Judy Jensen

Jensen's artistic process is sculpturally-shaped reverse paintings on glass with mixed media, mounted on board.

She has exhibited widely. Solo venues include: eight exhibits with New York’s Heller Gallery, the Galveston Arts Center, The Houston Center for Contemporary Crafts, Brendan Walter Gallery in Santa Monica, and Heller Gallery in Palm Beach. Group exhibitions include Gerald Peters Gallery in New York, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Atlanta’s High Museum, the New Delhi Biennale, Chicago’s Navy Pier, The Detroit Institute of Arts, and The Hokkaido Museum of Modern Art in Japan.

An NEA Fellowship Grant recipient, her works are in numerous public and private collections, including the Royal Ontario Museum, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Corning Museum of Glass, The Akron Art Museum, The Racine Art Museum, McDonald’s Corporate Headquarters Art Collection, SAFECO Corporate Art Collection, and the Washington Art Consortium.

From 2003-2013, Jensen worked almost exclusively on commissions. But since 2013, Jensen has been involved in a project replacing 19th-century Burmese glass paintings, destroyed in an earthquake, in a Buddhist temple in Thailand. The paintings depict the Buddha’s life and previous incarnations.

In 2013, she was awarded a grant from Bangkok’s James H.W. Thompson (Jim Thompson) Foundation in support of the project. In 2014, she was designated Creative Ambassador to Thailand by the City of Austin. Lectures about the project include Bangkok’s National Museum, The Crow Collection of Asian Art in Dallas, and the Siam Society in Bangkok.
