Janine Dunn Wade: The Intention behind the Freedom
Janine Dunn Wade is known for her beautiful floral still lifes. One critic described her free brushstrokes as “confident.” They look effortless. But there’s more behind the works than meets the eye. These beauties don’t just happen. Wade puts a lot of thought into the still life composition. She makes color studies and has palettes she’s developed over time. She studies other artists. And, of course, she’s worked for many years on her art. All of that goes into the making of those seemingly improvised floral still lifes that are so joyful.
Join us March 13 when Wade invites us into her studio to delve deeply into her process.
Janine Dunn Wade has exhibited widely, including at the Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie and Woodmere Art Museum. She’s been participating regularly in the Phillips’ Mill Juried Art Show since 1995, winning several awards. Wade earned a BFA from Villanova. She’s studied in Siena, Italy, Paris and Guanajuato, Mexico, as well as in PAFA Master Classes.
