ABOUT

JENNY WELLS

ARTIST, PHOTOGRAPHER, CURATOR

BASED IN MINNEAPOLIS, MN 

I am an artist, curator, photographer, and gallery manager based in Minneapolis, MN. For the past eight years, I have managed an international design and illustration gallery, Light Grey Art Lab, and led creative residency programs around the globe including Ireland, England, Japan, Iceland, Norway, and National Parks throughout the United States. 

I create work inspired by nature, science, microorganisms, and sublime imagery. In the past few years, I have also delved into photography as a way to capture Macro/Mirco and sacred spaces.

If you are looking to collaborate, hire for gallery consultation, management, or a photography project, send me a note: jennywellsstudio@gmail.com
