A Collection of Paintings by Jann Pollard for Karen Brown Guides
Feb 5 – Apr 14, 2013
Karen Brown’s Travel Guides are recognized as the most personable and reliable guides to the Inns and Bed and Breakfasts of Europe, United States and Mexico. For many travelers Filoli has been a destination while visiting California and we hope to encourage our visitors to experience new exciting places through this beautiful exhibit. As the cover artist for the Karen Brown Travel Guides, Jann Pollard has completed 138 beautiful paintings of inspiring destinations. This special exhibit will display 54 of those paintings, enabling our visitors to travel the globe, purchase a painting of their favorite destination or one they wish to visit and be inspired to see new places. This is a very special opportunity, exclusively made to Filoli, it’s visitors and members. (Filoli is a National Trust Garden in Woodside, near San Francisco.) More details to follow.
For those in North Carolina, don’t miss that I was one of 12 artist’s selected for Providence Gallery’s Holiday Show in Charlotte. My artwork was featured on their advertising. View the artwork on this 2012 Artwork Collection.
Attached are a few photos from my featured work in the Providence Gallery in Charlotte, NC. You can also click here to see some of the paintings in the show.
Golden Paints has put online color images of many of its paints and have created a way to visually see what happens when you mix 2 or 3 together in various proportions. I could spend a good part of my day here, playing and learning about color.
For students and others, too, there is a great little exercise online about testing your vision of colors and values. Give it a try – it’s fun!
