November 4 – November 15, 2011
Palmetto Art Center (PAC), 907 5th Street West, Palmetto, Florida, 34221
On Friday evening, November 4th, from 5-9PM, Palmetto Art Center (PAC) invites the public to come see Chicken Scratch –paintings which are based on Sarasota artist Tim Jeager’s personal history as well as his desire to contribute something to the history of art.
“Until a couple years ago, I worked solely with the human figure, and throughout that time, found myself becoming more interested in the paint and what I could do with the color, application, and process, rather than the subject itself. The subject of my works became impressions, the mundane imprint of the human shape, rather than real expressions of humanity. As I searched for a new subject matter, I found myself increasingly and inexplicably painting roosters.”
Tim Jaeger is at the forefront of Sarasota’s visual arts community. A graduate of Ringling College of Art and Design, his work is featured across the country. But he’s more than an artist. Though poised with paintbrush in hand, his creative mind expands into the business and politics of our city’s visual arts. As co-founder of arts group sARTq, Jaeger works toward engaging the community and fostering new artistic partnerships.
Tim Jaeger’s solo shows Opening Reception, which coincides with Historic Downtown Palmetto’s family friendly and increasingly popular “First Friday,” is open to all. There is no admission. Select artwork, wine and soft drinks will be on sale. For those who cannot attend the opening reception, PAC Gallery is open Monday – Friday 11AM – 2PM, closed on Wednesdays. The show will continue through November 15th.
