Assistant Professor of Studio Art
Office Location: 338 Fine Arts Center
Jamey Hart received his BFA in Painting from the Cleveland Institute of Art and his MFA in Painting with a concentration in Contemporary Art History from the University of Houston. Selected solo exhibitions include “Mere” at Gray Contemporary in Houston, TX, “And” at Automat Gallery in Philadelphia, PA, and “Slow Pace Time” at Front Gallery in Houston, TX. Hart's research is focused on how we mistake objects as facts within discourse. In his practice, a painting takes root in language, and through the process of making, seeks a wordless object. His work has earned institutional support and recognition from Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Houston Arts Alliance, The Hopper Prize, Vermont Studio Center, and The Massachusetts Cultural Council. Hart has exhibited in group exhibitions at Sarah Brook Gallery, Los Angeles, CA; Gray Contemporary, Houston, TX; Blaffer Art Museum, Houston, TX; Gallery Also, Los Angeles, CA; Studio E Gallery, Seattle, WA; Marquee Projects, Bellport, NY, and others. His work has been included in publications such as New American Paintings, Reciprocal Magazine, ArtMaze Magazine, and Lula Japan.
