Blinn Jacobs

As an abstract artist the basis of Blinn Jacobs work has been a dialogue between polygonal “shaped” constructs and the use of “painterliness” in regard to the interaction of color.

Blinn studied at the Yale School of Art as a special student for four years and received her MFA in painting from the University of Pennsylvania in 1993.

Her work as been in numerous one-person shows including, the University of Wyoming Art Museum in Laramie, WY, Kunstlerhaus, Schwandorff, Germany, Second Street Gallery in Charlottesville, VA, Creative Arts Workshop in New Haven and Chester Gallery, Chester, CT, in addition to many group shows including the Florence Biennale in 2011. She has received awards from the CT commission on the Arts, the Slivermine Arts Center, and fellowships from the Virginia Center for Creative Arts and the Oberpfalzer Kunstlerhaus in Schwandorf, Germany. Her work is in private and public collections, including the University of Wyoming Art Museum, the city of Scwandorf, Germany
