Genevieve Cohn is a painter and educator, originally from Vermont. She received her MFA in Painting from Indiana University and her BA in Art and Culture & Communications from Ithaca College.
Her paintings walk a line between the real world and a world shaped by emotional perceptions. She draws from both a historical and imaginative past, present and future to project possible communities of women. Utilizing imagery and ideology from the Women’s Land Army and female separatist groups, as well as inspiration from literature and contemporary culture, Genevieve’s paintings champion the full humanity and nurturing rationality of successful communities.
Her work was recently included in the Every Women Biennial in New York City and was featured in The New York Times and Artnet. Her most recent solo exhibition, Dog Women, God Women took place at the Waldron Arts Center in Bloomington, IN. Genevieve was included in the New American Paintings 2019 Review: Part 2 at Steven Zevitas Gallery in Boston and Rosy-Fingered Dawn at Pace University in New York City. Genevieve has been an artist-in-residence at The Fiore Art Center, The Vermont Studio Center, The Ragdale Foundation, and AiRGentum in Seville, Spain. Her work has been featured in New American Paintings, Create! Magazine, and Art Maze Magazine. She is a winning recipient of The Hopper Art Prize.
