April Exhibit: Fire & Rain by Tess Olympia
How to Use the Virtual Gallery
As we continue to navigate through the pandemic, we are excited to offer an alternative to in-person exhibits here in Juneau and beyond with this new virtual gallery space. You can view these exhibits on your smartphone, you just need to download the Exhibbit app from the app store (don't worry, it's free!).
Once you enter the gallery, take your time browsing the exhibit. Navigate through the gallery with your keyboard/mouse on your computer or with your finger if you're viewing on your smartphone.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
I am Tess Olympia. I create work mostly through pen and ink, some water colors and gouache. Recently, I have been testing the waters of digital art. The pieces I make tend to reflect my life and the world around me whether I intend them to or not. I prefer simple lines to create meaningful expression. While I have dreams of illustrating children’s books or a graphic novel, right now I am creating just for me. There is a lot of joy that comes from that, and a lot less pressure. I am in the ongoing process of self-reconceptualizing, meaning uncovering who I am after a long time of not knowing, to heal, to be grounded again in my own entirety.
I am a mom, a ukulele player, a lover of mountains, whales and edible plants.
