Solo photo exhibition for Kingsport native Jessany Bowman

Kingsport native Jessany Bowman's photographs will be on display in Bristol's CityMug Gallery.

The King College Photography Department is pleased to present a solo exhibition of Jessany Bowman’s photographic work. The exhibit will run from December 7th, 2012 through January 31st, 2013 at the CityMug Gallery at 629 State Street in Bristol, VA. The opening reception will be during Bristol’s popular Art D’Vine event on Friday, December 7th, 2012 from 6-9pm.


This show is the first solo exhibition of King College sophomore Jessany Bowman. “Here and There” is a series of self-portraits taken in the photographer’s home and in her hometown of Kingsport. The photographs external Jessany’s external and internal worlds and show she fits in her environment. Images include a moody backlit portrait of the artist as she sits at the grownup table with high heel shoes and a long exposure that has the artist disappearing into the wallpaper under the stairs. Other images are from Jessany’s extended travels.


The public is invited to experience Here and There: Self Portraits by Jessany Bowman at 629 State Street December 7th, 2012- January 31st, 2013.
