Homebody Exhibit at Lake City Area Arts
March 12 @ 12:00 pm - April 10 @ 5:00 pm
Our next visual art show, Homebody, is a collaboration the Lake City Historical Society (LCHS) and the Woman’s Club of Lake City (WCLC) and will features two artists, Nicole Havekost and Jessica Kitzman. The exhibition will run from March 12–April 10, with a closing reception and meet the artists on Sunday, April 10.
Jessica Kitzman is an artist and art teacher living and working in Minneapolis, MN. Jessica holds a BFA from the University of Iowa and an MAT from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Primarily working in textiles and collage, her studio practice centers around the deconstruction of domestic relics and other found material as a mode of understanding inherited systems of growth, power, and identity. Jessica’s practice is rooted in play and reinvention, a natural act of resistance, resilience, and joy.
Nicole Havekost is an artist living in Rochester, Minnesota. Her first museum exhibition “Chthonic” was presented as part of the Minnesota Artist Exhibition Program at the Minneapolis Institute of Art in November, 2020. Havekost has exhibited extensively throughout the United States in both solo and group exhibitions. She is a 2020, 2018 and 2013 Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative grant recipient. She is a long-time educator, teaching at St. Mary’s University, Winona State University and Rochester Community and Technical College in Minnesota as well as small liberal arts colleges in Southeast Michigan. She is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Printmaking. She also earned her MFA in Printmaking at the University of New Mexico. Havekost did not realize she was a sculptor, and now considers herself a recovering printmaker.
