Please join us for an Artist’s Reception Saturday, June 5th, Time: TBA (later in the day)
Jessica Willis, a visiting artist from Ohio, has been captivated by the landscape of Northern California. She has been moving towards a holistic art practice as she explores organic materials and incorporates them into her two and three-dimensional work. She collects these materials in an ecologically-conscious hunter-gatherer fashion and is beginning to make her own paints using natural pigments. Collaborating with nature, she finds forms and allows them to grow organically as process takes over: bending, weaving, rearranging, constructing and deconstructing. Spontaneity and change are embraced as the artwork forms through growth and decay, capturing the cyclical essence of nature.
Jessica graduated from the Ohio State University with her Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2013 and has won multiple awards for her dynamic and engaging work. “Rhythm” will be a celebration of nature at Shasta County Arts Council and will run through the month of June.
