A little about the juror. Jenny Harris has worked at The Museum of Modern Art in the Department of Painting and Sculpture since 2013, and has been a curatorial assistant since 2015. During this time, she has worked with Leah Dickerman on the exhibitions One-Way Ticket: Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series and Other Visions of the Great Movement North (2015) and Robert Rauschenberg: Among Friends (2017), for which she also organized the public program Dance Among Friends, featuring choreography by Rauschenberg’s collaborators, Trisha Brown, Merce Cunningham, and Paul Taylor. Most recently, she assisted in the installation of the collection presentation, The Long Run (2017, organized by Paulina Pobocha and Cara Manes) and is currently working on the reinstallation of the collection for the reopening of the Museum in 2019. Prior to working at MoMA, she was the Liliane Pingoud Soriano Curatorial Fellow at the Musée du Louvre, Paris. She holds a BA from Wellesley College (2012)
I feel so blessed to have my painting “Brant Rock” chosen to be exhibited in the National Juried Art Show “Color” at the Brooklyn Waterfront Artist Coalition. The juror for this exhibition is Marcela Guerrero, Assistant Curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
“In visual perception a color is almost never seen as it really is—as it physically is. This fact makes color the most relative medium in art. In order to use color effectively it is necessary to recognize that color deceives continually. Color is “passive,” “deceptive,” and “unstable,” color behaves, color is magic.” – Joseph Albers, Interaction of Color

Gallery Exhibition Dates: July 28 – August 19, 2018 weekends 1-6PM Opening Reception: Saturday, July 28, 2018 from 1-6PM
I am about to embark on a 21 day abstract painting project. I’m already in the habit of painting daily but I am going to see what I can produce on 21, 5 x 5″ panels during this time frame. These little abstract paintings will be posted daily on my Instagram feed and then be available on my new online shop.
Did you know that the common myth that it takes 21 days to form a new habit was from a misquoted saying by Maxwell Maltz? He actually said “a minimum of about 21 days” and the saying got changed to “It takes 21 days to form a new habit”.
I am really looking forward to this reception at the Bendheim Gallery in Greenwich, CT.

I’m enthralled with large paintings but there is something to be said for smaller works of art. I recall walking into a museum show where Johannes Vermeer’s “Girl with the Pearl” was on loan from the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis. I was really excited to see this iconic piece in person and was a little taken back on the dimensions of the painting. This little oil painting was breadth taking and that experience shifted my perspective on small paintings and their impact on the viewer. It was then that I started embracing the creation of small paintings.
I’ve updated my Figure Painting page to reflect these two new 8 x 8″ pieces. Here is a preview of what you can find there.
