Juror: Marilyn Ivy, Studio and Family Programs Coordinator, Kimball Art Museum

Marilyn Ivy, artist and educator, has received a BFA in Painting from Texas Christian University (1970) and a MA in Painting from Texas Woman’s University (2000.)  She has worked in the Fort Worth area for many years, first as an art teacher at L.D. Bell high School in Hurst, later as a Lecturer of Drawing and Art Education Coordinator at Texas Christian University from 2003-06.  Since 2007, Ivy has held the position of Studio and Family Programs Coordinator at the Kimbell Art Museum. Throughout this time she has continued her work as a practicing artist, exhibiting in galleries in the DFW Metroplex, as well as galleries in Framingham, Massachusetts, New York City, and Carouge, Switzerland.

In her painting Ivy examines Japanese symbols, animals, and ceremonies associated with parallel or contrasting concepts in narrative imagery.  These images have no points of reference in the sense of a landscape, but do allude to the Japanese reverence for nature.
