Furman University in Greenville, SC, Features Works by Jen Blazina

Furman University in Greenville, SC, is presenting the exhibit, A Collection, featuring mixed media works by Jen Blazina, on view in the Roe Art Building’s Thompson Gallery, through Mar. 23, 2012.

Originally inspired by vintage suitcases found in thrift stores, the exhibition investigates what is held dear and private to someone as they travel. From fabricating opaque ceramic cases to translucent glass cases, Blazina says the installation has voyeuristic sense leaving the viewer to wonder what is hidden and revealed about someone’s life.

Blazina resides and has a studio in Philadelphia, PA, where she is a working artist showing in solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally. She received her MFA in printmaking from Cranbrook Academy of Art, her BA from Sarah Lawrence College in New York and her BFA, cum laude, from the State University of New York at Purchase College. She is a professor of Fine Arts at Drexel University.
