Jo Dean Bauknight

March, 2017

An exhibition of oil paintings will be featured in the main gallery at City Art for the month of March 2017 celebrating the colors of life in paintings by Columbia artist Jo Dean Bauknight.

Jo Dean describes her paintings as an energetic profusion of brush strokes that create a movement and a vibrancy that invite a strong emotional response. In sharp contrast to her meticulously rendered works, her impressionistic paintings featured in this exhibition are full of bright bold colors.

Born in Conway, SC Jo Dean was educated at Columbia College and the Atlanta Art Institute and is a former art teacher at the Hammond School. She is the mother of three and a full-time painter.
