Vinita Jain (www.vinitajain.net), a local artist specializing in acrylic and pastel painting, has announced that her soft pastel painting titled "Reflection II" will be on display as part of the Visual Art Exchange Exhibit "Imagine" from Friday, Feb. 5 until Thursday, Feb. 25, located at 325 Blake St. With a theme inspired by the famous Spanish painter Salvador Dalß, the exhibit will showcase illustrative, surrealist and imaginative art from local artists.

"I am excited to have my work displayed as part of the ‘Imagine’ show," said Jain. "Surrealism is one of the most interesting genres of art, and I look forward to seeing my fellow artists’ pieces."

A native of India, Vinita Jain has lived in North Carolina for more than 10 years. As a child, art was a passion of Jain’s, and she was first introduced to pastels when she came to N.C. Jain took courses in drawing and color theory at Meredith College and since has taken pastel workshops from renowned artists. Influenced by impressionists such as Edgar Degas and Vincent Van Gogh, Jain works mainly with soft pastels but has recently begun working with acrylics.
