Featured Gallery Exhibit, This Month, Main Gallery:
LOCAL RETIRED OB-GYN DOCTOR NOW DELIVERS PAINTINGS, NOT BABIES;
‘Adventures in Color’ will be on view in ClearWater’s Main Gallery, Nov. 2, 2019- Jan. 5, 2020.
Dr. Wanda Jenkins, an Obstetrician and Gynecologist in Concord for 20+ years, took care of many women in her practice, and delivered thousands of babies. She is a native of Concord. Having painted occasionally during her professional years as an OB/Gyn., in retirement she has actively explored color and texture in landscapes, florals, and abstracts, predominantly using oil paints. She has studied with various expert artists through the years, and is inspired partly by her Grandmother’s career in painting.
Dr. Jenkins is partnering with ClearWater Arts Center & Studios, which seeks out local talent for its ‘Guest Artist’ shows. Her solo art exhibit in the Main Gallery will feature over 40 of her paintings. The show will also feature her Dichroic glass freehand jewelry sets. All works are for sale unless otherwise noted.
The public is invited to an Opening Reception, with Dr. Jenkins’ Artist Talk, on Saturday, Nov. 2, 2019 4:00-6:00 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public.
As a general rule— ClearWater Artists who are present when visitors come through - whether on 2nd Saturdays or during the week — are generally happy to engage and speak with you!
We look forward to seeing you—
