Gainesville, GA., September 20, 2012 – Gainesville State College’s Roy C. Moore Art Gallery presents embrace: Paintings by Jennifer Hartley, September 26 – October 25.
embrace: Paintings by Jennifer Hartley features a series of vibrantly colorful double portraits, depicting a broad range of relationships between two people: parent and child, brothers, sisters, lovers, friends.
When she began this series, Hartley was initially seeking “positive examples of love and affection.” She “chose the embrace as a symbol for fondness and adoration,” and combined snapshots of her friends and colleagues with found images of strangers.
Hartley graduated from The University of Georgia with a Bachelor in Fine Arts in 1985, and Master in Fine Arts in 2009. She has been a professor of Foundation Studies at Savannah College of Art and Design since 2009.
Hartley’s artist’s talk on Tuesday, October 9, at 2PM, will be followed by a reception. This event is free and open to the public. Throughout the exhibit, the gallery will be open Monday through Wednesday from 10 am to 4 pm and Thursday from 10 am to 7 pm.
