At Play: Works by Tom Jessen

Waterville Creates

Ticonic Gallery

May 24–August 26, 2024 (closed Tuesdays and Federal Holidays)

93 Main Street, Waterville, Maine

Ticonic Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition At Play: Works by Tom Jessen in collaboration with the Colby College Center for the Arts and Humanities annual theme of PLAY.

Adopting an open-armed approach to art-making, Tom Jessen’s work invites viewers to become active participants and entertain the idea of unknown outcomes. By combining themes of play and mystery, together with the elements of chance, select works in this exhibition will be reimagined based on group interactions. Whether you are an experienced or aspiring artist or an artist-at-heart, all are invited to bring their creativity, curiosity, and sense of play to shape works in this exhibition.

Through a series of public events grounded in structured game play, participants will dismantle, construct, and reconstruct pieces while immersing themselves in a group art-making process.  No experience necessary!
