This Month in the Art Gallery

This Month in the T. Ross Kelly Family Gallery... Dr. Youxin Yang and Jennifer Dunning!

On the Hanging Displays:

Youxin Yang, Painter & Filmmaker

Youxin Yang is a world-renowned Chinese painter and filmmaker as well as an award- winning scientist working in cancer research. Her paintings have been shown internationally, including solo exhibitions at the Art Museum of Nanjing, China, Espace Richelieu in Paris, France, and more! Youxin Yang won the Grand Jury award at the New York International Art Festival in 2005, and her series of calligraphic paintings won the Featured Member Artist award at the 2008 National Women’s Caucus for Art (WCA) Featured Artist Competition. 

In the glass case:

Jennifer Dunning, Mixed Media

Inspired by swirling energy, waves and the sun, Jennifer began experimenting with color and big brushes in 2006. Her works on paper begin with a large swatch of color and end with surprise folds and veils. Jennifer’s recent work has been with encaustic paints using layers of wax to create depth while combining image transfer with light colors. Jennifer calls these works “Seeing light through the Dark.” Through this process, she’s been experimenting with dipping antique embroidered linens in medium and molding 3D ‘figures’ to preserve fond memories of summers.
