Curating Curiosities is a community visual arts exhibit in the JUMP Lobby that gives the public a chance to view local artwork. Participating artists will be present to meet with the public during First Thursdays in the Lobby, and will also share their inspiration and background with the community during a Connecting Community presentation followed by a Q and A. Local artists of all levels and backgrounds are invited to submit works of art that will be displayed in the JUMP Lobby for approximately three weeks. If interested in sharing your artwork, send an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jessica was born in Ontario, Canada, but has been a Boise resident for the last 18 years. She loves learning new crafts and art forms that she can use to work with color and texture. Since childhood she has always found deep satisfaction in tactile creativity. Weaving is one of her favorite methods she's found yet, though she also enjoys collage, pottery, mosaic, as well as various 2D arts. Jessica has had some formal art education, though she is mainly self taught.
