Jennifer Pulchinski is the artist of intriguing barbed wire sculpture and unforgettable portrait drawings. Her drawings, rendered in soft pastel, are reminiscent of what makes us human, emotionally. Her sculptures display an inviting, soft movement made of an intense material. Pulchinski is always recognized for her individual style.
An exhibit of Jennifer’s drawings from 2007 to current work will be on display at the Zoot Art Gallery March 4, 2011-June, 2011. This collection will include drawings from her “Artists in Studio” theme, self-portrait work, drawings from her Identity Series 08-09 and individual portraiture work. A public opening reception will be held March 16, 5 – 8 PM. The gallery is located at the Zoot Headquarters building, 555 Zoot Enterprises Lane, near Four Corners. See map.
Barbed Wire, Ink, Rocks, Wood, Wax, Wire and String, featuring work by Gabriel Kulka and Jennifer Pulchinski, explores the minutely detailed and the enormously abstract. Sculptor Gabriel Kulka creates tiny sculptural assemblages with found objects, exquisitely crafted frames, and cast figures with out of proportion limbs. These little worlds are perfectly tattered and exquisitely odd. Jennifer Pulchinski crafts large panels of wood with abstracted prints of barbed wire rendered in layers of ink and paper, as well as woodblock prints of faces done in her trademark slightly off kilter way. Together, the two artists present a body of work both prickly and compelling.
Opening reception on Friday, July 10th 5-8p.m, in tart, room #107C of the Emerson Center, 111 S. Grand Ave., call 582-0416 for more information. The show will be on display from July 10th through August 12th.
In case you haven’t checked out The Banner before, know that the space up there at the top of the page is yours for the asking–just send an image to me, firstname.lastname@example.org. Ideally I would post a new banner once a month or so. It’s especially appropriate for extra publicity if you have a show coming up. It is an odd shape, but with great possibilities for intriguing details, which can always be supplemented by a full image and/or a link to your web site. For the sake of variety, I’ve been occasionally updating it with my own photographs, but I’d rather show your work.
The latest banner is from Jennifer Pulchinski, cribbed (with permission) from her web site Jen Pulchinski Portraits. By the way, all previous banners are archived for posterity at Art Bozeman Banners.
The exact shape of the banner is 770 pixels wide by 140 pixels high, but I can crop that from any image it’s convenient for you to send. So let’s see what you can do to beautify Art Bozeman.
