FIRST FRIDAY ARTWALK IS BACK!
Open for Interpretation
Lori Pitten Jenkins, Renee Decator and Barbara Desrosiers
Lori Pitten Jenkins, Renee Decator and Barbara Desrosiers explore what’s in a word… 9 words to be exact. 3 words, 3 artists, 27 works of art. Open for Interpretation, a 3 women exhibit, opens at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery on February 1, 2021. This exhibit will feature the work of Lori Pitten Jenkins, Renee´ Decator and Barbara Desrosiers. Come to the 1st Friday Opening Reception on February 5, from 5:30-8:30 pm to experience the different visions of these unique artists. All 3 women are members of Fifth Avenue Art Gallery and each have a distinctly unique style and media. Lori Jenkins, a Florida native, is an internationally known watercolorist with a sharp sense of irony. Her watercolors can best be described as intense. Color and contrast play an integral part in her work. “The WOW factor is my ultimate goal.” (Lori Jenkins) Renee´Decator, who grew up in Daytona Beach, Florida, utilizes collage elements in vibrant and striking colors to fire up the viewer’s imagination. She describes herself as a ‘southern expressionist.’ Renee is heavily influenced by her surroundings and the experiences of growing up in the South. Barbara Desrosiers, a Florida transplant for 15 years, approaches her work from a technical point of view. Her work begins on an ipad, frequently from photos that she has taken, and is ultimately transformed into an ink transfer onto watercolor paper. She brings years of world travel and other cultures to her work. This exhibit promises to give you three distinctly different views of the same subjects.
