July 16th through August 10th.
Artist Reception during Artwalk July 18th 5 to 8pm.
Born in Charleston, WV in 1978, JP Owens spent most of his childhood working on the family farm in rural Paradise, West Virginia. Being surrounded by tree-covered hills and living life away from social distractions enabled him to explore his ability to imagine and create on paper. This time in his life seasoned what has become a passion for uncovering the unseen through fine art.
JP Owens received a Bachelor of Arts with honors in Fine Art, Printmaking from West Virginia State University after studying graphic design at Marshall University. During his collegiate career he studied under many well-known West Virginia artists including Stanley Sporny, Paula Clendenin, Peter Massing and Mary Grassell. Before graduating he was awarded the 2003 Mullins Brothers Fellowship Award at WVSU for outstanding artistry. JP’s works have been juried into countless individual as well as group exhibitions along the East Coast and Midwest, as well as many fairs and festivals throughout the years. His artwork is also included in business and private collections throughout his home state of West Virginia.
JP’s art is ever-evolving. Originally a printmaker by study, his works centered on slightly abstracted linoleum and woodcuts of nature. He started painting these prints, which were brought to life with vibrant colors and patterns. JP also began creating illustrations of eccentric animals using marker and acrylic. These processes inspired the current focus of his art career. By incorporating acrylic and digital imagery he now creates works which still reflect his rural surroundings but often include an abstracted sense of surrealism. This twist of reality provides the viewer with a distorted, sometimes humorous glimpse of a typically ordinary scene.
