> DESCRIPTION

Using the painting Wave Break by JEN ZEN® (aka Jen Grey, CSULB Art Professor, Faculty Emerita) the Community Gallery considers our fragile clean water supply. 

In an effort to collaborate with the community, the gallery will install a second wave that is a collaboration with young artists and the community. Together, the pieces push us to consider what preserving clean water and clean oceans entails. Is this something that we want preserve? What steps can we take to keep fresh water clean for our families? What steps can we take to keep the ocean free of trash? 

To submit a color swatch or poem about water on a 5x5 inch piece of paper, please email, submit@angelsgateart.org or call 310-519-0936. 

Brief Bio:
"Being famous is not what counts. It's finding Joy of Life in what you do, and in creation itself." Says JEN ZEN® (aka Jen Grey, CSULB Art Professor, Faculty Emerita). Jen exhibits in the Real World AND Virtual Worlds where online populations are sometimes staggering. This artist has created a lot of art... including 100's of exhibitions, grants, awards, and commissions and publications world wide, including a one-personshow at the Museum of Modern Art in Dalian, China. Jen works with any kind of drawing and painting materials within reach... paint, pencils, fire, dirt, hi-tech computer software and gadgetry, whatever. She's even used a happy cat as a paintbrush, but draws on elemental forces for inspiration... earth, wind, fire, ice and WATER.
