Heirloom’s artist for March and April is Jess Dunlap. Jess has a Bachelors of Fine Art with a concentration in sculpture from the University of West Georgia, which allowed her the latitude to indulge in many different forms of media and 3-dimensional concepts.
Around the age of 12, Jess’s sister gifted her a wood-burning tool that would reappear in her later work leading to new possibilities and exciting art explorations. Her designs are created on birch plywood and can take a solid 3–6 hours to complete once the design has been drawn up. The completed pieces have ranged from precise geometric patterns to the curved lines of a magnolia, and even whimsical origami cranes. Please join us on Wednesday, March 4th from 5:30-6:30, to meet Jess, view her art in our space, and learn more about her creative process. There will be snacks and a cash bar.
