Flux Studios welcomes Jessica Beels

If you have ever come out to the Gateway Arts District Open Studio Tours, you would know that adjacent to the Washington Glass School are some amazing artist studios.

Flux Studios, headed by celebrated ceramic artist Novie Trump, has announced that mixed media artist Jessica Beels will be joining the studio as their newest resident artist.

Jessica works in a number of materials, sculptural beads, paper, and ungalvanized steel armatures. Her work was featured at the Smithsonian Craft Show and at the Torpedo Factory in Old Town Alexandria.

Jessica has talked of using the change in studio space to allow her to take her work to a larger scale. Ms Beels said that she should be all settled in by the end of the next month or so.

We welcome Jessica to the ‘hood – and look forward to seeing alot of great new work from her!
