Jamie Greenfield, a Lawrenceville artist and educator, has her Nature/Nurture show on display at The Watershed Institute through the end of the year.
There will be an opening reception at 3 p.m. on Nov. 3 for her artwork, which is on display in The Garden Club of Princeton Gallery. Her paintings reflect nature, cosmology, and the interconnectedness of the mind and the natural world.
Some of her paintings include images of the moth, which she regards as a much-maligned yet often conjured insect. Beautiful and dangerous, its metaphoric power persists in the literary imagination. The brevity of a moth’s life, coupled with its incessant movement toward the light, seems to capture our own human existential dilemma.
Jamie has taught studio art and art history at The Lawrenceville School, Rider University, SUNY Albany, and the Albany Academy for Girls. She currently offers Drawing classes at the Arts Council of Princeton.
Her work is represented in the permanent collections of The Lawrenceville School, the Mercer County Cultural & Heritage Commission, Rider University, Bryn Mawr College, the University of Delaware, The College of New Jersey, and the State University of New York at Fredonia.
