They Grow Up So Fast Dept: When the intern who became an employee then becomes an art star.

Five years ago, we received a sweet and earnest letter from a Concordia student who had recently moved to Montreal from Victoria. (from the 'island') Due to her bookstore experience, we hired her as an intern, and then a paid intern, and then a PT employee, and now you know this person as our design manager Jessica Campbell, she with the quick wit. What you may not know about Jessica, is that she is a very talented painter. Last year she graduated from Concordia with a BFA, many accolades and awards and even admittance to the School of the Art Institute's MFA program! Luckily for us, she decided to stay in Montreal, and luckily for Montrealers she is working away in her studio when not in the office. Tonight at 427 at the Belgo building her new show, MAKING ROOM, opens, and it has already received press in the Gazette and the Mirror! Congrats, Jessica! Maybe one day, I'll be blogging about you appearing on your favorite television show.
