74 Year Old Artist Travels to Paint – Most Recently in Jersey City
Bunny Pearlman to Exhibit During Jersey City’s 2012 Open Studios Tour
Bunny Pearlman has spent part of every year since 1957 traveling to paint. Her journeys have taken her to studios in Arad and Safed Israel (where she studied Kabbalah); San Miguel, Mexico; Key West, Berkeley, Provincetown, Rapid City, Boulder, Sarasota, Russian River, Venice (Italy), Los Angeles, San Francisco, Gainesville, Boston, New York City, and – most recently – Jersey City.
Not surprisingly, Pearlman’s work focuses on place, following the seasonal changes in light and atmosphere. Her paintings are narrative – telling the story of time and place, light and shadow on architecture and the natural environment. This year’s work — painted in Provincetown, MA and Jersey City, NJ — is a series entitled, “A Time For Counting.”
This series will be exhibited during the 22nd Annual Jersey City Artists’ Studio Tour, October 13th and 14th 2012, 12-6 PM, with an opening reception on Saturday October 13 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m at her studio, 313 3rd Street, Jersey City.
Bunny Pearlman moved from California to Provincetown in 1973. Her career as an artist began in New York – her birthplace – with her first exhibited painting at age ten winning a prize from the Jewish Museum. She has a BFA from the University of Florida and an MFA in Painting from the University of Southern California with post graduate studies at Cal State Sonoma. Her works are in many public and private collections including The Ringling Museum, The Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, The Pasadena Art Museum, The Cape Museum, The Arad Museum (in Arad Israel) and Provincetown Art Association & Museum. In Provincetown her work was exhibited largely at the East End Gallery which she directed from 1987 until 2004.
Most recently her work was shown in Provincetown at Gallery Ehva.
Last winter, Bunny returned to Provincetown after a five year stint directing the art program and teaching art at Congregation Beth El in Berkeley California. She moved to Berkeley after returning from Israel where she taught a variety of classes at the WUJS institute in Arad including contemporary fresco technique. Other teaching credits include visiting artist/teacher at Provincetown High, Director of the Graphics department and teacher of graphics and mixed media at New College in Sarasota. She also taught at the Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota and painting and mixed media at the Pasadena Art museum in California.
