Coming to THE SHOOTING GALLERY/ARTS ANNEX at
CONEY ISLAND USA, from August 8,2014 to August 24,2014, is FIRE OVER WATER, a major solo exhibition of the paintings of Len Jenkin.

Opening Night is Friday, August 8, 2014, 5-8pm. The artist will be present.

Len Jenkin is a self-taught painter, who's also a playwright, screenwriter, and novelist. His art is influenced by a career in storytelling, stage design, and directing. The paintings are mysterious narratives, the stories hidden and obvious at once, shadowy, strange and ambiguous. They often include language as well as images. He is a painter of internal landscapes, of the imagination, and of the American scene.

His paintings were recently chosen to be exhibited at the Governor's Island Art Fair, Chashama Exhibition Space, the Wild Project Gallery, NYC, and at the Chocolate Factory, Long Island City, N.Y.

Len Jenkin is thrilled to be in Coney Island for this show, a place that has influenced his work from the beginning, and twisted his mind since he was three years old. He's ridden the Cyclone, the Thunderbolt, the Bobsled, the Hell Hole, the Tornado, the Dragon's Cave, and was an Official Judge more than once in the early days of the Mermaid Parade, almost getting hit by flying beer cans on a number of occasions.
