Jen Stark keeps rising
We haven’t heard much from camp Jen Stark since she announced her leaving Miami for L.A. And we admit we were kinda upset of the fact she was leaving, but as true fans wishing her the best. News of her new exhibit proves that the best of Jen Stark is yet to come. Her work will be part of a group exhibit entitled “40 under 40,” at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. Jen is the second youngest artist of the bunch. The youngest being Joseph Foster Ellis, b. 1984. The opening will be July 20th at 10am, with the curator’s talk at 12 noon, followed by a catalog signing. Above is a picture of one of Jen’s sculptures at the show which has talks of being acquired by the Smithsonian Institute. This would mean great exposure for Jen’s work (and thus Miami) at an international gateway that is D.C.
The show will run at the Renwick through February 2013, after which it will tour nationally at locations to be announced. You can find more information about the show and all of its artists on the show’s webpage.
