Jennifer Hendry was born in 1964 in Abilene, Texas and grew up in beautiful East Texas. Having a fine artist and professor as a mother helped Jennifer develop an appreciation for art and especially her love of colors and their interactions with one another. Even though she has always been very interested in painting, only in the last few years has she devoted herself to art and experimenting with colors and pigments. Although she has painted landscapes and still life in oils, she most recently has been painting abstract works with acrylics and resin.

“My paintings are about the way the colors dance and combine and how that interaction changes our perception of them. The different densities of the pigments cause them to sink into each other or float on my surface forming beautiful organic interchanges of color. I very often have an image in mind of what I want as a final result but more often than not the paint takes over and leads me in another direction. My intention is to express my inner joy and create beautiful images for others to enjoy.”

Food and wine pairings are a collaboration by Chef Monday and the award-winning culinary team at 1800 Prime Steakhouse and by Eagle Distributing. The event is $25 per person and you pay at the door the night of the event.

Upcoming Exhibition:

Jono Goodman

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017 from 5:30 pm – 8 pm

Jonathan Goodman was born in Shreveport, LA and received his Bachelor of Fine Arts (2005) from Louisiana State University.  Thereafter, he was granted a Professional Printers Certificate (2006) from the Tamarind Institute of Lithography and went on to earn his Master of Fine Arts (2010) from the San Francisco Art Institute.  Goodman’s use of layer and color arrangement, technique explorations, and constant reformatting of his work allows him to stay engaged in a project while assisting in creating an image that is completely satisfying. These essentials, along with other conventional elements are the leading vehicle for translating his inner vision and relating it to the viewer.
While his abstract imagery has become synonymous with the medium of printmaking (as well as collage), Jonathan’s work stems from extensive exploration of various etching and lithographic techniques.  Lithography has become a favored medium for Goodman, who has collaborated with an assortment of artists spanning across the United States.  As Jonathan Goodman’s creative endeavors begin to hit full stride, his interest in printmaking shows no sign of subsiding as he continually returns to the process that allows him to “keep on going.”

When defining his work, Jono states, “For every end there is a beginning. Through collage, lithography and etching, and other various printmaking methods, I strive to create a composition that represents the rebirth I find in the wake of deterioration and decay.  Whether it’s destruction from water intrusion or devastation and displacement of city blocks, nature’s disasters create fascinating visual compositions that seemingly cannot be reproduced by humans.  I find there is a poetic beauty in the monumental scale of wreckage created by these phenomena.  On one hand, large-scale devastation caused by the elements of nature seem to create unanticipated, abrupt compositions; while on the other hand, there exists damage and ruin that can only form over a specific amount of time.  Engaging in this imaginative exploration of corrosion allows me to not only harvest inspiration to reshape my art but also allows me the opportunity visually create an example of rebirth for viewers to explore for themselves.”
