The Georgetown Art Center is pleased to present “Recent Paintings,” an exhibition of work by Jazz-minh Moore. Moore paints portraits with an eclectic palette: transferred text, poured resin, graphite and charred edges over birch panel. Although her paintings have a minimalist quality they certainly do not lack depth. Moore's work is deeply rooted in the personal and general interpretations of the natural world, culture and how human beings interact within a given space.

Jazz-mihn Moore graduated magna cum laude at Cornish College of the arts and received her

M.F.A at California State University. She currently assists in outreach with youth as a life drawing teacher and finds herself immersed within various community arts projects. With solo and group exhibitions internationally, Moore vastly communicates the importance of art making in and out of the studio: "Being an artist to me means being committed to art, which goes beyond the paintings I make in my studio. Art is a way of life and a belief system. If I can help other people create, through teaching or curating, this is part of it. The simple idea - I'm going to spend my time creating something instead of consuming something - is art.

This program teaches drawing and painting in the classical tradition. The curriculum and the teaching techniques are modeled on those of the Atelier programs.
