Jazz – Tears and Smiles

Jazz – Tears and Smiles, is an exhibit that appeals to both jazz lovers and art collectors alike. As is the music commonly referred to as ‘jazz’, Nenkova’s latest body of work is full of range, diversity, richness and beauty. Nenkova’s pieces do more than visually captivate the viewer; through the use of vibrant colour and brushstroke, the artist’s work succeeds in not only capturing the improvisational element unique to this music genre, but also immortalizing the soulful creativity of these larger than life legends.

Other artwork on display during this show will include a spectacular smaller collection of new works by Kingston’s own renowned photographer, Bernard Clark. Celebrity Mugshots is part of Clark’s ongoing Notorious Series. The combination of these two separate portrait based bodies of work seen in conjunction with one another will offer a striking exploration of the people whose art has, and continues to, move us. We are transfixed.

Jazz – Tears and Smiles is on exhibit at Studio22 Open Gallery from Tuesday, April 23rd until Saturday, May 25th.
