Fran Gardino’s photo “Georgia on My Mind” is on the opposite end of the gallery from “River Head Rain” and the two pieces compliment each other so well I was glad that Artscope chose to put them together in this article.

Many thanks to the publisher of ArtScope Kaveh Mojtabai and the writer Elayne Clift.

Thanks also to John Stomberg for curating and to Katherine French, director of the art center for putting this show together.


River Head Rain

It was raining hard when I paddled up stream to the river head. I sketched this tree from a kayak while hiding under a big tree that was downed over the river.  The rain was warm and finding this tree was exciting making it a great trip. I was then obsessed with this tree until the Spring floods took it away. Now I have many sketches and photos to work from.

Jamie has been working on the Vineage Series for many years, exploring several species of vines covering trees all over New England.

“I am fascinated by the chaos of the climbers, their varied forms, and the subtle patterns that emerge. Over time the work has become more energetic and complicated to reflect the uncertainty, threat, and beauty of change.”

Jamie’s “Coast Guards” will be in the upcoming show: “Wetlands, Ever Changing Waters, Land, and Life
January 15 – February 20, 2015 at Sebastapol Center for the Arts. Sebastapol, CA.
This is an environmental art show focusing on changing wet lands, rivers, marshes and the ocean. “Coast Guards” was painted in 2010 from sketches done from a kayak in the Florida Keys. This spawned a series of paintings called “Coast Guards”. When developing a series Jamie does many sketches and paintings of a subject, all in an attempt to get the feel of a thing, or core of it, and translate it onto canvas. The Coast Guard Series has a dozen paintings of the mangrove keys. As the mangroves grow out into the water they create new islands or keys. The dense mangrove forests slows the storm surges and sea rollers and lessens flooding inland. The mangroves are also nurseries for many species of fish, marine organisms and birds. This show is in collaboration with the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation.
