    "Moving Images" at The Oxbow Gallery

    Exhibition: March 2 - 26
    Reception: Friday, March 10 from 5-8pm

    At the beginning of each week in this month-long exhibition, the artist will create paintings to document the previous week’s work and then compose a new image directly on the gallery walls. This evolving work will be arranged and re-arranged a total of four times, and its history recorded, reflected, and absorbed into itself.

    The lineage of Moving Pictures, too, dates back to previous exhibitions. Visit www.jessicaJtam.com to view site-specific paintings Welcome to the Jungle, Leglocked, and DECKLE LOG.

  • "Working It Out" at The Painting Center

    Exhibition runs from June 18 - July 27, 2013

    Opening Reception: Thursday, June 20th, 6-8pm
    Come by and say hello!


    "Working It Out" features 112 artists of all disciplines who begin their creative process with preparatory drawings. This enables visual problem solving throughout the execution of an artwork that is both fluid and beautiful. Drawing can be an exploration of materials, mark making, the emotional tenor of a piece, compositional arrangements or color. Working drawings are the visual manifestation of a work in progress; a working idea. Typically, this work is not seen by the public. These are private musings that reflect thought processes. They are, by definition, incomplete. This exhibition will allow the viewer to see the private world of the artist’s creative process.

    This work is about discovery. We looked for exploration rather than refinement: the beginnings of ideas rather than their execution. The pieces here show artists at their most personal ”working things out”. Happily, the forms these explorations take, are varied in both material and process. Some are 3 dimensional. Most, but not all, are works are on paper. Dimensions vary from 1 inch to 6 feet. Some use photography, printmaking and collage as well as the more traditional drawing media of pencil ink and color. Occasionally paper is added to change scale, shift perspective, or cover an earlier thought. There are erasures, corrections and emphatic marks. These represent an active field. We see artists making choices throughout these inventions. We viewers follow and contrast both thought and process.

  • Opening for NYC Show January 20, 2011 - "Introducing"

    "Introducing" at
    Slag Gallery
    531 West 25th St. (between 10th and 11th Avenues)
    link to gallery website

    Opening reception from 6-8pm on Thursday, January 20th.
    Come on over and say hello!

    Exhibition will remain on view until February 20, 2011.
    Gallery hours: Tuesday - Saturday, 11am-6pm

    “Introducing” presents the work of six emerging artists. The commonality between these artists’ work is a play between opposites
    and the friction or harmony that is resultant of it. Some themes addressed are classicism versus modernity, the overlapping and
    sometimes overwhelming definitions of one subject, of cultural production and its dual effects, waste and beauty. Similar to the
    gallery’s name, the work represented here is about how definition is itself by nature subjective and so is simultaneously lasting
    and mutable.
