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
