The Sibylline Still Life: Art Opening this Weekend

My friend and former teaching partner Jeanne Ludeke is having a solo show at JR Kortman Gallery, in Rockford. The exhibition titled “The Sibylline Still Life: A Return to Painting” opens Friday, June 4th.

After a long absence from painting, Jeanne wanted to polish up her painting skills. She spent the last nine months challenging herself to create a painting a day and blogging about it.

Preferring to work from life, she sets up and paints from small still lifes in her studio, that often feature delicious looking food! Every painting just gets better and better. Her eye for detail, design and color makes each piece so alive and inviting.

Inspired by Jeanne’s art, locally made gourmet cupcakes will be available at the opening. Caked is a brand new company that makes all sorts of exotic and delicious cupcakes like Red Velvet, Horchata and Smores! Recently I was able to taste the Almond Twist, an almond cake filled with pudding. Heavenly!!!

Jeanne's opening reception will be from 5:30 to 9:00pm on Friday, June 4th, upstairs in the Kortman Gallery at J.R. Kortman Center for Design, 107 North Main Street, Downtown Rockford.

Admission is free!

The show runs through July 15th.
