About this Event
23 University Dr, Northfield, Vermont 5663https://www.norwich.edu/museum
Jennifer’s collection of abstract work is meant to convey current states of mind, visually encapsulating the ebbs and flows of manic depression, along with capturing moments otherwise dulled due to short term memory loss. Jennifer’s work is a statement about mental health and the importance of self-care and healing. A self-taught artist since 2018, Jennifer works in mental health with children where the importance of coping strategies is paramount to encourage growth and self-regulation. By integrating and regenerating feelings and moments to canvas, Jennifer hopes to bring awareness about the importance of education around mental illness and destigmatization. Born in Berlin, VT, Jennifer received her education in Central Vermont and began school at Norwich University at 16 years old, ultimately graduating with highest honors at 20. Jennifer is among a long line of family involved with Norwich, including her grandfather, Pop Bryan, who was a Professor of Geology; grandmother, Vivian Bryan, long time librarian; Shawn Bryan, class of 70 and MBA class of 2003; Helen Bryan, Housing Officer and Adjutant for the Commandant’s Office for 15 years; and Rachel Bryan, class of 1999.
