Art Opening & Reception for Jessica Wright

June 21 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Please join us to celebrate our new art, and the artist who creates it!

About Jessica:  Through the technique of gestural abstraction, Jessica Wright invites us into a world of enchantment: a world of forested landscapes that are sometimes burning and bright and other times shrouded in mist. Self-taught, Jess has been painting since the age 12. About four years ago she abandoned the brush—after more than 25 years of work—and hit upon a “throwing” technique that employs acrylics, chopsticks and, of late, her own hands. Her paintings come to life with color and texture—and an immediacy that produces an almost child-like state of wonder and awe in the viewer.

Jess plays with the line between realistic and abstract art. As one appreciator said, Jess’s landscapes provide a refreshing view of nature with a modern edginess. Jess’s fans feel as if they have created another window in their home that looks out upon a scene that touches the heart and stirs the imagination.

As she works to capture some of the most beautiful scenes the natural world has to offer, Jess is transported into a state of mindfulness. It is her greatest hope that her art, in turn, transports her viewers into a state of mindfulness and present moment awareness that fosters the intense appreciation for the natural world that she experiences.
