Charlotte Street is pleased to present NOW IS THE ONLY THING THAT’S REAL, part of the Charlotte Street Studio Residency Program Series.

NOW IS THE ONLY THING THAT’S REAL is Jennifer Lynn Williams’ first solo exhibition, featuring new and recent work on canvas, paper, and experimental materials. Working primarily in acrylic paint and ink markers on a darkened canvas, this exhibition will feature works on paper and non-traditional materials such as particle board.  Jennifer’s art for this showing was originally meant to explore life and rebirth, death and regeneration. As the work progressed, recent news stories and research have influenced those themes to encompass the ongoing debate about the right to life, the right to quality of life, and freedom to choose death.

The Charlotte Street Studio Residency Program ¶ Series is a series of exhibitions, performances, projects, and public programs organized by and highlighting the work of Charlotte Street Studio Residents. From September 2013-December 2014, Charlotte Street’s Paragraph and Project Space galleries, 21-23 East 12th Street in downtown Kansas City, Missouri, will be dedicated to the Charlotte Street Studio Residency Program ¶ Series.

The intent of the series is to amplify the impact of the residency program by providing resident artists with opportunities to produce and publicly present ambitious new work and projects at highly visible public venues. Through the series, artists gain valuable hands-on experience with curating, marketing, installing and coordinating all aspects of producing exhibitions, performances, and events, while also pushing their work in new ways, undertaking new collaborations, and gaining increased exposure.
