Invitational Small Group Show – Natural Forms
Featuring the work of Jean Cohn, Scott Ross and Kristen Tinari

Kristen Tinari always had a strong interest for color and discovery of her physical surroundings.  This drew her to express herself through painting from a young age. Throughout her studies towards her BFA at the University of Delaware, she worked with a variety of mixed medias and explored the physical application of paint.  A specific project, the macro vs. micro sparked Kristen’s interest in the cellular form and the research behind it.  Intrigued by this topic, specifically autoimmune diseases, she explores it in various forms of painting.  Her work has been in group exhibitions in Wilmington, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, and LI.  She was the recipient of the Lynn Sharp Award at the University of Delaware in 2013.

Jean Cohn developed a love for art at a young age. She graduated from The School of Visual Arts with a BFA and started a career in graphic design. In 2010, Jean started a Masters in the Art of Teaching at Queens College. She started teaching in Yonkers, encouraging young artists to explore various painting techniques, she used her samples to create weavings. Creating a variety of her own techniques in a variety of colors and cutting the work into strips, her beautiful textured watercolor weaving has been inspiring to both her teaching and students.

Scott Ross is a self-taught photographer as well as a self-employed portrait and event photographer since 1975. I love fine art photography, especially the female form.

The Huntington Arts Council offers various Invitational Opportunities to exhibit and showcase our artist membership. Through pop-up opportunities with various community partners and 2 small group exhibition slots available in our gallery each year, we aim to help our artist members share their talents with the community. Interested artist members are required to submit a unified body of work as part of the application to HAC for review. The council is responsible for selecting the individual artists or a combination of artists to exhibit. Invitational opportunities are open to current HAC artist members or you may register as a member upon acceptance into an Invitational Show. For more information contact Emily Dowd at grants4arts@huntingtonarts.org.

Exhibition Date: April 16 – May 29, 2021
