The Arts Council of Greater New Haven presents an exhibition of works by Connecticut artists Tim Nikiforuk and Blinn Jacobs at First Niagara Bank, 195 Church St., 4th floor, New Haven. The exhibition will be on display during bank hours from Mar. 20, 2012 through June 15, 2012. An artists’ reception is scheduled for Tues., Apr. 17, from 5—7 p.m. The public is invited to attend.
Nikiforuk’s more recent work focuses on both portraiture of self-posting/social media sites and the abstract nature of biological entities and systems. Jacobs focuses much of her work on a dialogue between polygonal “shaped” canvases and the use of “painterliness” in regard to the interaction of color.
Tim Nikiforuk is a graduate of the University of Connecticut. His work can be seen in private collections throughout the Northeast region, as well as art exhibitions throughout Connecticut. Currently, he is an adjunct professor of Quinebaug Valley Community College, Gibbs College, and the University of New Haven. He currently lives in Middletown, CT.
Blinn Jacobs studied at the Yale School of Art as a special student for four years and received her MFA in painting from the University of Pennsylvania in 1993. She has received awards from the Connecticut DECD—Office of the Arts, the Slivermine Arts Center, as well as fellowships from the Virginia Center for Creative Arts and the Oberpfalzer Kunstlerhaus in Schwandorf, Germany. She currently lives and works in Branford, CT.
