The Unseen Work of James Harold Jennings

When: Oct. 27-Nov. 30 2010

Freudian psychology suggests that people can't truly achieve their full potential until their parents die. James Harold Jennings would be the textbook example. Born in 1931, Jennings lived his whole life around Winston-Salem and began his career only after his mother died, when he was in his 40s. Among his creations are a gaggle of old school buses and, following in Russ Meyer's footsteps, "Amazon Women" paintings that speak to feminine strength and dominance. He died in 1999, and his works are in the care of his family. If you're curious about the man himself, his friend Mike Smith will be on hand to answer your questions. Smith owns the At Home Gallery and knew Jennings for years. The free reception runs 5:30-8 p.m. and includes live music and food. —Sarah Ewald
