Fall 2019 Crossman Gallery Exhibitions

Jenie Gao
Claiming Space
October 14 – November 13
Artist Reception and presentation: October 15 from 5:00 - 7:00 pm

Jenie Gao is an installation artist and printmaker. Her work has been on display in local, national and international venues. She writes, “My work seeks to challenge and expand upon stories and story structures, so it makes sense to show this work in an academic environment. My hope for this installation is that it will challenge old story paradigms, while also offering affirmation that things can always change.”

She will be speaking and working with students to dig deeper into the art and expand the reach of the messaging.
