"Jerusalem" by Tatiana Hankinson, winner of the Award of Excellence at the 2012 "Possibilities in Pastel VI" show.
DUNEDIN - The Pastel Society of Tampa Bay is hostings its annual art exhibit, "Possibilities in Pastel VII" through Feb. 27 at the Stirling Art Gallery, 730 Broadway, Dunedin.

Opening reception and awards presentation by nationally known pastel artist, Barbara Jaenicke, is Friday, Feb. 8, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Born in 1964 and raised in New Jersey, Barbara Courtney Jaenicke loved to draw and paint as a child and decided at an early age to pursue a career in art in one form or another. As an art major in college, she took as many fine art courses as she could, while also taking painting classes outside of her college studies, but to have a steady income right after college, she geared her education toward the commercial side and spent a little over a decade of her early career in advertising as an art director. She later worked in marketing communications in the corporate world. In 2002, she was able to turn her focus to her fine art career.

Currently residing in Roswell, Ga. with her husband and son, Jaenicke paints landscapes and still life in pastel and oil, with pastel being her specialty. When creating her paintings, she rarely copies her subject matter exactly as it appears, but instead adapts the colors and composition into her own interpretation.

Jaenicke is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America, a member of the IAPS Master Circle, a Member of Excellence in the Southeastern Pastel Society, and a member of Oil Painters of America. She teaches weekly pastel classes locally in the metro Atlanta area and also teaches workshops throughout the US. For more information, visit barba­rajae­nicke­.com
