Jessica Dickens Featured in CT Women’s Art Show

Watkinson School, a private school in Hartford, CT, is pleased to announce that Technology & Communication Support provider Jessica Dickens has been selected to be a featured artist in the Connecticut Women’s Art Show on April 24, 2022. In its fifth year, the showcase is curated by CT Philanthropist Margaret Patricelli and is presented in her home as a benefit to the Hartford Public Library.  

Jessica is an accomplished jewelry artist and designer whose creations are distinct. She describes, “my jewelry collection is inspired by abstract, organic designs that are bold and unique. I create jewelry by marrying colors and textures that seem an unlikely pairing to create eclectic designs that capture attention. Each wearable art piece becomes an extension of the person and speaks to the unique beauty we all possess.”  In addition to doing a significant amount of custom designs for individual clients, Jessica’s work has been featured on Jewelry Television (JTV) Jewel School, Belle Armoire Jewelry Magazine, fashion show runways, and arts and crafts festivals. She recently published “The Lone Wolf Jewelry Designer’s Guide to Business Art and Life.”

The other artist featured in the 2022 show is abstract painter and alumni parent Sandy Welch. Both artists are giving a portion of all proceeds from the show to the Hartford Public Library. Attendance is by invitation only.

Because of COVID-19, the showcase last happened in 2019 and sculptor Marilyn Parkinson Thrall was the featured artist.
