Memory / Spaces

A good friend of mine is exhibiting work at the Kerrytown Concert House till August. Jordan Pemberton, a Tecumseh raised and MICA trained artist, is showing her work Memory / Spaces. From the Facebook event: 
Working in oil paint, watercolor and a range of drawing materials, Pemberton uses art as a way to remember, re-imagine and recreate places from her childhood, early memories, family stories and dreams. Inspired by the uncertainty and instability of memory, Pemberton incorporates the visual language of architecture, iconography and monumentality into her work. While much of Pemberton's art is large, colorful and visually dense, Memory / Spaces focuses on the artist's smaller, quieter studies. The drawings and paintings in this exhibition depict various places in Michigan, Pemberton's childhood home.
Since high school I have been able to cite her as one of the most talented people I know. She was a presidential scholar finalist, and her work is sophisticated beyond her age. The reception is tomorrow from 5:00-7:00 pm at the concert house. See her work before "art fair" blurs your judgment.
