New American Paintings description of my work. Paintings were selected as Juror's pick.
I recently was accepted in to New American Painting's West issue #162. The curator was Tyler Blackwell, formerly the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Associate Curator at the Blaffer Museum of Art and now the Curator of Contemporary Art at the Speed Museum of Art. I am honored to have been named one of two "Noteworthy Artists" within the issue.

I have a solo exhibition at Auburn University and am looking forward to visiting and giving a talk in January.
I was recently invited By Saint Maison to be included in Archive, a publication based in Tokyo. There are lots of great folks involved and each artist handwrote answers to an interview which makes the reading experience really special and fun. Digital or print copies can be purchased on their site, if you'd like.
My work has been included in the West #132 Issue of New American Paintings.

I recently had a great conversation with David Linneweh for his Podcast, Studio Break. We talked about traveling while growing up, sketchbooks, my love for 8 x 10's, and many other things. If you're interested, give it a listen: http://studiobreak.com/jessica-simorte/
As I continue preparing for upcoming solo exhibitions, I am putting together a mailing list. If you would like to be updated (very occasionally) on shows, studio related news, etc. please leave a comment under the "contact" section and I will gladly add you. Thank you!
