“Canvasing Delaware,” the first Milford show from Anne Jenkins, opens with a reception Friday, October 21, from 5:00-8:00 p.m. at Jenkins’ art gallery located at 127 NW Front Street. Jenkins, the latest artist to relocate to Milford, recently opened her gallery, and has quickly immersed herself in the First State’s beauty.

 

“It might be a small state but there’s lots of diversity and grand vistas,” Jenkins said. “The thing that most surprised me is Delaware has a big sky. I really didn‘t expect that, I guess it‘s because it‘s so flat.”

 

After a few days exploring the back roads, she was inspired and impressed with the tranquility and charm of the state. Jenkins captures this spirit and big sky in paintings, large and small. Jenkins describes her style as “impasto,” which is heavily textured using a palette knife rather than a brush, or “I happily slap paint on the canvas“ she noted.

 

Jenkins, a British citizen born and raised in South Africa, also lived in six European countries for 25 years and traveled the world extensively before settling in the United States. New Orleans was Anne’s beloved adopted city for a few glorious years until Hurricane Katrina.

 

After Katrina, she owned a gallery & studio in Georgia. Jenkins was awarded the Georgia Governor’s Award of Distinction for 2008-2009. The gallery also won the 2009 Greene County, Ga., Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year award. A self-taught artist, her acrylics and watercolors can be found in many private collections in Europe, Japan, South Africa, Canada, all over the United States. Among her corporate clients are HBO and Universal Studios, Hollywood, Calif., the Ritz-Carlton at Lake Oconee, Ga.; Datacert Inc., Houston, Texas; TravelTalk Radio, San Diego, Calif., and Entergy Power Company, New Orleans, La.

 

Jenkins has shown at some of the major shows in the nation, such as Bayou City in Houston, Texas, and Norcross Art Fest and Slotin’s Art Festival in Atlanta, Ga. She participated in an invitation only show in Quebec, Canada in 2004 and spent three weeks as an artist in residence in Colorado in 2009. Her art is on display in a number of galleries in the South East.

 

“I’m just delighted to be in Milford,” Jenkins added. “There’s a wealth of art here – visual and performance. I’m excited to be surrounded by such talent!”

 

The gallery hours are Thursday-Saturday 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. The reception on Friday, 21 October from 5:00-8:00 p.m., is open to the public. Meet the artist, hear her stories and enjoy the  beautiful works of art. All the painting are for sale. For information, call (302) 393-6629 or go to her website http://annejenkinsart.com.
