2 Paintings in next edition of INPA 8 from Manifest Gallery

I am proud and honored to be included in the next edition of INPA 8 from Manifest Gallery. This publication houses the best emerging and established painters from an international radius. To see a previous edition and link to the site click here.

As the results stand now, the 8th International Painting Annual will include 101 works by 59 artists from, at a rough count, approximately six countries. Obviously our jury efforts are quite intense in order to refine so many entries down to such a concise selection. 

Please help me celebrate this achievement when the publication comes out in print. A link to purchase and inquire will be forthcoming. 

Special thank you to all jurors, staff and those involved with making this publication and opportunity happen!

Upcoming Solo Show "Constructions"

Getting ready for my upcoming solo show at BAYarts. 
Opening March 9 7-9pm
March 9 - April 6

This recent body of paintings, an assemblage and a site-specific installation show a cross-section of works by artist, Jenniffer Omaitz. This is the first major show where Omaitz is building a body of work that is both 2D and 3D for a specific space. 

Omaitz brings together ideas of architecture, geometry, painterly abstraction and site specificity to this current collection of work.

While her paintings often rely on a constructed viewpoint to interior and exterior spaces, these are balanced by the installtion. Spaces both real and imagined; dualities, boundaries, and new experiences become compounded authentic experience. Energy from both practices reveal a depth of investigation for ongoing interrelationships between order and chaos as they fluctuate between environment and dimension.

3rd Biennial Painting Exhibition

At some point many generations ago society reached a level where ordinary people could spend a lifetime perfecting their ability to mix and apply paint, in extraordinary ways. Manifest established FRESH PAINT as a permanent biennial project in 2013 to inaugurate our expanded gallery. FRESH PAINT 2017 is the third biennial presentation of this international survey of contemporary painting.
FRESH PAINT joins Drawn as a recurring gallery exhibition designed to complement our annual INDA and INPA (drawing and painting) publications. Every two years it launches our exhibition season by presenting a competitive group exhibition focused exclusively on painting.
For this exhibit 116 artists from 22 states, Canada, China, England, France, Indonesia, and Ireland submitted 362 works. Eighteen works by the following 17 artists from 15 states were selected by a blind jury process for presentation in the gallery and the Manifest Exhibition Annual publication.
