Charming The Wilds: Opening Reception
AFA Gallery of SoHo is pleased to present Charming The Wilds, a solo exhibition of all new paintings by Jennybird Alcantara. The Artist will be in attendance for an opening reception on Saturday, June 13th from 6PM to 8PM. The event is free and open to the public. RSVP requested. The exhibition will be on view from June 11th through July 2nd in its entirety and thereafter a collection of original works, when available will remain as part of the permanent collection.
Charming The Wilds is the product of a slow evolution – a combination of inspirations from past work and familiar creatures and emblems. The ability to charm is a special kind of power – it transcends the aesthetic. The charmer’s allure is not without the possibility of mischief and an air of deviousness. Players in Jennybird’s world of myth, fable, and fantasy interact with the wilds that exist both in nature and in ourselves. Their narrative is darkly romantic.
