|Jeanette Ross and Nancy Brannon
|All the Crayons in the Box
By Lynda Macaluso
Rarely does the work of two artists working in radically different media combine to create such a unified and beautiful exhibit. Jeanette Ross is primarily a painter and Nancy Brannon is a quilter. But to describe the art of these two women in such simple terms is not indicative of their uniqueness, or of the ways in which their pieces compliment each other.
Jeanette Ross, aka Pink Earth, says that she is “fascinated with creatures great and small, and bringing them to life on canvas with uninhibited color is exciting”. She accentuates colors that most people just do not see, creating watercolors and acrylics that stand apart because of their bold vibrant color. Her choice of palette and the way she expresses both her sense of humor and her love of God’s creation blend in her art to make Pink Earth’s work readily identifiable. The paintings glow with a winning radiance.
Nancy Brannon is currently focusing on art quilts, using today’s rich and inspiring fabrics with their dramatic colors and textures. She may add beads, paints, dyes, photo prints, shells, threads, metals, feathers, or whatever else comes to mind. The finished pieces are certainly not anything like your grandmother’s quilt, but share the same emphasis on creating a thing of beauty with fabric. Nancy has worked with fabric her entire life, growing up with an Amish grandmother and traditional quilting. She has done commissioned pieces, restorations of old quilts, and replicas of old quilts. Brannon also specializes in liturgical art, producing custom church banners and vestments.
This exhibit is a delight. It will hang in the MACK for the month of October. Stop in and treat yourself to an exciting visual experience
