Jeans: definitely universal language

Nashville artist Sarah Webb works in her London studio to put the finishing touches on one of her recent “Blue Jean” painting. Michele, 16, of Nashville, was the model for this and other paintings in the Blue Jean series. Webb, who divides her time between Nashville and London, is achieving notice in both cities. She has been accepted for the second year in the annual exhibition — the 129th — of the Society of Women Artists in London. The exhibition continues through March 6 at the Westminster Gallery across from Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament. With her husband Gary she is in Nashville for several weeks to continue work on her “Blue Jean Series” — a painting from this series hangs in the London show. She says, “I wanted to do a series of paintings representative of life as I see it today. After looking around, it was readily apparent that blue jeans are the most obvious symbol of our generation. Blue jeans are the universal attire that currently crosses all cultural and geographic boundaries.”
