Spring featured artist:

Jennifer Fairbanks

Jennifer Fairbanks is an artist based in Western Kentucky. Her love of nature and traditional representational oil painting are the foundation for her work. She draws inspiration from the beauty, harshness and dynamic nature of her rural environment.

Jennifer works en plein air, immersing herself in the shifting light of the Kentucky landscape and focusing on the time of sunset. She also brings the elements of the landscape indoors to create carefully studied still life paintings.

Fairbanks received her MA in Art Therapy from New York University and studied portrait and figurative painting at The Art Students League of New York and National Academy of Design. She was awarded two Hudson River Fellowships from the Grand Central Atelier and recently received the Gold Medal of Honor from the Catherine Lorillard Wolf Art Club.
