Drawings of mixed-media by Jesse Pearson will be showing at Los Bagels for the months of February and March. Born in rural Minnesota, Pearson completed BFA degrees in photography at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, MN (2002) and an MFA in Photography and Art History at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque (2006). He uses drawing to navigate experiences and to create narratives existing between fact and fiction. His images are based on  memories, family history, and desires and fantasies from adolescence to adulthood. Pearson grew up hunting with his father, and learned about animal sexuality, human survival, and the dynamic of predator and prey at a young age.
 
"I do collaborate with my twin brother, says, Pearson,"however the work I will be showing at Los Bagels is just my own specifically about my relationship with New Mexico coming from Minnesota. "

A reception for the artist will be held during Arts Alive on Saturday, February 7th, from 6-9 p.m. Los Bagels is located at 403 Second Street, Eureka.
