The Gallery at 764 West Hosts Scott Jarisch & Jean Longone - Art Show “Partners in Art”
New Braunfels, Texas (http://www.764west.com/pages/goingon.html) June 5, 2008 - The Gallery at 764 West Hosts “Partners in Art”, an art exhibition for Scott Jarisch and Jean Longone, opening on June 2 and running through August 5 as part of San Antonio Contemporary Art Month in July.
Scott Jarisch has a Bachelor of Arts in Art from the University of Texas at Austin. Trained primary in pottery and sculpture, Scott’s art ranges from classical pieces all the way to punk with an attitude. His pen and ink crosshatching is especially hard edged and intense. Paintings also display Scott’s passionate use of line and pattern.
Jean Longone’s formal art training is in digital design and commercial art. Jean’s current paintings make use of color and line and explore figurative abstraction. Her black and white photography is a graphic mix that merges digital imaging with traditional film. Experimenting in repetitive form and found objects, her sculpture tends to be minimal and to the point.
Together, in “Partners in Art”, as part of San Antonio’s Contemporary Art Month, Scott Jarisch and Jean Longone demonstrate “ The gestalt is now.” Not to be missed are their collaborations involving glass, photography, and light. Longone’s spontaneous acquisitioned assemblage of parts juxtaposed against Jarisch’s calculated explosion of line merges into art that speaks for itself. It is about the art.
