Jennifer Dixon is a cross-disciplinary artist whose work has been exhibited locally and nationally. Her artwork involves introspective exploration through the creation of small intimate objects, drawings, prints, and books and external or outward-focused investigations of communities and places realized through the generation of larger public artworks.
Jennifer has long explored ways in which places are transformed through both the creation of ephemeral works that change over time, and permanent works that express untold histories of a site. Her process is close to that of an archaeologist – uncovering and discovering hidden layers and piecing together a narrative from the remains. In addition, she is committed to projects that allow art to be made accessible to the public in ways that are both subtle and unexpected.
Jennifer received an MFA in Sculpture from the University of Washington, a BFA in painting and drawing from Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and studied painting and drawing at the Leo Marchutz School in Aix-en-Provence, France. She has received a number of awards including Seattle Art Museum's Betty Bowen Memorial Special Recognition Award. She has also served as a member and co-chair for the Public Art Advisory Committee for 4Culture. In addition, her work as a teacher, advocate, and former board member for Path with Art informs her public practice through issues relating to social justice, equity, and arts access.
