‘Divergent Divas’ exhibit features works by three women artists

Littleton gallery has variety of pieces on display through May 11

Posted

Co-curators Moira Casey and Karina Elrod have organized a spring exhibit, “Divergent Divas,” to relate to the well-known musical, “Sisters of Swing,” a story of the Andrews Sisters, which plays April 6 through May 6 at Town Hall Arts Center in Littleton.

“Divergent Divas” features works in varied subject matter, styles and mediums that make visual harmony together, just as Laverne, Patty and Maxine did with their voices in the 1940s. Think “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” or the sentimental “Apple Blossom Time.”

Artists Teri McCans, Wendy Seebohar and Jennifer M. Collins bring varied backgrounds and a love for artistic storytelling to their exhibit, which hangs through May 11 in the Stanton Gallery at Littleton’s Town Hall Arts Center.

They will host an artists’ reception to meet the public prior to the April 13 performance (5:30 to 7:30 p.m.). The gallery is open weekdays and during performances.

• Wendy Seebohar grew up in Littleton and currently lives with her husband and three children in Roxborough, where she is inspired by the foothills and mountain landscape. She writes that she began her career in arts as a jewelry designer and metalsmith and started painting to satisfy a need to work at a larger scale. She painted for family and friends for a few years and made a career change as a self-taught artist who works with gouache, acrylic, pastel and pencil, “creating layers of color, form, texture and markings …” With a B.S. degree from Colorado State University, she is represented by the Rox Gallery and, until its recent closure, by Outnumbered Gallery in Littleton. She also has exhibited at local art walks in Colorado. wendyseebohar.com.

• Teri McCans’ visual language reflects a complex world she inhabits and witnesses. She grew up in rural New Jersey, surrounded by beauty, quiet and family support to develop her skills. Her dedication to and study of art began early and was interrupted when, after the 9/11 tragedy, she felt a desire to contribute to her country’s security and safety and joined the military.

She had multiple deployments to Iraq and kept up with creative work and college study when possible, earning a BFA from the College of New Jersey. She studies stability vs. fragility, strength vs. weakness, male vs. female, working in strong black and white and color. In 2014 she moved west to Colorado, where she works in law enforcement and continues to explore her world in art. She belongs to the American Watercolor Society, Denver’s Art Network and the Veterans’ Artist Alliance of Culver City, California. TeriMcCans.com.

• Jennifer M. Collins’ studio is named Juniper Moon. With mixed media, she interprets contemporary themes of “shelter and ravens, layers of collected collage, intricate patterns, transparent colors and thick impasto …”; elements of watercolor, acrylic paint, graphite and found object become “part of every painting and every figure. My work is expressive of journeys and guidance, shelter and pathways. Colors harmonize and patterns move to lure you.”

Collins works full-time at a graphic design agency and paints part-time in her studio, surrounded by “old maps, buttons, sticks+stones, love letters and wonderful colors that all join to create the artistic expression.” Her works are shown in galleries and in corporate collections.
