Saturday Evening, January 10th from 5 to 9pm
Jennifer Tenace’s paintings have evolved over the years from expressive representational to what some would label as abstract. Drawing from her love of play and building much of her work focuses on nature and what it means to be at home. Jennifer Tenace attended the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and the Laguna College of Art and Design in Laguna Beach, CA from which she earned her fine arts degree.
The Wine Crush will be offering a selection of wines to accompany the evening.
