JASPER — The Krempp Gallery at the Jasper Arts Center presents “Fascinating Faces” and “Hoard Couture,” work by Ohio resident Judi Krew this month.
Krew has been a working artist for more than 32 years. Based in her Canton studio, Krew’s “Snarky Art” showcases her vibrant and humorous acrylic paintings. She holds a bachelor’s degree in painting and drawing from the University of Akron and a master’s of art education from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. She has taught at the Cleveland Museum of Art and Bay High School in Bay Village, Ohio, and has been a community volunteer.
Selections from “Fascinating Faces” and “Hoard Couture” are part of two ongoing series. “Fascinating Faces from Interesting Places” is a series of oversized soft pastel portraits based on photographs taken when people are unaware of the camera so as to capture momentary expressions. Krew strives to capture the humanity within each person and not the “photo smile” people put on their face when a camera is near. “House of Hoard: A Collector’s Collection of Hoard Couture” explores Krew’s need to hold onto things as a way to preserve memories.
The exhibit includes a First Thursday reception at Krempp Gallery from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, featuring a gallery discussion on “Fascinating Faces” at 6 p.m.
The Krempp Gallery, located in the Jasper Arts Center adjacent to the Vincennes University Jasper Campus, is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, until 7 p.m. Thursdays and from noon to 3 p.m. Sundays. School groups, clubs and students are welcome. Admission is free.
For more information, call the arts center at 482-3070.
