to an evening of art, conversation and refreshments on
Tuesday, November 11th from 6pm-7:30pm at the East Side Arts Council Gallery
Jacqui Rosenbush received a BA in Studio Art from the University of Minnesota, and through college and post graduation, her focus was sculpture, but later developed an appreciation for painting both in oil and acrylic. Her work is generally abstract, mixed with expressionism and impressionism. She is interested in the idea of creating “place” and playing with the idea of space within the layers and arrangement of paint and colors. Jacqui is constantly inspired and influenced by the poetic moments nature unassumingly offers, and feels that it is best to look at the cosmos and to each other to find the greatest spark of intelligent design and creativity. Her work has been shown at Altered Esthetics Gallery, Hopkins Art Center, Franklin Arts Center Resident Art Gallery, the Lakeville Art Center, and now the East Side Arts Council.
A community arts organization offering accessible, low-cost or free arts programs led by accomplished professional artists, ESAC celebrates the diversity of its neighborhood and builds appreciation of the arts.
All our programs are ADA compliant and can be adapted to suit all participants.
"To me, art is a continuous circle that is constantly changing and taking different shapes. My art is influenced by my emotions, my surroundings, and my experiences in life. It is hard to separate art from my life. Though my style has changed greatly since my earlier works, my paintings still show impressions of my heritage. I have expanded from my base of oil and acrylic painting and developed a passion for watercolor, pastel, photography, collage, batik, monoprint, ink, and woodcut prints. I love the spontaneity and freshness of watercolor and monoprints, the brightness of pastels, and the bold lines of woodcuts. Photography and inks strike me with their stark contrast of black and white and with their soft grays. Nature is my inspiration. I try to capture its beauty, energy, and patterns in my work. But the beautiful and the exotic are not my only subjects. I find beauty all around me, even in the plain and ordinary. I am also inspired by cultural aspects of life, and try to capture these in both painting and photography."
