An Art Department Zoom event. Join at https://zoom.us/j/98131613995. Terry Jenoure is a musician, visual artist, writer and educator born and raised in the Bronx, New York into a Puerto Rican and Jamaican family. Her goal is always to blend the many aspects of her creative work. A self-taught visual artist who works with assemblage fiber figures and watercolor illustrations, she began exhibiting in 2005 and her hand-stitched dolls are carried by the Smithsonian Institute gift shop and in private collections.  She began playing violin at age 7 and after 15 years of European Classical music study ventured out to become a protégé of Free Jazz pioneers Archie Shepp, Leroy Jenkins, Ornette Coleman, Marion Brown and John Carter. Over the past 40 years she has recorded extensively and performed internationally as an ensemble leader. Jenoure’s poetry, essays, and arts-based research have appeared in numerous publications. She served on the graduate faculty of Lesley University, Antioch College, and the University of Massachusetts over a twenty-year period, and has lectured throughout the U.S., South Africa, Colombia, Israel, Mexico and India. She was the Director of Augusta Savage Art Gallery at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst for three decades. Terry has masters and doctoral degrees in Education, and a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy. Learn more at terryjenoure.com.
