Forthcoming Goldmark exhibition 2020

Jenny has recently been invited by the Goldmark Gallery to have a solo exhibition to celebrate her 70th year in October 2020. She has set herself the task of completing 70 paintings for the occasion. She has a few in stock already so not quite as tough as it sounds!

This is Jenny’s studio wall in March. She has been experimenting with painted paper collages using still life drawings done thirty years ago as source material. John’s pots have made an appearance too.

Jenny has made a new film about her life and work with her filmmaker son, Alex J. Wright, this year. You can find it on the Home page.

It is called Keeping an Eye Open and contains footage of her working in her studio and on location. She talks about her influences, her sources of inspiration, some of her unique mixed media methods and her thoughts on the joys and trials of being a painter.

A Painter’s Progress July 10th – September 26th 2010

Jenny had a two venue exhibition in Leicester, her home city, entitled “A Painter’s Progress’’ at the New Walk Museum and Art Gallery and at the Attenborough Arts Centre (previously Embrace Arts) at Leicester University.

The exhibition at New Walk Museum featured a body of work made by Jenny in response to paintings in its permanent collection and completed during her 18 month residency there 2008/10.

It included pieces inspired by several different artists including Peter Doig, Harold Gilman, Kathe Kollwitz and Evelyn Williams. The works of the four artists listed were also on show.

The studies and working sketches were on display as if on the wall of her studio , alongside 18 of her finished pieces.

At the Attenborough Arts Centre, Leicester University, there was a retrospective exhibition showing her development as an artist over 35 years. Works were borrowed back from public and private collections, including a collection of celebratory cards sent to friends and family over the years.

A film, "A Painter's Progress", was made especially for the exhibition by Alex J. Wright, Jenny’s son.

“In my opinion this is some of the most inspiring artwork exhibited in Leicester for quite some time. Jenny Grevatte is always in complete control of her materials, with stunning results.” – Leslie GoodwinArt Critic of the Leicester Mercury July 29th 2010
