Celtic Kaleidoscope gallery opening with artist Jeanine Malec

April 18, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Artwork by Jeanine Malek

Free. Celebrating designs from historical sources such as Newgrange, the Book of Kells, and traditional Celtic ornament, this series offers whimsical interpretations of Spiral and Knot patterns in the round. Each piece weaves together ancient formal conventions with a modern color palette to produce a kaleidoscope of Celtic patterns. Kids can enjoy the fun by coloring these patterns with Jeanine at the opening!

Jeanine Malec has been an active participant in the Twin Cities art community for over 20 years. She works under the moniker Nest and Tessellate to create contemporary folk art informed by her Celtic, Scandi and Slavic roots. She attended the College of Visual Arts in St. Paul and holds an MFA in Ecological Architecture from Vesper College. Her practice explores symbolism, pattern language and seasonal crafts derived from historic folkways. She seeks to connect with ancestral art forms, reimagine traditional folk charms and build relationships within the community around these interests.

This new artwork by CJAC instructor and artist, Jeanine Malec, will adorn the walls of our lobby gallery.
This event is part of Irish Arts Week.
