Dreaming in Color Exhibition
Every person’s mind builds images while asleep or daydreaming. This language helps us to process and communicate our thoughts and feelings. Even as our dreams are uniquely ours, they have a thread of the everyday world in them. It is this thread that allows us to recognize the common language spoken in dreams. Cloth, paint, and thread provide the perfect tools to capture the evocative nature of the dream world. Cloth, soft and familiar to us all, provides the foundation. Thread connects the layers and lies visible on the surface, and paint can highlight or shadow an image adding another layer of interest. My art work is a celebration of our connection to one another. When the separateness created by culture, society, and life disappears for a time, together we can rest in a quiet, familiar place.
Editor’s Note: Jacque’s work is currently on exhibition at the Governor French Gallery in Belleville. The Gallery is, however, on lockdown till further notice. Her “Dreaming in Color” exhibition opened to an adoring crowd of fine art enthusiasts on Friday, March 13 (see photos). The Social Distancing orders were issued in the days following that opening. Jacque’s work is visible from the sidewalk through the expanse of glass windows at Governor French Gallery, 219 West Main Street, Belleville.
