Announcing CollexArt’s First Purchase Award

Winner - Jeanne Golightly

Portland, Maine – WEBWIRE
Long They Wait, Hope Series No. 17
Long They Wait, Hope Series No. 17

Through the act of painting, I find my voice and make comment on our world and current events. Racism. Walls. Refugees. Migration. Displacement. And then, there’s hope. Hope often exists, however fragile, among individuals, families, and communities with limited opportunities....What sustains hope? Where does it end?

CollexArt announces their first artwork acquisition. The CollexArt Purchase Award has been given to the artist, Jeanne Golightly for her works titled Long They Wait, Hope Series No. 17 and In Honor, Hope Series No.16.  Both works are now part of the CollexArt Collection, and can be seen in the online exhibit titled Migrations.

As an artist, Jeanne Golightly uses her medium to bring attention to social issues. Her work focuses on topics like refugees, racism, borders, migration, and displacement. The online Migrations exhibit brings together a small series of paintings that underscore the often complicated aspects of being displaced with a mass of people. Golightly aptly captures the loss of individuality that these people experience. With her aerial views of featureless migrants, her work offers a clear critique of how media and governments depict refugees and migrants as nameless, faceless masses who have no voice. With titles like Long They Wait, Hope Series No. 17, and Neither Here Nor There, Golightly underscores the predicament migrants find themselves in our present-day world.

Jeanne Golightly resides in the USA and has also lived in Germany, Jordan, Kuwait, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates. Her paintings are part of private collections in the Middle East, Europe, and the United States.

The CollexArt Purchase Award is intended to support selected artists with meaningful recognition. Recipients of the Purchase Award get entered as finalists for the annual Collexart Grand Prize

Artists of any nationality may apply for the Purchase Award.
