DISTRICT Arts Presents “Naturally Abstract”
March 31 @ 12:00 pm - May 2 @ 6:00 pmFree
Equally comfortable performing at the keyboard with her jazz trio as she is behind the easel with brush and canvas, Jenny Wilson has flourishing careers in both music and visual arts.
Of her paintings, Jenny says, they “are best described as contemporary landscape or contemporary abstract. Passion for color and texture are what excite me about painting. I am informed by my musical knowledge; gradations of tone color, balance, tension and release, and rhythm all play into how I compose a painting. Painting allows me to stop time, to make choices in slow motion, and to experience the art of composing in a whole new way.”
“Naturally Abstract” features both landscapes and abstracts though the line between them is often blurred. With careful use of color and form, Wilson evokes the natural world in ways that challenge perception.
Jenny has earned a Master of Music Degree at West Virginia University. Her group, the Jenny Wilson Trio, can be heard in many varied venues in the Mid-Atlantic region.
This exhibition runs from March 31 through May 2 and is free and open to the public. Visit DistrictArts.com for gallery hours.
