‘SCENE IN PASS­ING:’ KIRK­PATRICK’S LOOK AT HER HOME­TOWN

Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - ARTS - STAFF RE­PORT

A re­cep­tion Fri­day night, Dec. 7, at In-Town Gallery will open Jen­nie Kirk­patrick’s show, “Scene in Pass­ing: An Artist Views Chat­tanooga.”

The re­cep­tion will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. at the gallery, 26-A Fra­zier Ave.

Hav­ing trav­eled to many places around the world, Kirk­patrick uses t hose ex­pe­ri­ences to ex­am­ine her home­town. From the West Vil­lage to Coolidge Park and the Chat­tanooga Theatre Cen­tre, Kirk­patrick looks at her city with an eye at­tuned to the magic of ev­ery­day mo­ments.

Kirk­patrick, who works in wa­ter­color and acrylic, has a fine arts de­gree in paint­ing from UTC and a Master of Fine Arts in graph­ics/ print­mak­ing from Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton Univer­sity. She has taught draw­ing, design, art his­tory and art ap­pre­ci­a­tion at UTC, Cleve­land State Com­mu­nity Col­lege and Ten­nessee Wes­leyan Col­lege.

The idea for “Scene in Pass­ing” arose dur­ing a week­end spent with two for­mer col­lege room­mates.

“Play­ing tourist in my own city, I found my­self look­ing at Chat­tanooga with the same artist’s eye I’ve brought to cities and places all over the globe. I sup­pose it’s not sur­pris­ing that many of the paint­ings in this show are from that week­end,” says the artist.

“Scene in Pass­ing” will re­main on dis­play through Dec. 31. For more in­for­ma­tion: 423-267-9214.
