Luce Artist Talk with Jesse Shipley
January 20, 2016

Parmly Sisters

Thomas P. Rossiter's The Parmly Sisters

Very rarely does an artist get the opportunity to see their artworks come alive, but Jesse Shipley's designs do on theater stages throughout D.C.

On Saturday, January 30th the local costume designer will visit the Luce Foundation Center to discuss what it's like to see your art as a part of a live performance. This discussion will be the first in in our Luce Artist Talk series for 2016.

Since receiving her Bachelor's degree in theater from George Mason University, Shipley has been a costume designer and wardrobe specialist for some of D.C.'s most exciting theater productions. And she has had the opportunity to channel her creativity into creating costumes for several, including Cultural DC's Source Festival.

While at the Luce Center, Shipley will discuss the connection between fine art and performance-based art. And she will use as examples artworks now on display in Luce's open storage area, such as Thomas P. Rossiter's The Parmly Sisters. She will also bring in costumes from her own career to illustrate and highlight the connection between painting and costume design. At the conclusion of her talk, there will be a question and answer period.

Luce Artist Talks begin at 1:30 p.m. Beverages will be served until 3:30 p.m.
