BIO

In her paintings in gouache on paper, Janet Gorzegno invents for contemplation glimpses of the human. The human head in profile recurs throughout Gorzegno's work as a symbol for conscious awareness, memory and the space of dreams. Gorzegno has exhibited her work nationally and internationally in numerous juried and invitational shows. Her current gallery affiliation is Bowery Gallery in NYC.

In addition to pursuing her own work in painting, Janet Gorzegno's keen interest in sacred art traditions has led her to study Icon writing (in the Russian-Byzantine tradition) and Tibetan Thanka painting. She is currently studying elements of sacred geometry through The Prince's Foundation School of Traditional Arts. Gorzegno has also been a fellow at several artist residencies, such as the Byrdcliffe Art Colony, Moulin à Nef in Auvillar, France, the Heliker-LaHotan Foundation, the Ragdale Foundation, The Hambidge Center for Arts & Sciences, the Millay Colony for the Arts, International Workshops in Assisi, Italy, and most recently the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts.

Gorzegno teaches drawing and painting as a professor of art for The University of Southern MS. She studied studio art at Drew University and the New York Studio School. She received her MFA in Painting from Yale University.
