New series Microcosm is well received

Microcosm, an exceptional new series composed of fifty 8X8 paintings, was presented at a by invitation showing in Jennifer's studio on November 7 - and virtually sold out by November 10. The series was presented in it's entirety, spanning ten feet across and five feet high, to capture and emphasize the range and diversity of this significant artistic effort. The effect was apparently so powerful that forty-four pieces were purchased in just a few days. See the series here.

Donating art to Vital Bridges

Vital Bridges is a front-runner in the war against HIV and AIDS. Vital Bridges is a multi-service, non-profit organization that provides a life-line of no cost, wrap-around services to their clients, including food, housing assistance, nutrition counseling, case management, and HIV testing and prevention. Services that help rebuild and stabilize their lives. Each year Vital Bridges serves over 2,400 individuals in the Chicagoland area through a corps of 750 volunteers and 40 trained staff members.

When Soho-Myriad, Jennifer's primary gallery in Atlanta, asked Jennifer if she would be willing to make a contribution to Vital Bridges, she responded by generously donating Echo II, a painting from the Balance Series, for auction at their upcoming "Celebrate Chicago" Holiday Brunch. This annual event will be held at The Four Seasons Hotel in Chicago on December 5, 2004 and features a delicious brunch plus exciting silent and live auctions. Tickets are available on-line
