The Janet Levine March Gallery will feature the work of Lauren Karp. Lauren is a nature photographer who specializes in artistic wildlife photos. Raised in the bucolic countryside of Pennsylvania, Lauren spent her childhood in lush fields, meandering creeks and scenic farmlands. Amid this backdrop, she pursued many forms of creative expression including painting, calligraphy and clothing design. Her artistic journey continued as an art director for an international print and poster company. Having been inspired by world-renowned photographers, she combined her love of art and nature with a passion for photography. Exploring with her camera at her side, Lauren now travels extensively, capturing her vision of the beauty in the natural world. Her images capture a snapshot in time, giving viewers a quiet moment of emotive contemplation.
The JLMG2 Gallery will feature the art of Alison Fullerton. Alison is a contemporary portrait artist working in encaustic wax which is pigmented beeswax and damar resin. She paints by layering & scraping back layers of molten wax to reveal her subject physically and emotionally. Wax dries quickly, so she paints fast and spontaneously. Her colorful, tactile wax portraits have a luminous quality unlike any other medium. Alison lived and traveled in Europe for 3 years, sketching people in coffee shops and streets across Europe. Returning to her studio in Germany in 2019, she began slathering her sketches in wax and learned to work the wax in a more painterly fashion. Fullerton has exhibited throughout the US and Europe, has work in university and museum collections, and has authored articles about encaustic wax. Her work was recently on 10 Nashville billboards and on the cover of Wax Fusion magazine. She now lives and works in Nashville.
