Art, Women and Culture Salon, Third Thursdays at The Armory Center presents Jackie Tufford

Art, Women and Culture Salon: Jackie Tufford
Third Thursdays at The Armory Center
March 19, 6:30-8:30pm
$10 fee to attend

Jackie Tufford will be presenting her work at the next Art, Women and Culture Salon at the Armory Art Center on Tuesday, March 19. She is an interdisciplinary artist and curator from New Jersey currently residing in South Florida.

Jackie’s interests in art, fashion and costume have transformed into the sculptural narratives she creates. Through the balance of performance, costume and installation, her work represents characters that are awkwardly faced with trying to adapt to a situation or to their surroundings. Her work has become more specific and gendered, discussing domesticity, connectivity and the unspoken expected social roles of women.

Jackie has earned two Bachelor’s degrees in Art History and in Fine Art from Florida Atlantic University, and a Master’s degree in Fine Art from Pennsylvania State University. Her work has been exhibited all over South Florida from galleries in Tampa to Miami. Most recently, one of her designs won best of show at the Fashion ARTillery, a wearable art fashion show at the Armory Art Center.

Jackie is currently an adjunct art and design instructor at Florida Atlantic University, Jupiter, FL and at Palm Beach State College, Lake Worth, FL.

ART, WOMEN, and CULTURE SALON, coordinated by Elle Schorr, meets at The Armory Art Center on the third Tuesday of each month from 6:30-8:30 pm, in Studio 101 in the two story building behind the garden. There is a $10 fee to attend. If you’d like to bring some snacks or drinks to share, that would be much appreciated.
