Jennifer studied business in college, because what the heck can you do with a degree in Fine Arts? Okay, okay, you kibitzers, I hear your objections to that blanket statement. But studies show that the two degree choices most likely to end in retail hourly work are Fine Arts and Anthropology. (I feel this keenly. My undergrad degree was Anthropology with a Fine Arts minor. Jeez!)

But back to J. Spradlin. She loves abstract art and takes inspiration from both Georgia O’Keefe and Ansel Adams. She’s a reality bender, taking an image and selectively PhotoShopping its brains out. She simplifies. She complicates. She abstracts. Beginning with an image of a real scene or object, she instills her own artistic sensibilities and the result is — magical? Amazing? Startling? Come decide for yourself!

After a lifetime batting words around like shuttlecocks in an endless game of badminton, it is a pleasure to use them to promote Old Town and my fellow artists at Amapola Gallery. –Kristin Parrott, carver, painter and acorn stuffer
