For May's First Friday Gallery Walk, The Venue will host an Exhibition of Paintings by two very distinctively different artists, Sven Forkjaer-Jensen of Denmark and Dan Alexander of Bloomington, USA.
Sven, who lives and works in Denmark, is a well known, mature artist who has shown his paintings throughout Europe, and in New York, California and Florida galleries. He has received many awards and prizes, and his work is found in numerous prestigious private and public collections. The Venue is pleased to host his first mid-America showing. This exhibition will feature Sven's memory landscapes and nudes.
Dan's studio is located above the Book Corner, overlooking the Courthouse Square in downtown Bloomington. Dan could not be more Bloomington. He is a young artist whose work has won him recognition in the local art community, and a recent "Best in Show Award" at the Brown County Art Guild. Dan's exhibition will feature wildlife paintings and portraits of celebrities.
This unlikely wedding of vastly different painters with different styles and different subject matter has one important thing in common, extraordinary talent.
As is our custom for Gallery Walks, The Venue will serve gourmet soup and other taste treats, from 5:00 p.m. until we run out. This will be our feature show for May.
