2nd Friday Art About
Nov 8, 2019
The November Art About has come and gone, but the show will remain at Logos until replaced by our December artist.
We’ll be featuring art by Jeffrey Granett in a show called “Reflections and Stories”. His prints are made in three different ways – Linoleum block prints colored with water color paint, using the GIMP computer program as well as linoleum block, and prints from etchings on a surface of clear Plexiglas.
Refreshments will be provided.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Me, Myself and I
I am Jeffrey Granett. From my childhood till now I have had both an artistic and scientific Identity. My art came from my artist-mother and science came from my scientist-father. Because scientists get paid to work whereas artists tend not to be paid, I spent my working years as a professional scientist with art as a back-row interest. A dozen years ago I retired from my Entomology position at UCDavis and since then my prime focus has been art. I was a docent at the Crocker Museum for 10 years and recently retired from that; I have been Chair of the Art Committee at the International House, Davis. But my main art focus has been on making my own art, primarily prints. I have averaged making between 60 and 100 pictures per year. The subjects have been family, animals, landscapes, story-telling, and abstractions.
