Stop by Jessie Lawson's Artist Reception to grab a drink, see some art, and meet the artist behind work. A bit about the artist:
"I turned to making art in my mid-fifties, after a university career teaching writing and literature and developing programs for distance and continuing education.
During the next 25 years I exhibited in solo and group shows, co-owned two art galleries, and taught workshops in collage and mixed media. My art can be found in private collections throughout North America. In recent years I’ve become increasingly interested in using art for fundraising, particularly for food and medical aid and for getting out the vote.
My art is related to all the reading and teaching I’ve done, since it draws on folk and fairy tales, legends, and other stories that feature the adventures of fantastic beings.
Now in my early eighties, I'm still busy making fantastic creatures: painting them, collaging them, molding and sewing them, and doing whatever else I can think of to bring them into the world."
