Artist Jennifer Bernard to Debut Latest Painting in Prestigious NYC Art Show

September 17, 2003---J.Bernard's provocative new oil painting titled "Emerge" was juried out of hundreds of applicants this year to participate in the Annual show, sponsored by the Society for Art of the Imagination, based in London.

The much anticipated show opens Sept. 20, and will include such notable artists as the late Salvador Dali, Ernst Fuchs, and H.R. Giger, one of the world's foremost artists of Fantastic Realism and Academy Award winner for the designs of the title character and its otherworldly environment in the film “Alien”.

The opening ceremonies will be followed by a grand surrealist costume ball and awards ceremony, broadcast live via the internet worldwide. The artist says it's a great honor to be a part of the exciting exhibition.

The artist started her professional career as a commercial illustrator, working out of her current studio & home in Altus,OK. As her work evolved, the artist then moved into the fine arts, focusing on personal creations.

The artist says people are often surprised to find her living in the small town of Altus, and usually ask why she doesn't live in a large city such as Los Angeles, New York, or Chicago. She says for her the choice is easy, she has lived in many large cities and prefers the less crowded, more relaxed atmosphere of a small town, adding that being near family is very important also.

Bernard is best known for her wildly imaginative, often surreal oil paintings. Considered a rising star by many in the art world, Bernard's artwork continues to grow in popularity, delighting viewers worldwide, and collectors from all walks of life. The artist has quickly developed a devoted collector base of her unique work. The artist's work is now collected both Nationally & Internationally.

The artist says she is always evolving, and exploring new ideas, and has recently started sculpting- basing the sculptures on some of her paintings. Bernard exhibits her artwork via the internet on her official web site, where special projects she is working on are also documented & shared with visitors.

Bernard states that she will continue working towards raising awareness of the arts, particularly in her local area,because it is important for the community. She hopes that learning about artists living in her town or the surrounding areas can be a point of pride for residents, encouraging them to explore their own creativity and fostering an interest in artistic or cultural events that happen locally.
