Erika B. Hess will be the August resident artist at Micro Art Space in Cleveland, OH. Her residency will be followed by a solo exhibition, AUTO RESPOND: Out of the Office on August 15 at 78th St. Studios.
Hess is a painter who lives and works in Michigan. She received her MFA in 2009 from Boston University. Her paintings explore the representation of the middle-class and women through her use of color, abstract forms and pop culture symbols. Most recently her work was selected by Carl Belz, former Rose Art Museum Director, to be included in Studio Visit Magazine and exhibited in “EcoMyths” at Last Projects, Los Angeles. Hess currently works at University of Michigan Stamps School of Art & Design.
