Art Show- Jessie McGrath

Monday, July 31, 2017
Peninsula Center Library
Foyer Exhibit Area
Starting off with merely a dream and a Lisa Frank kit, Jessie McGrath has been active in the arts from an early age. In her work, she strives towards the goal of enjoying the process over aiming for a finished product. This process involves lazy  sketches, layers of ink, paint, Zelda breaks, and foreign street food YouTube videos, all while listening to the same K-pop song on repeat.

 In her spare time, Jessie volunteers with non-profits, youth-based events, theater, costume and makeup design, murals, graphic design, photography, and manages and curates for the Peoples Art of Portland and Killer Pink galleries. 

Jessie will be hosting an art workshop on July 1st at 2 pm where participants can create their own art pieces using Jessie's mixed media techniques.  A reception with light refreshments will follow.  Supplies will be provided, no registration needed.
