“To me, jazz represents pure freedom and opportunity, and my artwork is an expression of that freedom” – Marine Penvern

From her earliest days as a scenic painter frequenting NYC jazz clubs to paint the artists to her practice as a prêt-à-porter clothing designer, French-born, Hudson-based artist and fashion designer Marine Penvern has been inspired by jazz. Her solo exhibition Body & Soul features paintings, textiles, and clothing design that seek to convey the soul through the expression of the body with the spirit of jazz improvisation and collaboration.

Plum Blossom
Sunday, April 2 at 4pm

An in-gallery dance performance by Adam Weinert and Michelle Mola. Titled Plum Blossom, the collaboration speaks to the exhibition’s themes of expression through movement, improvisation, and community connection.
