The solo show "Before the Storm" by artist Jennifer Palkowski Jacques, of Barre, Vt., is to be on display at the Tunbridge Public Library from Jan. 24 through March 7, 2018.
Contemporary painter Jennifer Palkowski Jacques has been a passionate artist since childhood, encouraged and educated by her late grandmother Ruth Henson. Fascinated with death, dying, spirits and horror, Jennifer combines her interest in dark and eerie concepts with her love of natural beauty in her paintings.
In Jennifer’s “Before the Storm” exhibition, she displays original technique in her new series of abstract landscapes. A series provoking the emotions within the cold and dark winter months, and a reflection of her personal journey ahead. The artist’s classically, monochromatic palette is inspired by the artist’s love of old black and white photography and the hues in nature.
Jennifer attended CCV where she studied Visual Art, and completed courses such as Art History, Printmaking, Death & Dying, Studio Art, and Color Theory.
She currently resides in Barre with her husband, Jackson, their cat Lux and dog Rosie.
Jennifer has exhibited her work at several Vermont venues or galleries, including The Black Krim Tavern, Downtown Deli, The Kimball Gallery in Randolph, Espresso Bueno in Barre, Bohemian Bread in Marshfield, Capitol Grounds, The Shoe Horn, The Drawing Board in Montpelier and Battery Street Jeans in Burlington. Jennifer has also performed as a live painter on stage for the band KuFui.
