Biography

Jenne M. Currie, the daughter of two painters, Ethel Magafan and Bruce Currie, was born and raised in Woodstock, NY. She moved to New York City to study at the Art Students' League and soon after began fabricating welded steel sculptures and doing bronze casting in Pietrasanta, Italy. In later years, she began working with painted wooden wall sculpture, fusing cut and assembled shapes with her love of color. Currently she alternates between this medium, two dimensional painted paper collages and straight up painting on wooded panels. For the past few years, Jenne has conducted workshops for adults at the Art Students' League of NY and the Woodstock School of Art. Jenne has exhibited her work in numerous Manhattan venues such as the National Academy, Seligmann Galleries, Carnegie Hall and Salander-O'Reilly Gallery as well as Silvermine Guild in New Canaan, Ct., Boscobel Manor in Garrison, NY and the Schenectady Museum of Art. Jenne is currently represented by the Buster Levi Gallery in Cold Spring, NY.
