Jenny Long and Amy Stewart Exhibition Opens Aug 16
THE LONG GALLERY & STUDIOS ANNOUNCES EXHIBIT OPENING AUGUST 16
DUO SHOW OF TWO CONTEMPORARY FEMALE BC ARTISTS – AMY STEWART AND JENNY LONG
Jenny Long of the Long Gallery & Studios in Penticton is pleased to be hosting Vancouver contemporary artist Amy Stewart who is joining Jenny for a two person show.
This Exhibit opens August 16 and runs to September 20. The gallery will stay open late from 5-8 pm on the 16th for those who want a first peak at this exhibition.
Jenny comments, “I was taken aback when I discovered the paintings of Amy Stewart on a recent visit to the Beaumont Studios in Vancouver. It was a spiritual experience for me when I paused in the expanse of her delicate, yet powerful compositions, and reminded me of work that deeply influenced me as a young artist when viewing some of my favourite abstract expressionist painters at MOMA New York.” Jenny continues, “I am very excited to show Amy’s work at The Long Gallery, and to share some of my new works with hers in this duo show of two contemporary female BC artists.”
Amy Stewart adds, “The paintings are from my “Grounding Chaos” series, a meditation on grief. But the paintings aren’t only expressions of pain as each piece is balanced by my appreciation for the joy and strength that can emerge even in the midst of loss. Jenny Long’s paintings are not only deeply moving to me but also inspiring. I am drawn to the abstract nature of her work, while being captivated by her portraits.” www.amystewartartist.com

The Gallery, in addition to paintings, also shows artisanal wares including limited edition prints, handcrafted jewellery, handmade apparel and cards. Jenny is best known as an abstract expressionist painter and is a well known art teacher.
