Art Korner Weekly : Life in Wine Country, Enivrez Vous and Much More

Dreamy springtime landscapes, a remarkable exhibition by Jennifer Steele and the art of black and white – all in this weekly newsletter.

Featured Exhibition

Life in Wine Country” by Jennifer Steele (Steele Wilder)

Jennifer Steele (inworld : Steele Wilder) is a Canadian artist who has exhibited her works at several galleries in both RL and SL. Having been an artist almost all her life, she has studied art all over the world, from the California coast to various locations in Europe. Initially, she was a realist painter, but after years of honing her own style, she realized that capturing the emotion of the scene, or the experience of it, was a much more satisfying journey. She paints in both oil and acrylic, but prefers to combine the two, oil over acrylic.

Her latest tour, “Life in Wine Country” is showing at Lundy Art Gallery & Museum for the month of May. In this tour, Jennifer explores one of the most beautiful regions in Ontario, Canada – the Niagara region, which is also famous as Ontario’s Wine Country. Over the course of several hikes and explorations of its remarkable wineries, she explores various aspects of life in this part of the world through her expressionist work exhibited at this gallery.

Along with each work of art, visitors can also find a few lines written by Jennifer herself, telling us a bit more about that particular piece, which makes a visit to this exhibition very informational. Apart from her paintings, you will also be able to see a diverse collection of Jennifer’s RL photography ranging from images of snow-covered landscapes to close-up food shots.
