About the Event
Jeanine Taylor Folk Art is excited to present the return of Art in the Garden! The group show will feature garden themed work by Southern artists Cecel Allee, Kimberly Hodges, Lucy Hunnicutt, Bailey Jack, & Pat Juneau. Each artist will bring their own unique panache to this springtime collection. Each work of art will sit amid landscape design supplied by local woman-owned plant purveyor, Erin Schneider of Everly After Gardens.
ABOUT EVERLY AFTER GARDENS -
We’ve teamed up with local plant expert, Erin Schneider of Everly After Gardens to supply a curated selection of plants available for purchase. Along with providing knowledge and care instructions for each plant, an array of modern and eclectic vessels will be available.
CECEL ALLEE – Cecelia Allee, or Cecel had a career in finance but lost her voice during a serious surgery. As she convalesced, she decided to try painting. Having no training or expectations, she discovered that the art therapy worked its magic. As her voice came back, she contemplated returning to her finance career. With the support of her family, she decided to pursue her passion for art and has never looked back.
KIMBERLY HODGES – Equal parts whimsy, nostalgia, joyful color and pleasing patterns - Kimberly Hodges is often told that her art makes people feel happy. Beauty, joy and color seem to pulse through her enchanting designs. She views each piece as a “living portal or gateway to something deep and whole” that lives within her. Jeanine Taylor began carrying Kimberly’s open-source wood cut outs in 2020 and they have been a crowd favorite ever since.
LUCY HUNNICUTT – With bright colors and bold strokes, the images seen in Lucy Hunnicutt’s work pay homage to her Southern roots. An Alabama native, she didn’t start painting until just before turning 40. Her first efforts came out spontaneously as she painted images from a dream with leftover house paints on old scraps of cypress wood. Now, she primarily paints with acrylics on wood panels and tin.
BAILEY JACK – Bailey discovered her love for drawing as a young child when she would doodle the “Draw Me Girl” on the cover of matchbooks. Ever since then, she has always sketched at work, on the phone or any other chance she gets. Describing her work as “modern folk art,” Bailey Jack is inspired by such artists as Peter Max, Van Gogh, and Gaugin. Bailey seeks joy in painting and finds peace in letting go of the thought of sales, success, or money.
PAT JUNEAU – Pat Juneau has crafted objects of beauty in many media but once he cut and painted metal, he knew he’d found the right thing. “It was like an a-ha experience when I painted bright colors on cut out metal. Art is like writing a story. You write what you know. My metal work just keeps evolving.” Pat’s exuberant metal flowers will take center stage during Art in the Garden.
