Refreshing Journey: Recent Art by Jenny Hong DeLaughter

May 3-September 27, 2014
The White Rock Lake Museum (located inside the Bath House Cultural Center) presents Refreshing Journey, an exhibition of drawings inspired by White Rock Lake by Dallas artist Jenny Hong DeLaughter.

The exhibition celebrates the interaction of humans with the natural environment of White Rock Lake. The painter gracefully depicts scenes from life at the lake with her drawings. With the splendid view of the lake as the background of many of her drawings, Jenny captures images of family gatherings, landscapes, wildlife, and other special moments with insightful perception and sensibility.

Although the artist has demonstrated a predilection for painting abstract compositions on canvas, she chose to rely on the medium of small-scale drawings to create the artwork for her show. The selected size and media create a sense of deep intimacy between the viewer and the work of art, which serves as an invitation for a closer, more introspective look of the artist’s creations.

Jenny explains that her artwork reflects her view of the refreshing and rejuvenating life around White Rock Lake that is so easily overlooked in our busy lives. About her love for the lake, she further states: “White Rock Lake has been my refuge for over 30 years. It has inspired and shaped my life and provided unlimited subjects for artistic creativity. It liberates my conventional way of thinking and opens my mind to new possibilities. A walk at the late is a time for quiet reflection, but much more than the solitary experience with the lake is the fascinating parade of human stories that gives White Rock Lake its legendary status. For me, it is a special opportunity to convey, as an artist, the hidden beauty of the lake.”
