About

Originally from Knoxville, Tennessee, Jennifer Stoneking-Stewart received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville in 2005, with an emphasis in Printmaking, and her Master of Fine Arts degree from Clemson University in 2007, also with an emphasis in Printmaking.

Her work is a response to her surroundings, drawing inspiration from personal experiences and observations in the rural southeast. Her recent work is focusing on the abandoned ruins and relics of lives past. Patterns, ghostly remnants, and precarious structures fill a landscape that has no sign of life.

She is very active in a variety of organization, such as College Art Association where she was Chair of the Student and Emerging Professionals Committee from 2011-2013, Southeastern College Art Conference, where she presents papers regularly, and the Southern Graphics Council where she has exhibited and participated in portfolio exchanges.

She has exhibited works nationally in both juried, group, and solo shows. Recent shows include From these Hills: Contemporary Art in the Southern Appalachian Highlights a selective and prestigious biennial juried exhibition at the William King Museum in Abingdon, VA; solo exhibition Packed Up at the City Gallery in Charleston, SC; Scripts and Systems, a national juried exhibition at the Lexington Art League in Lexington, KY; Artists on Location at the Knoxville Museum of Art in Knoxville, TN; Calling Home, a curated show sponsored by Spudnik Press at the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival in Chicago, IL; Fresh at ArtDimensions Gallery & Studio in St. Louis, MO; and Where We've Been at Leu Gallery in Nashville, TN.  She has prints in various private collections, archives, and public collections across the nation.
