A big THANK YOU to all the LGAA members that submitted work for the Spring Show Poster. You will see them hung around the historic square and around town. The decision was difficult and we were looking for work that paired up well visually with another piece. The decision was so difficult that we are going to use TWO posters this year. Congratulations to Pam Tullos, Telise Rodelv, James Stewart and Jill Randall.

Jeanette Alexander Solo Show runs through July in Granbury

JeanetteAlexanderexhibit

Shanley House Gallery is proud to offer a special solo show of work by artist Jeanette Alexander. An accomplished local artist with many awards and solo shows to her name, Jeanette is proficient in multiple media and known for her acrylic paintings and collages. She is never at a loss for what to depict in her work and instead is overwhelmed with choices from all aspects of her life. Join us in celebrating her “inspiration overload” and thanking her for all her work in promoting the arts in Granbury. Jeanette is the Lake Granbury Art Association Volunteer of the Year for 2015. Join her for a special reception Saturday, July 9th from 6:30-8:30pm.

“Art is my soul food. Art got me through T.C.U. (BFA, painting) after a painful divorce. Art tugged at my soul during the years I fed my family as a stock broker and C.F.P. Art helped me heal from a near death illness fourteen years ago. Today, art continues to feed my soul and I am blessed to spend most of my days imagining, planning, admiring and making art.”

Even as a young girl, drawing came easy and art was a constant companion. She drew mostly people, but also sketched trees, buildings and more. Her mother enrolled her in a painting class at the then new Art Museum of Fort Worth (currently the Modern Art Museum) when she was a teenager. Bror Utter, one of the Fort Worth Circle, a widely known group of artists, prominent from 1945 through 1955, was the instructor. Jeanette continued to claim time here and there for her art through marriage and motherhood. Jeanette credits Fort Worth pastel artist, Jill Bush, for encouraging her to continue with her art. Her initial pastel painting of her first born, Michael, is featured in the show.

The yearning for more instruction led her to enroll at T.C.U. to seriously pursue an art career path, but now a single mother her path took a temporary detour. “Upon graduation, I continued as a private art teacher and independent illustrator, updating testing materials for public schools. However, my family required a more steady income. Thus, I entered the sales force selling dictation equipment, then became a stock broker and CFP and finally began my own small financial planning company.”
In 2000, remarried and with all her children educated and grown, she moved to Granbury where she commuted or telecommuted to continue her financial planning business. After a year, a bout with bad health ended her financial career, but her lifelong passion for art was what helped her recover and she has continued to produce beautiful, award-winning work ever since.

“Everyone and everything begged me to capture their likeness or spirit or design or color. It still does. Not all my creations were or are artistically worthy of displaying, but the inspiration to make more art was and continues to be endless. My solo exhibition at the Shanley House Gallery reflects my inspiration overload.”

May 9 LGAA Collage Demonstration by Jeanette Alexander

Jeanette Alexander Collage-of-Mom

Lake Granbury Art Association MEETING – MONDAY, May 9 – 7pm. LGAA Meetings are held the second Monday of each month at the Shanley House Center for the Arts at 7pm (224 North Travis in Granbury,Texas).

Don’t miss award winning local artist, Jeanette Alexander’s, demonstration on her collage techniques at the May meeting. Her ability to capture a great deal of detail using torn paper and saturated color is amazing to say the least.

She has this to say about what art means to her:
“Art is my soul food. Art got me through T.C.U. (BFA, painting) after a painful divorce. Art tugged at my soul during the years I fed my family as a stock broker and C.F.P.  Art helped me heal from a near death illness fourteen years ago. Today, art continues to feed my soul and I am blessed to spend most of my days imagining, planning, admiring and making art.”
