The Small Gallery at the Easton Public Library will exhibit “A Walk in the Woods: Selected Works by Janine Brown” from April 5th – May 15th. A reception for the artist will be held on Tuesday, April 10th from 6-8pm.
The exhibition includes linoleum cut prints, paintings and pastel works inspired by photographs taken during walks in Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Wyoming. For the past two years, Brown has been creating works inspired by the trees in her own backyard, as well as, other locations. Brown states, “When I go on vacation, I always take my camera so that I can document my trips. Recently, I have been using my photographs of nature to create semi-abstracted artworks.” All works will be available for purchase with a percentage of sales going to benefit the Easton Public Library.
Ms. Brown works in a wide range of mediums and styles, which change based on what she feels will best represent her thoughts. The artist’s award winning artwork has been featured in regional galleries, including the Westport Arts Center and The Laura Barton Gallery in Westport; Rockwell Art and Framing in Wilton; and the Bridgeport Arts and Cultural Council and City Lights Gallery in Bridgeport.
In addition, Brown’s work has been selected for numerous juried exhibitions, which include; “Spectra 2010” at the Silvermine Guild of Art, “Flower (re)Power” at the Housatonic Museum of Art, “Spectrum 2010” at the Carriage Barn Arts Center in New Canaan; and “Abstract and Geometric” at The Woman Made Gallery in Chicago, Illinois. Ms Brown resides in Fairfield and works in a studio in the American Fabrics Arts Building in Bridgeport.
