Hi, I can't see where to add City state and zip. Can you put Sudbury MA 01776 in for me?

Jeanne is the 2019 recipient of the Cape Ann Museum Residency Fellowship, and will spend the month of September painting on Cape Ann. Recently Jeanne served as educational consultant to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston for their popular 19th Century French Pastels exhibit, where she also presented gallery talks and painting demonstrations last year. Jeanne has won numerous top awards, most recently including first place in Pastel Journal magazine’s 2019 Top 100 landscape competition, an honor she also took in 2017. She is a Master Artist with the Copley Society, a signature member of the Pastel Society of America and the American Society of Marine Artists, an IAPS Master’s Circle Member, and a member of New York’s Salmagundi Club. Jeanne has exhibited work in museums nationwide and her work is in collections on five continents. “Right now, I’m most interested in working with the abstract underlying designs beneath the realistic images I paint, and seeing just how far I need to go in order to maintain realism while still leaving something to the imagination. I love pastel because the rich, pure pigments allow vibrations of color and visual mixing impossible to capture in any other medium. Pastel fits my personality. It’s a vibrant and flexible medium, allowing both a simple, direct approach and the buildup of complex, rich layers and textures. While I appreciate a good plan, I love that with pastel there’s always room for a change in direction. www.jeannerosiersmith.com
