With Natural Inclinations, Jennifer Anderson presents us with a new body of work in oils, inspired by the pages of her artist journals. Keeping sketchbooks and art journaling are critical components of Anderson’s creative practice.
A long-time printmaker and watercolorist, Anderson pushed outside her comfort zone by choosing oils as the primary medium for this new collection. In the process she discovered fresh ways to express her intimacy with the beauty of the natural world, now capturing moments in oil on canvas in addition to her widely-respected works on paper.
To complement this show, Anderson is releasing a newly published art book titled Natural Inclinations: Pages from an Artist’s Journal. This book showcases more than 90 images and text from her beloved art journals.
Join Anderson for a virtual gallery talk and book-signing on Saturday, September 12, beginning at 2 pm. There she will discuss art journaling and describe how she interprets and develops these images into oil paintings.
Books will be available for purchase at the Carmel Art Association, and you may request yours to be signed or inscribed by calling the gallery at 831-250-3347.
