This exhibition explores the varied landscapes of our county in painting, etchings and constructions, and the works were created during and after Lockdown. The large paintings drew both on the artist’s photos and sketches and her memories from 35 years of living and working in the county; the etchings came after the end of major Lockdown and explore the graphic qualities of our Somerset landscape; whilst the constructions have been made from objects found in the area near her home.
Following the success of ACEARTS’ first ‘virtual’ exhibition, Leonard Green’s ‘In Search of Northern Soul’, the gallery will again utilise the virtual ‘The Abstract Gallery’ for Jenny’s show. The online exhibition can be accessed at https://www.acearts.co.uk/exhibition-2020/
Nina Gronw-Lewis, Curator of ACEarts, commented, “Feedback we received following our first ‘Virtual Exhibition’ showed that people really enjoyed being able to view art during Lockdown. Although we are naturally delighted to be able to welcome people back to our gallery, we think that by running Jenny’s exhibition ‘virtually’ too we will allow people who cannot visit us to appreciate her wonderful work.”
