The Art Show at the JEA beginning August 3, 2020, 
will feature the works of Courtney Trowman
Courtney Trowman -  Biography
“Move Through”
       A new exhibition,  Move Through , by Courtney C. Trowman opens August 3rd at the Jewish Educational Alliance featuring around 40 works of mixed media collage that will be on display until August 31st.
       In  Move Through , Courtney temporarily draws people’s attention away from fine art to fun(ky) art, fun being the key. Courtney aims to move the viewer through a whimsical journey, hoping they pause for the surprise details. Many of the pieces will also feature a poem or haiku description.
All the pieces on display were created with either the concept of ‘portals’ and/or ‘landscapes’ in mind, both of which a person makes the conscious choice to move through…or not. While Courtney says the show does not have a specific agenda or statement, she does invite the viewers to be drawn in by the fun and then find a theme or state of being of their own in each piece and ask themselves “Shall I move through?”
Courtney has been in Savannah since January of 2016, previously living in California, Arizona, Ohio and even England for two years. This is her first solo art show, though she has been part of several group shows at Sulfur Studios. Courtney came to her art in her twenties, taught by her own curiosity, play and experimentation. Courtney’s creative career has also included being a professional dance theatre performer and the Assistant Director for  Zion Dance Company ,  as well as a self-published poet. 
       When asked about her collage art, Courtney says it was born out of an inherent need to create, a desire for another outlet other than dance or poetry, and specifically from her inability to draw or paint well. She became fascinated by collage and mixed media after seeing Robert Rauschenberg’s work for the first time. She says he gave hope to her inner Picasso. All her work consciously consists of upcycled and recycled items.
       “I always have my eyes peeled for found objects or interesting bits of “trash” on the ground.” She also notices that one area of her creativity bleeds into all the others. You can see elements of both poetry and motion in her work.
       The ‘Move Through’ art exhibition will surprise gallery visitors with its unique perspective, liveliness, multi-layers, and unexpected details in both materials and techniques.
