GJCC art galleries will feature works of Stephenson, Pearson and Feinstein

Posted on: May 30th, 2017 by tgregory

The Gordon Jewish Community Center’s June art show exhibits will feature the work of artists Ray Stephenson, Andrea Pearson and Tamelyn Feinstein.

Stephenson, a Grammy-winning songwriter, recording artist and record producer, studied fine art in college and his paintings have focused on iconic musicians that have inspired his music. He has exhibited his work in Nashville, Las Vegas, San Francisco and Atlanta. His art hangs in the homes of Willie Nelson and Oprah Winfrey. 

Pearson moved to Nashville from Canada to pursue a music career, and started painting in water color on a whim last year during a snowstorm and has expanded to oil and acrylic. Her paintings reflect her involvement in animal rescue and dog fostering.

Feinstein is a photographer, painter and mixed-media artist specializing in self-portraiture and its intersection with the natural world. Her photos are created by layering multiple photographs and/or using filters to imbue a sense of dreaminess and surreality. Her recent foray into painting has combined her photographic eye with a painter’s brush, the result being both unexpected and engaging. 

The reception for the artists is 6:30-8:30 p.m. on June 7 at the GJCC. There will be live music by Stephenson and Pearson along with DJ Joseph Harris. Complimentary food and beverage accompany the event. The event is free and open to the public.
