by Candace Jean
Reception: Dec 11, 6:30pm
From fables and tales of past and present comes a collection of new work by Salt Lake City artist Candace Jean. Inspired by fictitious favorites by renown authors and illustrators, this body of mixed-media portraits encompasses the artist’s own interpretations of various characters from young-adult literature.
Candace is a local self-taught artist that grew up in a creative family, submerged in an environment that cultivated imagination and a curiosity for her surroundings. Still today a wonder of the natural world remains with a fervid fascination of flora and fauna. Her art is inspired by these things as well as an admiration for the work of great European masters, the Victorian Era, folklore, children’s fairy tales and historic fashion.
Location: Main Library, Children's Gallery
