ARTIST TALK | January 4, 2020 3:30 pm
ARTIST RECEPTION TO FOLLOW | January 4, 2020 5:00 pm
Steve Jensen has been a working artist for over 30 years. The image of the boat is very personal to Steve as it incorporates his background growing up on and around boats and boat-building, his Scandinavian heritage and his own personal journey of recovery from extreme grief and loss. The Voyager series, carved in wood or painted, is a direct result of these experiences. As humans, death is the one thing we have in common, and the boat in many cultures symbolizes a passage, or voyage, perhaps to the other side.
