Jane Garver Foley
Contemporary Talks presents a conversation series with our artists in the Studio Artist Program.
To kick off this exciting new program, we are inviting Jane Garver Foley—whose work is featured on the Studio Artist Program wall through July 30—to present about her current body of work and her experience with artist residencies.
Our Studio Artist Program supports local working artists by providing subsidized studio space and by fostering a collaborative environment supportive of the creative process. The Studio Artist Wall is generously supported by Georgia State University, The Ernest G. Welch School of Art & Design.
Jane Foley has created public sound sculptures for the Architecture Triennale in Lisbon, Portugal and La Friche Belle de Mai in Marseille, France with Zurich-based Sound Development City, as well as composed sounds that played in taxicabs throughout the 5th Marrakech Biennale in Morocco. In Atlanta, they have created works for the High Museum, Flux Projects, The Atlanta Contemporary, and the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport, among others. Foley currently teaches art at Georgia State University and Emory University while raising a son who is also an artist and assists on many projects.
