PRESS RELEASE

Jennings, Starcher, Haien to open Saturday, October 12th at The Art Store in Charleston, WV. Three female artists from New York, Kansas and Mississippi will be on exhibit at The Art Store from October 12 through November 15, 2013. The exhibition will open on October 12 with an evening reception to honor the artists from 5:30PM to 7:30PM. The show will feature paintings and photographs that use narrative as a central aspect. Caroline Jennings creates multi-scenic spaces featuring stylized figures. Jennings works use ordinary objects to symbolize the grander themes of life, death and the passage of time. Maggie Starcher paints in gauzy, jewel-toned layers, creating dreamy scenes in which figures and architectural forms intermingle among lush plant life. Starcher manipulates our sense of time, space and memory to develop a visual narrative. Gretchen Haien rounds out the exhibition with simply composed photographs. Haien implores viewers to contemplate the spiritual with photographic images of the most incidental of objects. These artists have had numerous solo exhibitions around the country and are included in many private and public collections such as The Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC; American Express Corporation, New York, NY; The Bridgeman Art Library, London, New York, Paris and Berlin; Mississippi Museum of Art, Jackson, MS; West Virginia State Museum, Charleston, WV; The Erma Byrd West Virginia Women Artists Gallery, University of Charleston, Charleston, WV.
