Artist Tina Jennings Coming to Fontana
Fontana, California – The Mayor and City Council invite the public to visit the Art Depot Gallery to see the abstract artwork of Tina Jennings.
Jennings’ artwork is on display from April 5 to May 20 at the Gallery. Her art is abstract and evocative, using jarring shapes and colors to create images that elicit emotions and ideas that words can’t convey. She uses many different materials to create her works, though acrylic paint and resin are her favored mediums.
Jennings creates her paintings in an almost meditative state, allowing her to perceive things in a way that is outside her normal reach. “Experiencing that which is not seen with the natural eye is something I continue to pursue and passionately desire,” she said. “From the inception of a work to its completion, the physical activity [of creating art] seems almost ritualistic and repetitive since my whole being is fully engaged in the process.”
There will be an artist’s showcase for Jennings and her work on May 5 during the Art Depot’s Fusion Friday. At the showcase, Jennings will answer questions and discuss her art with the public.
The Art Depot Gallery is located at 16822 Spring St. and is free and open Tuesdays through Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Fridays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. To learn more about this exhibit or other Art Depot events and programs, please visit arts.fontana.org or call (909) 349-6975.
