P’cheen, a neighborhood institution located in the Old Fourth Ward, is pleased to present a special holiday art show featuring the work of local artist Jessica Blinkhorn on Friday December 13, 2013 from 7 to 10 p.m. A visual artist residing in Atlanta, Blinkhorn’s struggles with muscular dystrophy are represented throughout her work, dedicated to the evocation of social empathy and advocacy for individuals with disability issues. Throughout the night, art lovers are invited to take a journey through the figurative narrative depicted throughout Blinkhorn’s mixed-media pieces, while indulging in signature items from P’cheen’s seasonally influenced menu, alongside an array of beverage options from its extensive beer and spirit selection.
The evening will also feature the work of special guest artists Carly Piccione and Madeline Irene, both former students of Blinkhorn who have followed alongside her journey for social change. Bold and brilliant beyond its years, Blinkhorn describes Piccione’s work as reminiscent of acclaimed Austrian artist Egon Schiele, with the potential of contemporary British painter Jenny Saville in its delivery. Editorial and documentary photographer Madeline Irene has dedicated her time assisting Blinkhorn with her work and has played a pivotal role in her current body of work. Irene’s work eloquently captures her sensitivity through black and white photographs, creating a beautiful compliment to Blinkhorn and Piccione.
