Currently On Exhibit:
Alexandra Jordankova presents her artwork from October 1 to 31.
Hailing from Boston, MA, Alexandra Jordankova is a visual artist and graphic designer with a particular fondness for abstract landscapes and immersive textures. Her work is eclectic and diverse, yet her will to experiment with different materials and creative process acts as a common thread-line, as the instinct and emotional eloquence of her artworks is often the forefront.
Born in former Czechoslovakia, Alexandra has always been fascinated by art, a passion that led her from early watercolors and tempera paintings to formal education and training in fine arts. In spite of a momentary lapse (Alexandra was focusing on getting her PhD in psychology), art took back the main spot in her life. Alexandra is now a SMFA certified Graphic Designer, professional artists and media creator, with a particular focus on abstractionism and photography.
