The Bossier Arts Council is proud to present the art of Jess Van Alstyne in the Emerging Artist Gallery. The show will hang from November 2nd through November 26. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday from 11am-6pm and is free to the public. The artist will be available on November 2nd from 4:30-6:30 for questions. 

Jess a recent graduate from the BFA program at Louisiana Tech currently lives and works in Bossier-Shreveport area. When asked about her photography she responded "The photographs I make are broken down into their raw, most basic form with the use of a nude model. The constructions are manipulated and the color palette is controlled to symbolize the control I have attempted to seize in my life. Themes of confinement, loneliness, ritual, growth, decay, and struggle are found in the work to represent how difficult it is to find a sense of belonging in a space. The themes are portrayed in a delicate, microcosmic way to reinforce the subtlety of my emotions and relate to the viewer."
