Jens Jensen abstract art exhibit at Mendelson Gallery

Jens Jensen
: The Bear Gulch Series

Jens Jensen, a German abstract painter, created this body of work during his residency at the Djerassi Resident Artists Program in Woodside, California.

Jens paints in an improvisational manner, working quickly, he creates jewel-like paintings, alive with texture, radiant hues and dazzling surfaces. Each piece draws the viewer into its complex world.

Mendelson Gallery is pleased to present this outstanding artist to Pittsburgh. Please join us this First Friday, November 5 from 6:30 to 8:30.

Show runs through November 27

The Pittsburgh Art Blog

The Pittsburgh Art Blog features selected pittsburgh artists and upcoming exhibits with photos from the artists and galleries. since the major press outlets do not go beyond a directory listing of exhibits, blogs are needed to promote pittsburgh artists and their work. the blog also calls attention to the inferiority complex of pittsburgh art and how it's perpetuated by the major players in town. Started on August 20, 2007.pittsburgh area galleries and art venues are listed at the sister site

the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh artist advocate rick byerly,
