WFH//BIF (Works From Home // Before I Forget)

This exhibit features a series of experimental textile compositions and assemblages that explore the intersections, overlaps, conflicts and disconnects of the artist’s matrilineal craft traditions and formal education in fine art.

She has participated in several reputable artist residencies and fellowships, including the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw, PL, the Ox-Bow School of Art, and Artist Residency, Saugatuck, MI. In 2019, JG served as the Hamblet Artist-in Residence at Vanderbilt University. Currently, she is Assistant Professor of Print and Extended Media at the University of Maryland, College Park.
