In this episode of Off the Wall, AAC’s Curator of Exhibitions Blair Murphy talks with AAC resident artist Jen Noone about her latest work. Although Jen has worked primarily in sculpture in the past, this new body of work channels her interest in materials and material exploration into two dimensions. This experimental approach to materials builds on the work that was included in Sort of, Kind of, Almost, Jen’s solo show, which took place at AAC in the summer of 2019.
Jen Noone joined AAC’s resident artist program in 2018. She received her BA in art education from Saint Joseph’s University (Philadelphia, PA) and her MFA in studio art from American University (Washington, DC). Noone’s work has been featured in The Washington Post and she was highlighted in Interview Magazine’s Artists on the Verge profile series. Previous solo and group exhibitions include Terrault Gallery (Baltimore, MD), Ground Floor Gallery (Brooklyn, NY), WAS Gallery (Bethesda, MD), American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center (Washington, DC), Waddell Gallery (Sterling, VA), Site:Brooklyn (New York, NY), and Connersmith (Washington, DC). She is currently an assistant professor of studio art at Northern Virginia Community College.
