On Sunday March 6th, the art of Jennifer Verge and Stephanie Visser will be featured in two solo exhibitions at the Edgemar Center for the Arts in Santa Monica. Verge’s exhibition “Believe in the Magic” will showcase her mixed media works on wood. Visser’s exhibition entitled “Rhapsody in Blu” will feature her abstract paintings.
Verge currently resides in Los Angeles but originally hails from Canada. Her family was her early inspiration, encouraging her to work with wood. Her teachers also pushed her to thinks outside the box. Verge will be showing roughly ten works created from wood with local found objects used throughout the works.
Just as most artists work in series, Verge has been busy with a new collection. She has been painting nudes and receiving an amazing response. She is also a talented jewelry designer and has a new business brewing. “Within a couple of months I will be launching my new Tee shirt line.”
Verge has recently exhibited at the LA Art Show, Gabba Gallery, Santa Monica Art Studios, and many more Los Angeles Galleries. For more information about the artist Jennifer Verge, visit her website.
Stephanie Visser is known for her abstract paintings. She moved to Los Angeles from Michigan to continue to pursue her creative endeavors. Visser also showed her work at the recent LA Art Show. She has exhibited her paintings at bG Gallery, Wallspace, TAG Gallery, Santa Monica Studios etc.
When asked how often she paints? Visser replied, “As much and as often as I can…that’s vague I know, but it does change from week to week depending on other things going on in my life.” As an artist she said, she tries to establish a routine (so she can create on a consistent basis) that is supportive and will work for her. “I have a new studio in Beverly Hills and since it’s closer to where I live, I am able to go even if only for a couple of hours. Heaven would be every day.”To find out more about the art of Stephanie Visser, visit her website.
