Opening reception Friday, November 4, 5 to 7 pm, Elaine Jacob Foyer, exhibit remains through Saturday, November 19. The world as interpreted by Bay Area artist Jeanie Dooha.
Bay Area artist Jeanie Dooha’s exhibit of visual stories are expressed through watercolor, acrylic painting, fabric collage, photography, mixed media constructions and mobiles created with nature and found objects.
Ever the searcher, observer and listener, Jeanie draws her inspiration and strength from decades as a mother, partner, friend, teacher, counselor, artist, dancer, reader, music maker, traveler, cat companion, social worker and activist — all of which informs her work about connection and communion. The world as interpreted by Dooha: wrinkled skin nuzzles silken fur. Father and daughter tenderly embrace. Golden, sienna and ebony fingers strum, tap and plunk upon strings, drum heads and keys – creating in unison or in alternating tones music to soothe and to stimulate. Bodies swing and sway rhythmically swirling toward, away from and around one another. Eyes meet; arms embrace shoulders; voices harmonize or dialogue in call and response. Bodies ache, sweat and release; voices grunt, sigh and soar as people work and play together; building, bonding, repairing, reaching, renewing – connection, communion.
