Jamie Palmer Keating - The Underwater Alphabet; from Anemone to Zebra Shark

The Mankiw Family Gallery is pleased to announce the show The Underwater Alphabet; from Anemone to Zebra Shark, comprising of prints by local artist Jamie Palmer Keating and taking place February 25th –April 25th, 2016. The opening reception with the artist will be Thursday, February 25th, 2016 from 6:00-7:00 PM. Click here to RSVP.
 
Jamie Palmer Keating is a Vermont-born artist living in Concord, MA, with a B.A. in Fine Art and a M.Ed. in Teaching Visual Arts, 5-12.  Over the past ten years, she has taught middle school and high school students, while also building her fine art business through local gallery shows, city markets, and sales through fine art retailers around New England.  Her work has recently been licensed through Greenbox Art + Culture in California and will be sold through their retailers beginning in April.

When she isn’t spending time with husband Steve, 2-year old son Wyatt, or black lab Smokejack, she is creating art in a variety of mediums. Jamie specializes in wood and linoleum block printmaking because of her love of the simplicity, beauty and meditative nature of the process.  Jamie has always been inspired by sea creatures, real or imagined, likely from growing up in a landlocked state and reading too many mythological stories about creatures of the deep. L is for Leafy Sea Dragon was the first of the 26 creatures carved to form her Underwater Alphabet; a collection of water-dwelling creatures representing each letter of the alphabet from Anemone to Zebra Shark.  Following her work on the alphabet, Jamie started getting back into woodblock carving and created Rainbow Trout, a nod to her Vermont roots and love of fly-fishing that she shares with her husband.
 
Jamie’s work has continued to grow and change as she continues to find inspiration from her family, her teaching, her Vermont roots, and any chance she gets to be by the ocean. Jamie’s prints, paintings, and drawings are meant to encourage a true sense of joy and excitement, as well as add color, fun, and inspiration to the lives of her viewers and patrons.  Part of this exhibit is to highlight Jamie’s printmaking work and digital interpretations of that work, but also to demonstrate the process of printmaking.  As an artist and art teacher, part of Jamie’s goal through this exhibit is to educate her viewers (and students) about the process of printmaking as well as to inspire a love of nature and underwater creatures!
