectural qualities of landscape, in terms of structure, strength, line, and geometry; and how architecture relates to it’s surroundings or landscape, with architectural and still life elements as a landscape in themselves. These watercolours and charcoals mainly focus on Alberta’s wild and chaotic Rocky Mountains contrasted with Architecture, both local and European. Our terminology of mountains especially uses architectural language ie. spire, castle, buttress, fortress, column, cathedral and so on, and it feels natural to use these terms when experiencing the mountains.
