Jacque Ferretti is an abstract painter, resident of Philadelphia and full member of 3rd Street Gallery. Her work is inspired by the urban environment and by the city’s rich tapestry of history and diversity. Images captured from the street are chosen due to an emotion, sense of fragility, or remembrance deeply felt. In her studio, she creates her understanding of whatever that connection may be and using oils and mixed-media, she allows a story to unfold.
In her exhibition, Bella and Sharkey: Reflections of the Past she comes full-circle back to her Philadelphia roots, using oils, mixed media and found objects to create works that express her connection with her grandparents, Bella and Sharkey, whose tailor shop and home in the city were recently torn to the ground. Her work is also available online at her website www.jacqueferretti.com.
Artist Reception: Sunday Dec. 3, 1-4pm
