YOU ARE INVITED TO AN ART UNVEILING!
All are invited to attend the unveiling of the selected Easthampton Savings Bank Loan Center commissioned art work by ECA+ artist Eileen Jager on Friday, January 18, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. The ceremony will be held at the Loan and Banking Center, 241 Northampton Street, Easthampton. Light refreshments will be served following the ceremony.
The light and color transformation was a component that attracted Easthampton Savings Bank to Jager’s work. After meeting with ECA+ and Easthampton Savings Bank representatives, Jager began finalizing the design of the project for the approximately-sized 5’ x 5’ lobby wall. Her abstract composition is inspired by natural elements and forms such as the skyline of Mount Tom as featured prominently in views from the back of the new building.
Jager practices her art at One Cottage Street where she has held a studio for almost 21 years and is chairperson for Cottage Street Studios. She earned an MFA from Alfred University in glass and sculpture and has studied at Tyler School of Art and West Glamorgan Institute of Higher Education in Swansea Wales, UK. Her work has been featured in prominent publications such as American Style, The Artful Home, and Furniture Style. As a Certiﬁed Practitioner of Interior Alignment, Jager helps clients change the way they think about environments they inhabit through her business and feng shui practice called the Artfully Home.
