About We Heart Art:
We Heart Art salon events blend visual and performing arts. These events are attended by NYC's most influential and culturally minded community members.
Jennifer has been painting since she was a small child, along side her father, Dale Glasgow, who is also an artist. She works in oil paint on canvas or wood. She finds inspiration for her paintings from dreams and visions she has had. She received her Bachelors degree in Media Arts and Design, with a minor in Art from James Madison University, in Virginia. She graduated early from college and moved to Los Angeles where her work was displayed in numerous galleries. She moved back to the East Coast in 2011 and currently lives and paints in New York City.
"I want to create art that steps outside the confines of religious symbolism into the realm of experience, in which a larger than life mystery can be felt regardless of the religious background of the viewer." -Jennifer Glasgow
Her paintings are graphic fabrications of aesthetic drama that are intended to resonate a continuous cycle of human energy. They are manipulations of social influence and human emotion. She places faith in the universality of all emotion enabling me to create psychological landscapes that speak directly to the viewer with the absence of language. her work conceals the organization implicated created by the mask of chaos, classified as "organized chaos".
Meghan believes we as humans command emotion though some have far superior skills in the execution and expression. As we develop into adults our opinions and ideals are formed by our influential surroundings. Through these experiences we are able to develop subconscious associations. These associations do not permit the viewer to have an opinion free from judgment, but instead allow the viewer to create a relationship through compulsion to recognize the unrecognizable. This established attainment is composed by the cacophony of assorted materials and predetermined composition.
Meghan has exhibited at Agora Gallery, Media Loft Gallery and Klimat Bar and Restaurant in 2010. She has shown over 90 pieces in PA, VA, and NY and invitations to show in Italy and Greece. Some of her work is located in the U.K., Germany,and Luxembourg.
Born in 1951 in Saugerties, the Catskills area of New York. He began painting under the tutelage of the Hungarian artist Stephan Lokos in the artist colony of Woodstock New York in 1967. Whereas Lokos’paintings are unique in his depiction of the bright light of Mexico, Risdal’s painting’s are inspired by the mystical half-light that illuminates the Catskills and Scandinavia, where his family vacationed.
Landscapes are often his subjects; his work instills the sensations of a setting, whatever the subject, with a view to maintaining the overriding purpose of his art, which is to communicate a spirit of peace and the recollection of the feeling of happiness. Through the use of techniques defined over years of work he has perfected the conveyance of that fragile moment of stability between times of intense change. Many of the mediums available to artists are used; oil, pastels and acrylics.
Neal Risdal was represented by Gallery 9 in Atlanta Georgia for a number of years. More recently his work has been displayed in solo shows at The Stockinet and LITM in Jersey city as well as the The BergenPAC. Intermezzo Art Gallery in Englewood NJ.
Adelma is a nyc-based artist. This series was painted in Rio, Tulum, Central Park and Sag Harbor.
This series is process of releasing. I bring something I am wrestling with to the canvas and it pours out in color and form, unhampered by the boundaries of language or cognition. Sometimes the issue won’t move at all, other times it leapfrogs and I simply paint a new perspective. Completely inaccessible moments ago, this perspective feels as if it was always there.
