Having earned his BFA in painting from the University of Kansas (where he also minored in Art History), J. went on to do his MFA in painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. While most of his artistic practice is based in the tradition of painting J. also includes installations and conceptual work as part of his oeuvre. He began working as a curator shortly after earning his bachelor’s and has since worked on curatorial projects in Lawrence, KS, Seattle, WA, Philadelphia, PA and Wilmington, DE. J. Gordon currently resides in Wilmington where he works at the DCCA as the Curatorial Associate.
