Melville House Publishing
Candy Jernigan Exhibition
Show runs throughout January
Candy Jernigan worked in New York as an artist + graphic designer, and she was an illustrator in every sense of the word. Her eye was evident, whether collecting objects for her paintings and journals to illustrate evidence of where she had been, or making detailed illustrative drawings. She could activate a single line, suddenly revealing horizon, sky, and ground. Candy died in 1991.
