Art from the heart

Jennifer Axinn-Weiss, the Rhinebeck artist who creates the Gourmet Giggles cartoon in Hudson Valley Connoisseur magazine, has been busy working on two shows this summer.

If you’re up in the Brattleboro, Vermont area this month or until the end of August, be sure to check out her exhibit, "Intermediaries For Mobilization" at the Gallery in the Woods … looks like some great stuff.

Jen’s work will also be on display at the Kubiak Gallery at Wilber Mansion, home of the Upper Catskill Community Council of the Arts in Oneonta. The exhibit is called "Homage To Home" and runs from August 22 through September 20.

“I paint beings who I have delegated as intermediaries between worlds, and I imbue them with magical abilities, to protect and translate forces of the natural world. They provide me with an antidote for this time, fighting the forces conspired to immobilize, helping to mobilize power,” she says. I love the colors she uses and the emotions her art evokes. If you get the opportunity – check them out for yourself!
