Featured Artist at the Elko County Art Club Gallery

Featured Guest Artist for December at the Elko County Art Club
Elko County Art Club is pleased to welcome it's Featured Guest Artist exhibitor for December, Jean Hart.

Jean Hart has been creating art for the last 10 years and made the move to become a full-time artist in 2009 under her business, Jean Hart Artwork.

Hart's entree into the world of art was similar to that of many artists who discovered their creative expression through drawing. An art class at Great Basin College later introduced her to acrylic painting, her current medium of choice.

Hart's works of art seek to inspired emotions and memories from the viewer through use of contemporary and conceptual styles. "My greatest accomplishment as an artist is offering my original paintings to people," says Hart.

Being the Featured Guest Artist in the new Elko County Art Club Gallery brings her artwork full circle. Jean explains, " I started my art career in the Elko County Art Club, showing my artwork in their annual exhibits at the Northeastern Nevada Museum, and the Elko Art in the Park event."

In 2011, she became an administrator of the Art Canyon Art Gallery, which provided her with exposure to international artists and opportunity to exhibit her work in shows around the world.

In 2013, she was accepted into the National Society of Painters in Casein and Acrylic. "This really opened my eyes to painting. The ideas, theories, techniques I've learned have been crucial to my development as a painter," says Hart. When people ask why she paints, Hart tells them, " I can't imagine a life without expression."

Hart's artwork can also be seen locally at the Northeaster Nevada Museum, Picture This art Gallery, Troy Edens Medical office and on her own online store,*
