IN OUR SPACE
June 8th, 6-11 pm
Within the queer community it is necessary to work with one another, to strengthen and support each other, so that all can succeed. The connections we make are integral to who we are and how we see the world. This has shaped how Jessica Marie Mercy creates. It has pushed her to produce art that serves the queer community, and has drawn her to the spaces we inhabit.
By immortalizing the spaces where we gather safely, Jessica Marie Mercy invite’s others to treat them with the reverence they deserve, and so rarely receive. “In Our Space” brings visibility to queer spaces and allows for detailed examinations of the physical, emotional, and spiritual spaces we thrive in.
Within her prints, she attempts to bridge the gap between her printmaking and queer communities, to create accessible fine art, and begin a dialogue around identifying safe spaces.
