GALLERY CLARENDON Features : “Flora” – ‘Pastel Still Life Stories’ by Bryan Jernigan
Dates: May 6th– June 10th, 2019
Opening Reception and Meet the Artists: Friday, May 10th, 5-8pm
Free and open to the public
During May, the Arlington Artists Alliance is proud to present “Flora,” a solo show of works from Brian Jernigan, in our Overlook Gallery. These small still life pieces continue my exploration of the medium of pastel which I have been using for more than 6 years. Created on sanded paper, and matted and framed behind glass, I’ve used both hard and soft pastels to push their boundaries and see how they can communicate, say Jernigan. “I’ve also played with the idea of abstracted realism in these pieces, hoping to land in the sweet spot between my love of non-representation and my exploration of things that are real. At the same time, I would like viewers to see what they know, but appreciate the shapes that co-mingle to make the overall pictures.”
Additionally, our May Member Show in the Main Gallery will exhibit new works by our member artists, including paintings, sculpture, glass, jewelry, ceramics and woodworking.
This exhibition runs from May 6th– June 10th, 2019 with the Opening Reception on Friday, May 10th, from 5 – 8pm.
