13 Autumn Show: Paper and Paint – Sun, Oct 13 -1-4 pm Opening Reception
October 13, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - November 3, 2019 @ 4:00 pm
Autumn Show: Paper and Paint featuring paper cut artist Jennifer Hudson and painter Geraldine Butler opens Oct 13 at 1 pm.
Jennifer Hudson – A Maryland artist and avid animal lover, Jennifer began her career as a watercolor painter focusing on realistic nature scenes and surreal illustrations. She attended Baltimore School for the Arts with a concentration in painting. After graduating from BSA Jennifer continued to paint but was intrigued and inspired by the world of contemporary paper art. Self-taught in cut paper art, Jennifer uses an X-acto knife and her imagination to craft delicate worlds in 2-D that display movement, texture and dimension akin to sculptural works. She strives to create pieces that will demonstrate her finely-honed technique and be a source of delight to the viewer. Wildlife, delicate flowers and lace-like structures are continuing motifs in her work.
Geraldine Butler – A Maryland based painter, whose work is seemingly abstract, though inspired by nature and her surroundings. Butler’s work bridges the gap between abstract and representational painting, thus challenging established ideas of how paintings are classified. In doing so she diversifies the type of art her viewers can relate too. Butler’s work is founded on her love of these two seemingly different types of painting and follows many years of working directly from observation. Butler received her BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and is a graduate of the Baltimore School for the Arts (BSA).
