Jill McLennan: Glimmer in the Grit

September 2012

"Real Eyes" (2012) found objects, acryli, photos and rocks on wood structure, 5 x 1 x 4.5 inches

Observing daily life in Oakland,  Jill McLennan layers her personal experience onto her colorful scenes of urban habitat. She documents the pleasure, pain, beauty, destruction, dilapidation and restoration of the city in her images. As an educator, activist and artist she imbues these records with her own questions as she strives for answers in this complicated world of colliding and collaborating cultures, natures and futures.

Artist’s Reception: Saturday, September 15th from 4-6pm
