Jennifer Wenker of Greenfield, Ohio, recently began her new position as creative director at Antioch College’s Herndon Gallery. She replaces former director Dennie Eagleson.
Wenker sees herself as both a naturalist and an artist, and comes from a background of collaboration in the creative process, as seen in the group she founded in Greenfield, SPARK! Artspace, a place for artists to come together and share projects and processes. She has also been involved in organizing the SOS Art show in Cincinnati and exhibits at the Marionist Environmental Education Center in Dayton.
Wenker’s return to the art world follows 20 years in the medical profession.
An extended article on Wenker will be in an upcoming article in the News.
