Jessica Somers has been hard at work to bring her unique, striking and beautiful blend of photography and encaustic to the masses. Consequently it’s no surprise that Somers has put together a blend events to keep her busy.

  • Opening this Saturday May 2nd is the first solo exhibit for my new series Meditations on Being a Phoenix. This body of work has been in progress over the last 2 years and has taken many incarnations before reaching its final form as large pigment prints under encaustic wax and oil. The opening reception is from 5-7pm this Saturday at Gallery 136 1/2. The show runs until May 30th.
  • Opening on June 6th at the Margaret L. Macdonough Gallery is the three person invitational exhibition Through A Glass Refracted. This show is a special one for me, I get to exhibit a selection of the Meditations on Being a Phoenix photographs alongside works by my two closest friends from college, artists Paula Robins and Adam Lein. This show takes place during the Alumni Reunion weekend at Albertus Magnus College. There will be an opening reception from 2:30-5pm on June 6th, please RSVP here if you plan to attend.
  • On May 23rd I will be conducting an Encaustic Play Day Workshop at PhotoSynthesis in Manchester, CT. This is a great opportunity to learn some of the less technical and more serendipitous features of using encaustic wax, pigments and oil on the surface of a photograph. More information on this workshop can be foundhere.In addition to teaching Alternative Photographic Processes at Lesley University College of Art and Design I will be conducting a class in Alternative Processes at Central Connecticut State University which made a comeback as a course offering last Fall, this is a no prerequisite class and can also be audited. To get a feel for what happens in this course please take a look at the video I created with my husband, videographer Mike Zych.
