Jessica Smith has a love of place. She lives on a mountain valley hillside in Southern Vermont where she and her husband raise and tend to their herd of jersey milking cows. They have a small family owned dairy and beef operation. Jessica is also and artist.
Jessica's work is focused in conceptual sculpture and abstract painting. Her art has always been an expression. It is how she processes the coming and goings.Her artwork is inspired by the seasons of change for the mountains that surround her farm as well as for the farm itself. She and her husband are dedicated to their farm and to the fragile state of the land comprising it. They are tenant dairy farmers and hope to keep these lands working and open in spite of growing challenges. Because this land is protected in party by their herd and their work with them, they seek to usher their farm into its next stewardship with the chance to remain working and conserved for the next 80 years or more.
In her artwork, Jessica highlights this unnamed beauty, as she see it, in its entirety.
Jessica's 8 piece collection on display in the library. All pieces are for sale.
Pictured piece "Dahlias", oil and collage, $300
