About the event
Join us for the opening reception of "My body is my home," from 5-9pm!
This show is a depiction of two artists' interpretations of what it feels like to find home in your body, whether it be comfort or discomfort. This show is an homage to feeling vulnerable, playful, dysphoric, and euphoric in your body. Our work invites the viewer to take into consideration their own body in this space and other spaces they occupy.
About the Artists:
Annaliese Cole-Weiss (they/them) is a ceramicist living and working in Missoula, Montana. Having grown up moving many times, they consider many places to be home, including the mountains of Western North Carolina, the swamps of Southern Louisiana, the California Central Valley, and the Colorado Rockies. Annaliese holds a BA from Colorado State University and conducted their Post-Baccalaureate study at the University of Montana. Their work examines memory, dimensionality, and notions of mutable truths as they relate to queerness and the body.
Tessa Hoenig (she/her) is a ceramic sculptor and illustrator dedicated to creating objects that feel abundant, textural, and overwhelming, physical dreamscapes of her overactive imagination. Originally from Fort Collins, Colorado, Tessa obtained her BFA in Pottery in 2020 from Colorado State University. After graduating, she moved to Missoula, Montana and was granted a 2 year position as a Post-Baccalaureate student at The University of Montana. Tessa is currently a long term resident at the Clay Studio of Missoula.
