Second Saturdays Art Opening @ Art on the Trax with Jill Jensen

June 11, 2016 @ 16:00 - 18:00

Free

Art on the Trax will present Mixed Media Prints and Fiber Art by Jill Jensen during the month of June, with a Second Saturday Artist Reception on Saturday, June 11th.

Painting, printmaking and drawing have been cornerstones for Lynchburg artist, Jill Jensen.  She has used them separately to create finished works of art and since 1998 has combined them in her fiber based work.  Jensen’s work combines her love of bold graphic images and intense color.  Relief printing provides her with the opportunity to swim in those elements. Beginning in June 2001, Jensen started a weekly practice of making small art quilts.  One shape is chosen for the entire year and each week she creates a journal-like entry.  Her work has been included in regional, national and international exhibitions and  twenty one-person shows.  She has been a fellow at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and has had seventeen artist-in-education residencies.

Please join us for our Second Saturday Opening Reception on June 11th. This reception is part of Crozet’s Second Saturday events and runs from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. We’ll be serving up The Art Box’s famous ice cream sundaes topped with fruit from local orchards.

All events are free and open to the public. Art on the Trax is located at Creative Framing and The Art Box, across from the Olde Crozet Train Station, 5784 Three Notch’d Road in Crozet, Virginia.
