FREE Quilt Painting Demo at the Athenaeum!

Saturday, February 22, 2020

Jennifer Dorgan is the February artist in the Jasper Rand Art Museum in the Westfield Athenaeum. Her show includes acrylics, oils, colored pencil and fabric. She has been painting since she was a child but became serious about it in high school. Dorgan says, "I believe art is so necessary for all of our collective minds. It is an absolute must for growing children to be exposed to and an outlet for stress relief for all adults, no matter their skill level. I firmly believe practicing art is for everyone, especially for those who don't consider themselves "artists". " Her newest medium is 'painting' with fabric! Thanks to one of her students, Eileen Doherty, who introduced her to quilt painting- she's hooked! On Saturday, 2/22 Eileen Doherty and Jennifer Dorgan will run a free quilt painting demo at the Athenaeum. They will show you how to turn a fabric collage into a piece that looks like a painting!
