Tessa Heck: Way Too Slow, Way Too Fast

29 Sep 2023 - 23 Dec 2023

Exhibition: Tessa Heck: Way Too Fast, Way Too Slow

Exhibition Run: September 29-December 23, 2023

Opening Reception: Thurs. Sept 28, 5-7 pm. Free for members; non-members $10

Thurs. September 28, 4-5:30 pm: Her Stories: Women of the West in Art & History Panel Discussion with  artists Jessica Glenn, Amy Brakeman Livezey, Tessa Heck, and  Valentina Lapier + Margaret Davis, Director of the Northwest Montana History Museum and Alyssa Cordova, Director of the Hockaday Museum of Art.

Visual artist Tessa Heck’s contemporary paintings, murals and works on paper play with narratives around contemporary landscapes, motherhood, and often draws a hard line between beauty and grotesque in her portraiture. This exhibition features large-scale, contemporary landscapes and Heck’s interpretations and experience of motherhood. This exhibition at the Hockaday marks her first solo museum exhibition.

Heck received her BFA from Pacific Lutheran University and her MFA in Visual Studies from Pacific Northwest College of Art. Heck has shown work in galleries all across the West, and currently operates her own gallery, Good Luck Gallery in Kalispell, Montana, which focuses on showcasing emerging and mid-career artists with design-forward artwork
