Greg Gummersall  and Jenny Gummersall Featured in May at JRB Art at the Elms

JRB Art at the Elms features the artwork of artistic couple, Greg and Jenny Gummersall. Greg’s exhibit will feature large eye-catching abstract paintings filled with intriguing shapes and symbols and striking color. Jenny is a fine art photographer, whose work features unique compositions of animals and landscapes celebrating the West. The shows  are open now and will run through May 30th in conjunction with the Paseo Arts Festival.

Greg Gummersall creates large abstract paintings of his own unique style, filled with energetic gestural brushstrokes and spontaneous bursts of color. The linear aspects of his work suggest words and symbols whose meanings can be sensed but never fully grasped. As explained by Theresa Murray of Jean Albano Gallery in Chicago, His artwork is “reminiscent of adrenaline-filled quickly-drawn graffiti. But unlike the temporary existence of most graffiti, Greg’s brushstrokes and use of collage build upon each other to create a sense of memory in the canvases; nothing is erased, and through the layers of paint, the history of his marks remains visible.” Greg’s use of bold primary colors echoes the work of New York School abstract expressionists Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenburg, and William de Kooning.

Greg was born in Pocatello, Idaho and began his professional career with exhibitions in Durango, Colorado some 30 years ago. Gummersall’s iconic paintings have been exhibited in leading galleries around the United States, as well as in Germany and Austria. His artwork is in many private, corporate and public collections including the Fordham University Museum at Lincoln Center, New York City; Federal Reserve Bank, Chicago; Palm Springs Art Museum; Toyota; the Tucson Museum of Art; Sheraton Hotel, Osaka; Pacific Bank and many others.  Throughout the years his art has also been represented by galleries at major U.S. fine art fairs including Chicago, Los Angeles, Santa Fe, New York, and San Francisco. Greg was honored to be included in the 183rd National Academy Invitational Exhibition of Contemporary American Art in New York City. Recent exhibits have included the Jean Albano Gallery in Chicago, the Michele Mosko Fine Art Gallery in Denver, the WC3 Gallery in Aspen, and A. Beadles Fine Art in Carbondale, Colorado and Ft. Worth, Texas.

Jenny Gummersall is a fine art photographer whose images of farm animals, natural objects, and landscapes present an enduring and iconic vision of the West. From her earliest days in the darkroom, at 3 years old, she has studied life with a unique eye for transforming the normal into the unusual. Born near Chicago, Jenny studied art and photography at Columbia College in Missouri. A graduate of the University of New Mexico, Jenny’s love of the West was inspired by the New Mexico light. Her mentor, the late Reinhold Misselbeck (Curator of Museum Ludwig in Cologne, Germany) encouraged Jenny to photograph her present surroundings so as to share those expert technical abilities with her passion of “drawing with light.”

Jenny Gummersall’s art is in numerous corporate and public art collections as well as notable private collections. Articles celebrating Gummersall’s art have been published in Aspen Magazine, Cowboys & Indians, the cover of Southwest Art, Colorado Homes and Lifestyles, and Canada’s Wish Magazine.
