Raven’s Wish Gallery is pleased to announce a solo art exhibition, If Wishes Were Horses, by Jessie Willyerd of Janesville. Jessie is best known for her colorful acrylic paintings and pastel drawings that merge together abstract elements and realistic equine forms. She believes that the horse is a powerful symbol representing the capacity we all hold for change and growth through the freedom to discover and be who we truly are.
In her exploration of color and form, Willyerd states, “I love to look into the shadows and find colors and value changes that are easily overlooked if one only focuses on the light. By bringing beauty to the shadows that describe the form I hope to bring awareness to the idea that both light and dark are equal components in creating the whole.”
