Jenna Wright graduated from Millersville University of Pennsylvania with a BFA focusing on ceramics and a BSE in art education. She received her MFA from The University of Texas at San Antonio. Primarily a ceramic sculptor, she often incorporates mixed media into her works.
Jenna says her work starts with the home and the dense suburban environment of her native New Jersey. “The essence of intimacy and abstraction of the sociological home is what I debate. The molding of an individual, the formation (interior/exterior) of a home, and the shaping of a landscape all have common ideals in our society. I am exploring how conventional social pressures impact our understanding of home, domestic comforts, and objects, as well as introducing personal subject matter.”
Jenna was an artist-In-residence at Montgomery College in Silver Spring, Maryland. Most recently, she had a solo show at VisArts Center in Rockville, Maryland, showcasing work incorporating a variety of materials. She has also participated in juried group exhibitions such as Women’s XXChange in Baltimore, Maryland, and Emulsion in Washington, D.C.
Jenna will be with HCCC for the month of July, 2017. For more information, please visit https://www.jennawrightart.com/about/
