The Art Kettle is pleased to host Detroit artist Donna Jackson presenting “Colorful Women” in conjunction with its current exhibition, Dear Womanhouse, What Now? is up until Friday Nov 16th.
“Colorful Women” is a series of illustrations, writings, and paintings which open viewers eyes to another type of feminine beauty – beyond the curves, clothes, makeup and hair. This beauty comes from the colorful nuances of women’s personalities, emotions, and experiences. Jackson is currently developing an illustrated series of a thousand 3×3 cards, depicting women portraits, bodies and words. The small and detailed mixed media pieces create an intimate relationship between the artist and the viewer, displaying women in the only way they should be experienced; up close and personal.
Jackson develops community-based art projects and exhibitions. Founder of DMJStudio, a creative studio devoted to developing art projects that strengthen and beautify communities, she consults with libraries, galleries and artists to cultivate brand identities.
