Sunday, February 5th, from 2-4 p.m., the North Central Louisiana Arts Council (NCLAC) and Crescent City Coffee will present “Assembling Intimacy” an exhibition of recent work by regional artist Bess Bieluczyk.
Join NCLAC and artist Bess Bieluczyk, in a look into domestic life captured through the use of photography. When asked about her artwork Bess replied “I’ve been living in the same house for over four years, the longest I’ve lived in one place since I moved out of my parents’ house. Being settled, especially with a partner, has forced me to deal with my anxieties about domesticity and “settling down”.”
Bess’s work is both soft and feminine but at the same time inquisitive and engaging. Although tied to such intense questions of happiness and contentment it demonstrates a playful look into daily life and activities.
Bieluczyk was born and raised in the Connecticut suburbs. She received her MFA in Photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design and her BA from Sarah Lawrence College. She is an active, exhibiting photographer and an arts administrator at Louisiana Tech University.
