First Friday Art Walk – October 2019

Topeka photographer, Jessica Mays specializes in what she calls impressionistic photography. Her often abstract and up-close view of the world shows ordinary subjects in extraordinary ways.

Stepping into the art community in 2016, Jessica took her photos to the next level by using digital editing. What she found was a whole new magical world of color, contrast, detail, and surprises. Each photo is carefully taken, then slowly edited to create a unique and intriguing piece of art without editing the contents. Jessica is a naturalist, believing what was in the photo when taken, should be there when printed.

She was named the 2018 Featured Artist of the Aaron Douglas Art Fair, which she is now the Art Coordinator, shown in several NOTO galleries and has artwork featured on banners on North Kansas Avenue.
