Introducing For the Love of Art

Maryland Federation of Art donated a one-month-long online exhibition to the Arts Council of Anne Arundel County’s virtual fundraiser in the Spring of 2022. Jen Sterling’s series, For the Love of Art, will be available on MFA’s website January 10 – February 10, 2023.

For the Love of Art is a series of pieces that express the emotion, depth, and energy of love. These expressionistic abstract works are contained within a rigid steel heart. Much like the emotion we hold for those we love…there are days where we feel our hearts will burst with it! They are an ideal and unique gift for the art lover in your life.

Artist Statement

I bask in color. Color has always had a profound influence on my mood. While traveling in the American Southwest in 1990, I was so moved by the colors that I promptly bought paint and canvas, hoping to convey how those colors made me feel; vivid, alive, and powerful. My goal is not to capture an image, but to capture the emotion that image conjures. Friends describe me as vibrant, passionate, and creative; those words apply to my art as well. Creating work that is fluid, that inspires energy and excitement, vitality and confidence: this gives me the greatest artistic satisfaction.
