The Works of Jean Bargeron

  • Chesterton Art Center 115 S. 4th Street Chesterton, IN 46304 United States (map)

Jean Bargeron will be the guest artist for the month of July at the Chesterton Art Center. She will host an Opening Reception on Sunday, July 8 from 2-4 p.m. An Ogden Dunes resident, Jean has been painting for 65 years and has had her paintings requested all over the world. She varies her technique depending on the subject matter - which encompasses everything from landscapes to portraits. Most recently, Jean has focused on oil painting as her primary medium. Whatever the artwork, she feels strongly that the, "viewer must be able to engage with the piece in order for it to be successful". 

Jean is a member of the Area Artist Association, and the Southern Shore Artist Association. In 2005, she spent a month in Ireland painting "en plein air" (painting outdoors), which endeared her to this artistic method. When she returned, she joined the Duneland Plein Air Painters and has participated in the group ever since. An active member of the Chesterton Art Center and the Art Barn, she feels strongly about supporting local art in NW Indiana. "I encourage everyone to not only go and support gallery exhibits, but support your favorite painters with ownership of a piece of their work." 

Jean's exhibit will hang at the Chesterton Art Center through July 30. The Chesterton Art Center is located at 115 S. 4th St., Chesterton, IN 46304. The hours are weekdays 11-4, and Saturdays 10-2.
