A Brush with Art: Jen Prior

The Prairie Hotel presents new works by Jen Prior in conjunction with the 2015 “A Brush with Art” regional art event.

Jen is a multi-award winning artist based at Mintaro in the magnificent South Australian wine district of Clare Valley. Jen’s contemporary inspired abstract work has been acclaimed as so revolutionary in its application that it redefines the boundaries of original pastel artwork. Up to twelve layers are required to achieve her trademark look. Self-taught, her gentle, radiant, distinctly unique style enjoys a loyal and enthusiastic following around the globe.

Opening Saturday 5 September 2015, 5.30pm

at Prairie Hotel, Parachilna

Guest performances by musician John O’Dea and comedian Dave Prior.
