SUU to welcome artist Jenedy Paige to present on her artwork Thursday, March 7, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. in the SUU Auditorium as the latest in the Art Insights series.
In addition to her Art Insights presentation, Paige’s work is also currently showing at the Southern Utah Museum of Art. Twelve of her paintings are on display, including six brand new pieces from this year.
She obtained a BFA from BYU-I and has painted just about every day for the past 13 years, which has been a great challenge as she has also been a mother to three boys and one girl.
Paige believes art is more than just a pretty picture, but a means by which to share a powerful message. She is constantly drawn back to her easel in hopes of perfecting her craft and bringing light into the lives of others. Jenedy has sold paintings to clients all over the U.S. and in several countries.
She has exhibited her work at the LDS Museum of Church History and Art, the Springville Museum of Art, the Meyer Gallery, the Salmagundi Club, and the Oil Painters of America National Exhibition.
Paige also recently won an honorable mention in The Artist’s Magazine’s figure painting competition and was featured in Fine Art Connoisseur.
Paige said, “I’m so excited to come speak to the students and art community at SUU. I’m basically the product of a good art education. Every artistic skill set I have was taught to me by someone else. What a treat then to pay it forward and share what I have learned with others. Nothing brings me more joy than to know I can help someone start a little further down the road than I did, and thus reach further than I will reach. I also hope to share with the students the importance of persistence and work ethic, and my belief that if you really want something, and you’re willing to put in the effort, you can have whatever you want.”
