For Now, We Wait.
For Now, We Wait. is a series of lawn signs I have been creating since we received the stay-at-home order in response to the pandemic. The signs are a way for me to share brief messages with anyone who happens to wander by and to bring art out into the world at a time when museums and galleries are closed. This is an ongoing project. Follow along on Instagram: @jengrahamart

Guns: Loaded Conversations
My pieces Don't Shoot at Me and Trajectory Patterns will be included in the Guns: Loaded Conversations exhibition at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles April 22 - July 15, 2018.
An enormous divide exists between people who cherish their heritage of gun ownership and others who are concerned that guns contribute to the rising tide of gun violence. The pieces presented in this exhibition spark conversations relating to this important societal issue.
The work explores heritage and current cultural norms reflected in gun ownership and consider how people's personal experience with guns may influence their opinions. The exhibition plans to engage those of differing opinions to listen to each other in a thoughtful manner; and to investigate and encourage community initiatives that may inspire action in seeking solutions.

The Likes of Which You've Never Seen Before
The Likes of Which You've Never Seen Before is an installation of pennants and banners sewn from fabric and felt, each displaying a word or phrase habitually repeated by Donald Trump. The pieces hang all across each other and the space, mirroring the messy circus of repetitive language pouring out of the Trump administration each day. The work highlights how words can lose their meaning and impact when they are used so frequently as bombastic rhetoric, and how the repetition of these once ordinary words has created an unavoidable association with Trump whenever they are heard, no matter the context.
This work will be shown at Studio 2035 Gallery at 2035 Dickerson Rd in Reno, Nevada. The exhibit will run from March 10th-26th with an opening reception March 10th from 6-8pm. This exhibit is free and open to the public.
