Jessie Thetford's "Homage to the Drip," as well as more sombre portraits in the show, reveal an educated artist with a great depth of insight into the human condition, as well as a flair for the strong, bold use of light and dark, figuratively and literally.
Her work stares back at the viewer and makes one speculate. One viewer walked in the door and said "My God, the last King of Hawaii!" I see someone else.
