JESSICA BELL MFA '15, Fits and Starts, Solo Exhibition at Central Art Garage

April 7 - May 31st.

"Because my heart is a muscle that rarely gets sore.”1

Central Art Garage is pleased to present Fits and Starts, Jessica Bell's second solo exhibition with the gallery.
Bell wades through expansive perspectives and approaches to formal abstraction as well as her personal history to domestic craft, engaging questions of privilege, permanence and visibility.
Joining mindful moments between her objects and the spaces they inhabit, Fits and Starts revels in repetition and care as Bell's means toward outward resolve and subsequent affection.
