GOOD HERB

Fontanelle Gallery is lucky to host the first solo show of the talented and prolific Jess Hirsch, whose work I am lucky to have a career-spanning collection of in my apartment... full disclosure, we're friends. Her personal fight for physical wellness and resulting explorations into the world of alternative treatment - historical, mythical, homeopathic and otherwise - are documented and mused upon in the thoughtful, whimsical and totally covetable drawings, sculptures and art objects that amass Good Herb, running for the month of October. Coinciding with this show is her launch of the Portland Healing Project with Mariah Maines, a community resource for alternative healthcare information, which will feature a workshop at Fontanelle on October 17th. The show is so good that these are the rejects:


P.S. Bring money for a dimebag...
