About the event
Allied Arts is proud to be joining up with local artist Jessica Whitehead for her "Seeking Asylum" exhibit! Come by the Marlor House to lay your eyes on some of the most beautiful photography you'll ever see!
Jessica Whitehead is a resident of Milledgeville, Georgia, and a GCSU Alumni. She previously worked in the mental health field for over 13 years, and she has spent the last 9 years working in the court system, first in Juvenile Court, and now in Superior Court as a judicial assistant to Superior Court Judge Terry N. Massey of the Ocmulgee Judicial Circuit. In 2022, she decided to take up photography as a hobby and began exploring the grounds of Central State Hospital. Jessica feels a special connection to the hospital and to those suffering from the difficulties of mental health diagnoses. She hopes her photography inspires others to see the beauty in the imperfect and encourages others to become advocates for those whose voices are muffled by suffering.
Jessica is and is mom to Jayden and Izabella, as well as her three beloved Dachshunds. She is also recently the winner of the Art of Georgia - Landscapes contest. Her photo of Tallulah Gorge was chosen to hang at the State Capitol!
The Marlor House Art Center will be open M – Th from 10 AM – 3 PM throughout the exhibit. A $10 donation is suggested (but not required) for adults, $8 for seniors, and $5 for children when visiting the gallery.
