Artist Talk : Cultivated on Dry Land
August 25 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Jennifer Hill is a studio artist in Austin TX. Previously she lived on The Garden Isle of Kauai, inspired by the luscious flora and textures of the sea. Her artwork has appeared in numerous exhibitions, including the notable Hawaii’s Modern Masters in Waikiki and the more recent Ciò Che Muore in Rome, Italy. In Texas she has exhibited widely including with the Studio Gallery at Brookhaven College, the Dougherty Arts Center, Atelier 1205, Dimension Gallery, the Peoples’ Gallery at Austin City Hall, and has appeared at unique sites such as the NeillCochran House Museum.
Jennifer earned an MFA in ceramics from Utah State University, Logan, and a BFA from Southern
Methodist University in her home city of Dallas. Between degree programs Jennifer attended the University of Florida, Gainesville for a post-baccalaureate study. Following graduate school she became the artist-in-residence at Chester Springs Studio in Pennsylvania, later moving to Oregon to teach at Portland Community College. An opportunity to live in Hawaii convinced her to leave the mainland for several years. Jennifer and her husband now live back in her home state closer to family. Currently she maintains a studio practice in Austin and teaches at area art centers including The Contemporary Austin’s Art School at Laguna Gloria. Freshly returned from an artist residency in Rome, Italy, Jennifer looks forward to creating new work inspired by this exciting journey.
