Wake Up! Nothing is Permanent Except Change - Jennifer Jean Okumura Solo Show

Updated: Mar 3

Join us for 'Un bel dí vedremo,' the Reception for ‘Wake Up! Nothing is Permanent Except Change’ Saturday, February 17, 6-8 pm. Come in your best Madame Butterfly influence that explores themes of 'all' love, the heartbreak of nature and love of life's blaring call, and cultural differences that blend East and West cultures. 

This love story marks the day Madame Butterfly premiered and is the perfect blend of Eastern and Western cultures of our featured artist, Jennifer Jean Okumura. Staying true to the show theme, Nothing is permanent except change; only constant in life, the only thing we can be sure will happen. Change brings perspective, clarity, and true unconditional love like the Sun. We live in an ocean of energy in constant motion, and our life, 'everything' around us, is temporary -- Madame Butterfly encapsulates all this. This tale of a young Japanese geisha who marries an American naval officer; she embraces the changes that come her way, for they are the catalysts for the growth of her limitations, and she emerges as her most authentic self on its transformative journey that does not always have a happy ending. Tonight, we celebrate change, life, and love.

Jennifer Jean Okumura grew up in Philadelphia, attended Syracuse University and received her MFA from Boston University. She has had extensive Fine Art experiences as a former FPAC Board Member, Fine Art consultant, Design Associate, Adjunct Educator at the MFA, coFounder of Art Advising Group Invoke Contemporary, founding Exhibition Chair for the National Association of Women Artists, Inc and as an Arck Artist Ambassador. Jennifer’s color and creative texture harmoniously lend to the natural world and her Eastern and Western heritage influences. She has been featured in The Vendue Art Hotel, Massachusetts State Senate [Sen. Will Brownsberger], Four Seasons Downtown, Kayak, Boston Consulting Group, Boston College Office of Marketing Communications, Morgan Stanley, Acadian Asset, Worcester Polytechnic Institute Collection, Aetna Corp. Collection, and Private Collections.
