by Jamie Allen
Art Exhibit at the Honolulu Museum of Art Spalding House Café
April 24th-June 3, 2012
The Honolulu Museum of Art Spalding House Café Gallery exhibits mixed media paintings on paper by Jamie Allen. The exhibition begins on April 24th and runs through June 10, 2012. The Contemporary Café Gallery is located at the Honolulu Museum of Art Spalding House at 2411 Makiki Heights Drive in Honolulu, and is open Tuesday – Saturday from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm; Sunday 12:00 to 2:00 pm.
A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and an adjunct professor at Hawaii Pacific University, Allen combines watercolor, acrylic, paint marker, and pencil to create her dynamic environments, which are a collection of her daily encounters. She conveys this through the process of layering materials, the use of contrasts, and brief interruptions within the environments. The title of the exhibit, "Breath", references her interest in the achievement of balance within her life as well as her paintings. Allen regularly practices yoga and finds the connection between concentrating on your breath and the expression on the mat can also be found in the act of painting and drawing. The most chaotic environment can find balance and be centered which can be seen within the crowded areas in her paintings and the space found in the background and hidden areas.
Jamie Allen invites you to join her on May 6 from 2-3:30 pm at the Honolulu Museum of Art Spalding House Café for the official opening reception of the exhibit "Breath".
