Arts Center

  1. Jennifer Wester Exhibition

    February 8, 2020, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM @ Chamber Gallery

    Join Dallas-based artist and Mesquite vendor artist Jennifer Wester as she explores her intellectual quest to understand her life-long passion for ice skating. Jennifer holds a degree in the intersection of Computer Science and Fine Art from Yale University. Prior to becoming an artist, she competed at an Olympic-level for Team USA as a figure skater. An injury forced Wester's retirement from completive skating in 2010 and simultaneously began her intellectual quest to understand her life- long passion for ice skating--what most would consider an inhospitable environment with unimaginable physical challenges. This investigation led her to numerous revelations that have since fueled her artistic practice and projects. From light and shadow, to sound and the consequences of movement, Wester endeavors to breathe life into the micro-intrigues that entrance her spirit and have guided her life in unexpected, and too often unacknowledged ways.

    February 8, 2020, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Chamber Gallery

    Join Dallas-based artist and Mesquite vendor artist Jennifer Wester on her intellectual quest to understand her life-long passion for ice skating.

Prior to becoming an artist, she competed at the Olympic-level for Team USA as a figure skater.

This investigation led her to numerous revelations that have since fueled her artistic practice and projects. From light and shadow to sound and the consequences of movement, Wester brings otherwise unacknowledged factors in the shaping of her life to focus through her art.
