a pop up exhibit featuring works by Jed Williams, Dennis Flynn and Catherine Mauger
This Saturday, come check out a sampling of Jed Williams’ less well known work and work by Catherine Mauger and Dennis Flynn. After having gone through a period of restructuring and construction issues, JWG is proud to present some of Jed’s work as well as that of 2 other artists ,in a casual early afternoon setting. On display will be some of Jed's semi abstract compositions and also some of his abstracts on black background that he created by drips and splatters of his trademark dayglo acrylic paint handling. Also on display will be several still lives by Jed including some done in watercolor, a medium Jed rarely uses.
Dennis John Flynn grew up in Warminster, PA. where he was encouraged to express himself through painting. When entering Tyler School of Art his works were already being influenced by Monet, for his use of color, The Hudson Valley School painters, for their use of light, Duchamp, for movement, and Pollock for freedom and order in chaos. While in his twenties Dennis John moved to New Hope, PA, an “artist community” and painted, exhibited and laid the foundation for his unique style and perspective. Currently his works are being defined by four (4) different categories: “Pop Art/Warhol”, “Half tone/Lichtenstein”, “Collage/ Rauschenberg and “Minimalism /Rothko”.

jewelry by Catherine Mauger
“I have been learning enamel with a jeweler friend and have enjoyed playing with colors. The earrings shown at JWG are the result of my experiments. I have worked for many years with sterling silver, gold, copper and acrylic, fabricating or using the lost wax process, and often mixing all these materials in one piece of jewelry.I have shown my work in galleries in New York and Paris.
Here, probably because I so wanted Spring to come, I have been using powdered glass of various colors over simple shapes cut in fine silver plate (also, rarely, copper plate). The glass melts in the hight heat of the kiln and the colors change. Piecescan be re-fired with added layers of colors, creating new shades.
As I do in my work and my life in general, I welcome the accidents and surprises that often happen.”--C.Mauger
