#ArtWalk – Friday February 7th 5.30-8.30pm
Artist appearance – Potter, Worley Faver and Painter, Claire J Kendrick will be exhibiting in this two person show at the Pop Up Studio, located 212c Charlotte Street to meet visitors and talk about their work.
Plum Gallery – Group Show 10 Aviles Street.

“It is my practice to always work with reference. I like to buy fresh flowers and set up the arrangement and start with a strong composition. This is always my foundation. As I begin painting, each brush stroke has to say something. Putting down a mark and deciding to keep or remove, I try to ask myself if this mark adds something to the painting. The results are dynamic, energetic forms–they show the energy you put into the painting. The still life floral paintings have a life and vitality.”

This is a process of constant editing, painting, taking away then reapplying paint or wax, building the image slowly in layers.

“You should paint as you live life; expression should be in your work. See the things of beauty you enjoy and fill your life with that energy.”

Large Scale Art Work Progression Video 1

Artist Claire Jane Kendrick shares her process when approaching large scale fine art painting.

www.cjk-studio.com

So it’s time to unveil a massive commission painting I have been working on, usually paintings go straight into the home or office of the collector. This time the collectors and gallery have very kindly agreed to exhibit the painting so that it can be showcased and seen by friends and collectors of Art on Centre Gallery.


This is really a unique opportunity and so there will be no preview of the artwork – until the collector and friends have had a chance to see it first.  – You simply must visit the gallery to see it in person!


The magnificent 12ft x 6.5ft Marsh Painting “Joyful Heart” is one of the largest private home installations we are delighted to have the opportunity to share with you before it leaves the gallery for  its new home.


Opening Night – Saturday, 14th September, 2019 – exhibiting for 4 weeks!
Location – Art on Centre, Centre Street Fernandina, Florida Keep in touch following the exhibition, if you are interested in seeing the process of this commission, sketches and time delay video will show how I approach this type of large scale work – privacy of collectors and painting location are always respected.

Large Scale Dynamic Landscapes in Oil Paint

Expressive Contemporary Landscapes by Claire J Kendrick showing at Plum Gallery.
Art Walk (St. Augustine) – Late Night Opening 1st Friday of Every Month.

Working in Oil and Wax the matte texture of Kendricks landscape paintings show the energy and brushwork of the artist. Modern interpretations of the Marshlands north of St. Augustine, are inspiration for Kendrick who lives and works on Vilano  Beach. Pushing the boundary of what is traditionally expected in Landscape painting Kendricks paintings are recognizable but she takes artistic license with color, building layers of paint, overlapping tones and textures in oil paint mixed with a wax medium giving her work a signature style.

See this body of work exhibiting at Plum Gallery until January 22nd, 2018.

PLEIN AIR ARTISTS CAPTURE THE BEAUTY OF ST. AUGUSTINE

St. Augustine, FL (Apr 28) – This weekend marks the home stretch of the citywide ST. AUGUSTINE PLEIN AIR PAINT OUT, hosted by the St. Augustine Art Association. For almost two weeks, more than 50 artists from the Southeast have been creating paintings that reflect the architectural beauty of St. Augustine.

From dawn to midnight, passersby have found artists on location in and around the downtown area, off the beaten path in Lincolnville, in the Flagler Model Land Co. Neighborhood, at the Castillo de San Marcos, along the bay front and in far-flung parts of the city.

Selected works produced during the Paint Out will be featured in a juried exhibition entitled, “Gilded: Impressions of the Flagler Era,” May 5 thru 28, at the St. Augustine Art Association, 22 Marine Street.  Awards amounting to $2,500, including a $1,000 Best in Show prize will be announced May 7, at a  closing concert reception “Arias & Accolades,” featuring the First Coast Opera.

“This has been an incredible experience for the artists and our city,” said Elyse Brady, STAAA Executive Director.  “These talented and tenacious artists are continuing a legacy of working on location here that dates back centuries and their beautiful paintings reflect a genuine sense of joy and pride.”

In addition to their field work, artists attended numerous activities, including a painting demonstration by PBS Painting and Travel host, Roger Bansemer,a framing talk by Dan Hubley of St. Augustine Framing, an Art & Architecture Walking Tour led by Melissa Stuart and other presentations.  The event was made possible through a JoAnn Crisp-Ellert grant from the Community Foundation of Northeast Florida.

To view photos of the St. Augustine Plein Air Paint Out, log on to the staaa.org Facebook page.  Or better yet, take a walk around town and see the artists in action at their easels.

For more information, call the St. Augustine Art Association at (904) 824-2310.

Here is a chance to see inside the studio of CJK – this short video shows her artistic process.

Her technique is shown from working sketch to application of light washes in oil paint to heavy layers of oil and wax melted outside using a blow torch.
