Event Details

The Lamorinda Arts Council invites you to view virtual and in person exhibit titled “Day Dreams” of the artwork of Carol Jenkins during the month of October. Join us for the opening reception Sunday October 3rd at 2:30-4:30 pm. Jenkins has been a professional artist for 15 years. “My fascination with paint grew slowly. I longed to learn a visual language, to be creative without words. So I started to take painting workshops, one after the other. I joined critique groups and rented a studio. It was a steep learning curve—it still is, but I was driven to learn. Very quickly I realized that I wanted to paint what I  loved: the colors, the movement, and the textures of wild terrain. Some of my favorite artists are abstract  painters: Richard Diebenkorn, Joan Mitchell and Wolf Kahn,” said Jenkins. As far as process, she begins with spontaneous mark-making, then the laying on of bold shapes, followed by layers of acrylic or oil paint that she draws into and scrapes away. Once an interesting line or color pulls the painting in a direction she wants to follow, she builds the layers more deliberately into a composition. This year she was awarded second place in the West Coast Biennial at Turtle Bay by David Pagel, art critic for the Los Angeles Times and a cash prize.
