Jennifer Grimyser 2006

I graduated in 2006 with a BFA in Photography and a Concentration in
Book Arts and immediately relocated to New York City. Maintaining a
consistent studio practice and exhibiting my work has been extremely
important to me and since graduation I have presented three
self-titled solo exhibitions at the Binnewater Arts Center Gallery
(Rosendale, NY), the Bronx River Art Center (Bronx, NY), and Solo(s)
Project House (Newark, NJ). My interdisciplinary practice of drawings,
photographs, performances, and prints has also been shown nationally
and internationally in numerous group exhibitions at the Kunstverein
Wolfsburg (Wolfsburg, Germany), Kunsthalle Exnergasse (Vienna,
Austria), Le Dicateur (Milan, Italy), Lesley Heller Workspace (New
York, NY), Center for Emerging Visual Artists (Philadelphia, PA),
Islip Art Museum (East Islip, NY), BRIC Rotunda Gallery (Brooklyn,
NY), and Bronx Art Space (Bronx, NY).

I was awarded a Studio Fellowship to the Women’s Studio Workshop, as
well as an Artist Fellowship from Vermont Studio Center. In addition,
I received an Artist-in-Resident Grant from the Women’s Studio
Workshop, funded by the NEA and the NYSCA, which enabled me to publish
a limited edition artist book that is now featured in several library
special collections including Walker Arts Center, Yale University,
University of Delaware, Rhode Island School of Design, Maryland
Institute College of Art, and Virginia Commonwealth University. To
expand my knowledge, practice, and community, I’m currently attending
the MFA program at Hunter College and will graduate in December 2013.

Over the last 7 years, I have worked in a variety of fields – as an
intern for art related non-profits, a fine art custom frame and
presentation designer, a commercial photographer for events and
products, and an artist assistant. While maintaining a daily studio
practice in New York City, I sell my art and work at multiple New York
galleries as an art handler and preparator. Check out more at
