“If one allows the imagination to take the artist’s hand, wonderful things can happen. The canvas comes alive with meaning, not only to the artist, but to the viewer.”
Mystical Illusions Series III by Jean DunbarSat, Sep 22, 5-8pm
Órganos 19, 1/2 block off Hernández Macías
A native of Halifax, Nova Scotia, now residing in Vancouver, Canada, Jean Dunbar has pursued a lifelong love of art through a variety of mediums, from ceramic design to oil, acrylic, and watercolor painting.
Now on an extended visit to San Miguel de Allende, Dunbar will show her latest abstractions at the Bordello Galería. Her desire to attend art college as a full-time student was realized when she was accepted at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD) in 1998. She temporarily moved back to her roots to complete an exciting and successful two years of study.
Since then, Dunbar’s creative aspirations have been furthered by study under Jeanne Carbonetti of Chester, Vermont, and more recently by three previous visits to México. In 2011, she was honored to host her own show at Instituto Allende in San Miguel.
Her artistic philosophy, and the evolving manner in which she expresses herself through acrylics and watercolors, have become the foundation for Part III of the “Mystical Illusion” series. A percentage of sales will be donated to Jóvenes Adelante benefiting educational funding for San Miguel youth. Come and enjoy!
