Jane Turner: The Evolution Of An Artist, Paintings & Sculptures That Tell A Story
You’re Invited To Our Free Opening Reception
Friday Evening, February 12, 2021, 7–9pm
On View through May 29*
Jane Turner is a self-taught artist and resident of the historic African American Town of Eatonville, Florida. She began her artistic journey in 2006, after a 30-year career in social work. Though her paintings are self-taught, she pursued sculpture and photography instruction at Crealdé School of Art as well as figurative sculpture and bronze casting at The Maitland Art Center, where she shared her work in a 2018 solo exhibition. Turner’s work is deeply narrative, rich with themes of social justice, and depictions of historic events blended with her experiences of life as an African-American woman. The paintings in this exhibition give the viewer a glimpse of what is in the heart and mind of this strong and talented woman. Curated by Barbara Tiffany.
FOR THE SAFETY OF ALL: During the opening reception, the gallery will be carefully monitored by Crealdé staff, and will have a capacity of 10 people for 10 minutes. We expect visitors to be responsible by wearing masks and practicing social distancing. Refreshments will be served outdoors.
