April Featured Artist: Jenie Gao

April featured artist, Jenie Gao is a multi-medium artist. This month she will be showcasing her paintings and prints.
“Jenie Gao is an artist and printmaker specializing in the mediums of woodcut and ink drawing. Her work focuses on the interdependence of preservation and change. She discusses how the objects we choose to keep and places and images we associate ourselves with act as anchor points in our families, friendships, and relationships. The desire to anchor ourselves in familiarity contrasts with the need to grow amidst inevitably variable surroundings. At the same time, a grounded sense of identity enables further growth, by creating opportunities to connect with others and change along with our environment.”
Jenie’s artwork will be showcased at Hatch April 1st-30th with an artist reception Friday, April 14th 6-9pm. Refreshments will be served.
