Robin Jebavy

Robin Jebavy is a Wisconsin artist who has been exploring glassware imagery in painting for many years. Jebavy draws inspiration from still life artists including the seventeenth-century Dutch Masters, Paul Cézanne, Giorgio Morandi, and Janet Fish; and contemporary figures like Josiah McElheny and Beth Lipman. She first experimented with the representation of glass at Bennington College, where she received her BA in visual arts and philosophy in 2004, and continued that work at the University of Iowa, where she earned her MFA in painting and drawing in 2008. Recent showings of Jebavy’s work include exhibitions at the Lynden Sculpture Garden, Portrait Society Gallery, and Iowa Contemporary Art. She was a 2014 Robert Johnson Fellow at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts and a recipient of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fellowship in the emerging category in 2016 that culminated in a 2017 fellowship exhibition at the Haggerty Museum of Art.
