About the Event
Jane Dunnewold is an artist, author and educator. Everything she teaches and does is filtered through a deep connection to the energetic, spiritual aspects of human experience. With her passions of psychology of artistry and meaning, Jane's lecture will be a lively review of how artists establish their own visual language, which can infuse work with meaning and depth. She will talk about the parts of a composition and how each plays a role not unlike actors in a stage play. Contrast, relationship, symmetry, focal point, abstraction. These are terms Jane will help us get to know better. She will provide a clearer understanding of composition basics with an emphasis on the articulation of our personal visual language. Q&A after the presentation will allow us to continue the conversation. Jane is joining us from her studio in Kyle, Texas.
She believes each of us has an inherent creative intelligence. Making things--whether it's cooking, painting a room, or dyeing cloth--is supremely satisfying. In the process of creating she believes we are linking to every generation of makers before us and reaching for the Divine at the same time. It's a gift and a pleasure everyone should experience. And can.
Jane teaches and lectures internationally, and has mounted numerous exhibitions, including at the National Quilt Museum and Texas Quilt Museum. In 2019 she was named Artist of the Year by the San Antonio Art League. She has authored numerous books including the classic Complex Cloth and Art Cloth: A Guide to Surface Design on Fabric. She is noted for her book Creative Strength Training: Prompts, Exercises and Stories to Inspire Artistic Genius, and she currently facilitates a ten month Creative Strength Training community online. https://www.janedunnewold.com
