More Summer Shows.........

Two of my paintings (pictured below) were selected for the “Contemporary Masters, Artistic Eden” exhibition which was held at the Pasadena Museum of History, August 11th through August 26th.


'The Ferrier's Demonstration'.............oil on panel.............16x20 inches(SOLD)


'Pasadena Historical Museum'............oil on panel.............16x20 inches



::CONTEMPORARY MASTERS, ARTISTIC EDEN::

“Contemporary Masters, Artistic Eden” was the brainchild of a consortium of fine art galleries in the San Gabriel Valley: Galerie Gabrie, Michael Hollis Fine Art, San Marino Gallery, Segil Fine Art, and Tirage Gallery to bring attention to the area as a fine art destination. The initial list of invited artists was culled from among the country’s most honored fine art painters, with the final selection juried by museum officials, independent fine art
professionals, and the gallery sponsors.


Below are a few pix of the festive and successful opening reception. Enjoy!

Bill Sharp said...

Gorgeous paintings, Jennifer. I really love your work.

les lull said...

Now I can see why you have been slacking on posting new stuff for me to drool on. I have an opening tommorrow night and they are alot of work. You communicate so effectively in your work. I have a million questions for you on how you paint, but I guess I will just have to wait for you to start giving workshops. :-( Always a treat to see new stuff from you.

Robin Weiss said...

All the parts come togeather perfectly to make a beautiful whole in "Ferriers Demonstration". Love the reflected light and shadow on white in "Pasadena Historical Museum". Both paintings worthy of being considered contemporary masterpieces. Congratulations again Jennifer!

Jennifer McChristian said...

Thanks Rob,

Yes, the two paintings are in fact studio works.
I will post a step by step demo soon and as far as partying less ~ not an option my friend ;-)

Bottoms up!

Jennifer McChristian said...

Thank you Bill!

Jennifer McChristian said...

Thanks Les,

I hope your opening was a terrific success! Congrats by the way!
I am in fact going to start teaching workshops in the fall. I'm a little nervous, however, I think the experience will be valuable and enriching.

Jennifer McChristian said...

Thank you Robin,

I appreciate your generous and flattering comments!

Hi Jennifer,
earlier this summer I was visiting Ojai and saw some of your paintings in a gallery there. I've forgotten the name of the gallery, but the owner was strumming his guitar and singing a song! Your work is truly exceptional.
If you are teaching a workshop soon and you're close enough to where I live, I would love to be in it.

Jennifer McChristian said...

Hi Silvina,

Thanks for dropping by! By the way, the name of the gallery in Ojai is 'Trowbridge Gallery'.
I had no idea Jeff was musically inclined. Now if only he could provide live music on a regular basis in the gallery ~ would be nice ;-)

Jeff seems to be multi-talented. Entrepreneur, Painter and Musician.

Jennifer McChristian said...

Kudos to you Jeff! We need more like you around :)

These two pieces are STUNNING! The bench in the house piece just nails it. Great, great, great!

Mary Sheehan Winn said...

Come do a workshop in the Cape Cod area :D

Mike said...

Schedule a workshop for us all, Jen! I have a feeling we could all learn a ton from you!

Daniel Peci Fine Arts said...

I love the intensity of color and light in your paintings!

Jennifer McChristian said...

Thank you Cooper!

Jennifer McChristian said...

Hi Mary,

Glad you enjoyed the photos of the opening.
I would LOVE to do a workshop in Cape Cod! That would be a great reason to get out there more frequently (and of course, visiting family and friends) ;-)

Jennifer McChristian said...

Thanks Mike!

I will keep you posted as to when and where.

Cheers!

Jennifer McChristian said...

Thank you Daniel!

Michael Pieczonka said...

Jennifer, the Ferrier's Demonstration is AMAZING!! verrrrry nice.. great rendering of the horse! No surprise you are included in a contemporary master's showing. Both beautifully done, I can't believe they are studio pieces actually.. the light looks so real.

keep it up, Mike!

Frank A. said...

Jennifer..congratulations ! Mighty impressive...great "stuff". Wish I could have responded sooner..just getting back on line..

..take care. :-)

Jennifer McChristian said...

Thanks Michael! :)

Jennifer McChristian said...

Thank you Frank and welcome back!

Mary Sheehan Winn said...

How can we make that Cape Cod workshop happen?
I second the motion on the red car. It drew my eye immediately and then across the painting. Your edges are brilliant!
