It’s been a year, and she’d going for it once again. The amazing Jennifer Brooks Owen has been hard at work creating beautiful paintings in what I’m guessing to be her best show yet. The show is this Saturday, August 4th from 5-9. Come chat with the artist, have some vino, and gaze into the world of JBO.
August is here, and it seems that summer is too! Finally. And to celebrate we have Jennifer Brooks-Owen back by popular demand. This time she comes at us with something a little different. Although I suppose we always expect something a little different from this one.
Jennifer Brooks Owen is a multi-media artist residing in Renton Wa. Her work ranges from handmade glass jewelry to multimedia paintings on paper. Jennifer has received her art degree from Oklahoma State University in illustration and was awarded the Universal Limited Art Editions (U.L.A.E.) internship in New York City. She served as an artist assistant to Elizabeth Murray, Carroll Dunham and Jane Hammond as well as master printers assistant at U.L.A.E. Jennifer moved to Renton in 2004 and has been exhibiting at Happy Delusions since 2009.
From 5-9 This Friday, August 5th come in for some wine, tasty treats, art, and meet this amazing artist. I know I’m excited to see all the new vibrant floral pieces Jennifer has been working on over the last couple of months. It’s going to be a grand time for sure, I can’t imagine a night with Mrs Brooks-Owen being anything less than fantastic! See ya there.
The 5th Annual Downtown Renton Art & Antique Walk is finally here! Tomorrow, Saturday August 28th from 11-6. This will be my first time showing my felt creations in the event. I will be in front of happy delusions along with the very talented Jennifer Brooks-Owen. DJ Corporate will be spinning beats during the festivities, and a good time is sure to be had.
