Gallery Night: Exhibition Opening with Jennifer Levine

  • The Creativity Caravan 28 South Fullerton Avenue Montclair, NJ, 07042 United States (map)

 

Our October exhibit features the work of Montclair-based self-described “neo-outsider artist” Jennifer Levine. According to Levine, her work is inspired by the energy and cultural richness of the town of Montclair. She is also currently spearheading Art Park Montclair, a campaign to transform underused public space into art “playgrounds.”

The exhibit will open on Friday October 6 with a free reception from 7 - 9:30 p.m. The public is invited to meet the artist, view her current work, and hear more about her process and her plans for creating the art park.

Levine says she started painting 10 years ago when she was going through a divorce. "I had no experience painting, but needed something to hold onto as I faced the ordeal. I read Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way and it led me through a process that ultimately changed my life in the most profound and wonderful way. Through drawing and painting, I was able to unearth the depth of my being and find a way to express myself that served others. I continue to paint almost every day and love every minute of the process."

Most of Levine's work is created with Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint, which is sold at {verdigreen} on Glenridge Avenue. (www.verdigreenhome.com)
