Meet Hyattsville-based artist, J’Nell Jordan, at a free reception in the lobby of the Publick Playhouse. Jordan paints with oil on top of metallic acrylics using a subtractive fashion of painting, where she wipes away, etches into and press against the top layers of oil paint to layers underneath. Lighting plays big part in her work because it interacts with the metallic colors to reveal different intricacies and patterns from certain angles. Her work often depicts festive environments, capturing people in "feel good" moments; those moments where figures are caught in the vibe of the music, posing, flirting or caught mid-smile.
The exhibition runs January 13 through March 19, 2017.
