Fort Works Art will present "On the Continuum," artist Jessica Vollrath’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. Her first exhibition at FWA was in the Spring of 2018, and at the time she was a recent graduate student with her MFA from Texas Women’s University. At that point she had a studio in Dallas and had only herself to worry about providing for. Cut to 2022, and Vollrath is now a wife and a mother. She has moved her studio into her home to allow her to be with her children and to be able to continue her practice as a full-time working artist.

Vollrath’s new body of work consisting primarily of imagery of Magna tiles, the magnetic building toys used by kids to play and learn geometry, brings both a playful and an isolating feeling to the viewer. Referencing the changes in her life that she has experienced since becoming a mother and working at home through the pandemic, Vollrath turns the simple and mundane into something relevant and iconic.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through April 23.
