I spent the last week at the Visitor Center Artist Camp: Sustainable Practices Symposium in Ewen Michigan. This is a new series that came out of the experience, they are acrylic on Terraskin paper, installed along the trail near the campground.
We slept in tents and spent most of our time outside. Here’s a link to the residency.
Of the Earth: Paintings by Jessica Mongeon opened May 1 in downtown Eau Claire, Wisconsin at the Volume One Gallery on Dewey Street.
The show has been getting a lot of press, including an interview in the Volume One Magazine (the headquarters happen to be in the same building as the show), an article in the local Rice Lake Newspaper, and a radio interview on Western Wisconsin Public Radio’s Arts Spectrum West program.
You can listen to the interview by clicking the link below. My part begins at 22 min. into the program.
Since many of you won’t be driving to Eau Claire this summer, I included a gallery of many of the paintings as well as some photos of the installation. The rest of the paintings can be found on my website. The exhibition closes July 4th.
Here are some photos from the opening.

It’s a beautiful day in Northwest Wisconsin. I went on a short hike to a small waterfall called Devil’s Kettle today. I wonder if it’s called that because the water is red. Here are some of my photos from the excursion, I have a feeling those colors and images will make their way into my paintings soon.
