Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art presents a new body of work titled Distilled. This exhibition of non-objective abstract paintings by Jennifer Combe is hosted in the Wylder Gallery at The Square and opens to the public on Friday June 11 with a lecture by the artist at 5:30 p.m. She also offers a virtual discussion via Facebook at 6 p.m. July 20 with Curator of Exhibitions and Collections, Nicole Maria Evans.
Combe is an artist, mother, author and Associate Professor of Art at The University of Montana. “Parenting, aging, the pandemic, and joyfully falling back into abstraction led me to title this body of work ‘Distilled,’” she writes. “Parenting and full-time employment demand that we distill our priorities to the essential out of survival.””
Combe’s’ research and artistic work explore cultural constructs around gender, mothering, ability, and schooling.
