Artist of the Day- Jessica Straus (click on image to view individually)

There is a wonderful exhibit at the George Marshall Store Gallery in York, Maine. Well worth the trip…and you get to be at the ocean! Jessica Straus is one of the artists, exhibiting small, witty, carefully constructed sculptures. They’re in one room on little shelves. Maybe there are 40 of them and…you just want them all! So I bought one…which was difficult because I wanted them ALL. She works primarily in wood and mixed media. Inventiveness, and narrative are key elements of her sculpture. She’s a native of New Hampshire and now lives in the Boston area and maintains a studio in Somerville, MA.
