Artistic achievement

If you have a good news story like Jessie's, we'd love to hear

it! Let us know at editor@ongo.co.uk or on social media.

One of our tenants has recently been part of an art exhibition in

Barton.

Jessie has lived in one of our bungalows for six years, and

graduated with a first class honours degree from the Hull

School of Art and Design earlier this year.

Her exhibition, which opened at the Wilderspin National School

Museum on 3 October, was entitled 'Climate Change: Wetlands'

and focused on the Humber estuary wetlands.

She said: "I first got into the subject when I started

doing art at adult education classes. Before long, I began

visiting and researching the wetlands,

studying them in great detail.

"The three large paintings that

feature in the exhibition were all

created in my Ongo bungalow

during lockdown. I cleared a space

in the living room and, for several weeks,

I just painted. I was really grateful when

Jon at Wilderspin Art Group offered me the

exhibition space."

Jessie also has nine paintings as part of

a 'Practice in Place' exhibition at the

Humber Street Gallery in Hull. This

will run until 13 December, and entry is free.

She added:

Being a wheelchair user means

I encounter the wetlands from a

different perspective. I often paint

whilst sat on the ground, close to

the foliage, and I hope to capture

the external sights, sounds and

textures that I experience.
