A solo exhibition for the work of Tessa Clawson will be held during June at Bear Creek Frames located at 367 Main St. in Quincy. The opening reception will be held, Friday, June 2, from 5-7 p.m.; the event is free and open to the public. The exhibition will continue until June 3o.
Titled “The Joke’s on Me,” the show is a collection of pieces that poke fun at the artist’s well-being. It includes original watercolor pieces, clown self-portraits, and a collection of high-quality prints that are humorous and slightly unsettling. The pieces are accompanied by a selection of illustrated dog prints that feature the artist’s childhood dogs. These prints depict scenes of the dogs engaging in silly shenanigans.
Tessa Clawson lives in Graeagle and is an MFA student at Savannah College of Art and Design. In her art, she focuses on her own experiences in life and how they affect her. Tessa’s latest work comments upon gender exploration and the relationship with her partner. Major themes in her work include gender and sense of self.
