Jamie Kelty: Peripheral Visions – Opening Reception

Jamie Kelty Guitar Solo for Two Mixed Media Collage

Story is at the heart of Jamie’s mixed media artwork with their raw materials and meticulous details

Opening Reception & Mill Valley First Tuesday Art Walk:
* June 6, 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Exhibition Dates:
* June 7 – September 30

Artist Jamie Kelty will be present.

Jamie Kelty‘s artworks will be in our gallery ongoing. Jamie Kelty’s collages and mixed media paintings are magical worlds she creates to reflect memories, history and a crafted world of design. Her detailed scenes use drawn images the artist cuts from her sketchbook, torn assorted papers, found or recycled 3-D objects and other detritus in various forms. Acrylic paint, ink, and drawing materials are used as an underpainting and to add details, texture and design to the artwork.

“It’s amazing what one can find along a walk. Some plastic or metal piece that fell from a vehicle. The shape, the design, the history all resonate with me,” describes Jamie Kelty.

The exhibition includes a selection of new and existing works. The people Jamie features are characters she observes and imagines–whom she has drawn in her sketchbook and cut out as part of the detailed, textural collage work she employs. Colors appear in combinations of earthy and bold, giving the paintings a visceral quality and textural depth, which is at once urban and elemental. The meaningful, whimsical and layered universe she creates in each collage or mixed media painting may also share inspiration from the city of San Francisco, her love of mid-century furniture and art history.
