BOULDER CITY HOSPITAL FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES FEATURED ARTIST FOR ITS
49TH ANNUAL ART IN THE PARK EVENT – October 1 & 2, 2011

Jennifer Main has been named Featured Artist for the Boulder City Hospital Foundation’s 49th Annual Art in the Park event. Main’s unique style is instantly recognizable for her whimsy and fearless use of vibrant color. “My favorite subjects to paint are my own characters which I create in my mind,” Main says. “I often use them to express a positive message about an aspect of life’s complex journey.”

As a young girl Main discovered she had a strong passion for painting. She began selling her work in galleries at the age of 17 and quickly became one of the top selling artists within the galleries. With growing confidence, hard work, and determination she experienced 13 years as a successful full-time artist. Main’s work is shown in galleries nationally and is available locally at her Las Vegas gallery. Main’s popularity continues to grow worldwide as collectors and fans are drawn to her vibrant art. You can view Jennifer’s work in booth #179 at this year’s Art in the Park event taking place October 1st and 2nd, 2011.
