Jowita Wyszomirska was born in Poland and immigrated to Chicago with her family in the early 90s. With an interdisciplinary approach to drawing and projects, ranging from installations to video experimentations, she expands beyond the two-dimensional surface to explore the edges of tangible and intangible.
Her work has been featured in exhibitions at the Baltimore Museum of Art (Baltimore, MD), the VisArts (Rockville, MD), Foundry Art Centre (St. Charles, MO), The Temporary (Baltimore, MD), Maryland Institute of Art (Baltimore, MD), among others. She has received numerous honors and awards including the Board of Governor’s Award (b-grant) from the William G. Baker Jr. Memorial Fund in 2014, and numerous residencies including the Soaring Gardens Residency (Meshoppen, PA), Jentel Foundation (WY), Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts (NE), and International School of Painting, Drawing and Sculpture (Umbria, Italy).
Wyszomirska received her BFA from the Illinois State University and her MFA from the University of Maryland, College Park.
