The Making of Landscapes, Jacqui Lewnes' solo show

Jacqui Lewnes Stands in front of one of New Grounds' presses in preparation for her demonstration.
I am not alone in saying that I am very proud of Jacqui and admire her as an artist and as a person. Jacqui overcame many hardships with grace, perseverance, and a great sense of humor while creating beautiful, ethereal, and emotional monotype landscapes of New Mexico for her solo show this month at New Grounds.

Jacqui gives us a "serious and thoughtful" pose in front of two of her pieces. A great example of her playful personality.

Selfie time! Gallery Assitant Tanya, myself, and Jacqui take a quick photo together during the show.

In additon to Jacqui's show David Welch and his wife Cynthia Winster had a spectacular show in the Matrix gallery. David (in purple) speaks with a student and her parent in the front studio in New Grounds.
