Cadiz Community Arts Center/Janice Mason Art Museum/Southern Kentucky Independent Theatre announces the opening of Works by Jennifer Fairbanks, marked by a reception for the artist on May 4 beginning at 5 p.m.

The exhibit consists of a collection of mostly figurative paintings and drawings and runs through June 10.

Fairbanks was raised in Western Kentucky. In 1994 she received a Bachelor’s degree from Murray State University with an emphasis on painting and ceramics. During this time she also began to pursue training in classical painting techniques with portrait artist Joy Thomas.

This interest led her to New York, where she was able to relocate in 1998 through a grant from the Kentucky Arts Council. Jennifer studied figurative and portrait painting with Ron Sherr and Mary Beth McKenzie at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design.

In 2003 she received a Master’s degree from New York University in Art Therapy. She has exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in New York, Kentucky and Spain.
