Nashville, TN | Painting, Mixed Media

Georganna Greene is an artist and educator, primarily working in mixed media and found materials. She earned her BFA at the University of Tennessee Knoxville and her MFA in Painting at Boston University. Her work is motivated by poetics of materials, interrogating perception, and tensions between human design and natural belonging. She views art as an emotional and spiritual pathway through the mire of existential challenges.

Georganna has taught at Boston University, Tennessee State University, and Lipscomb University, where she is currently Visiting Studio Faculty. She recently attended Vermont Studio Center artist-writer residency and has been a visiting lecturer at Lipscomb University, visiting critic at Watkins School of Art, and panelist speaker at Coop Gallery, Red Arrow Gallery, and the Parthenon Museum Gallery in Nashville. She curated A Tender Harkening at Open Gallery, Lipscomb’s student-run satellite space. Her solo and two-person shows include Air Dry with Danielle Fretwell at Commonwealth Gallery, Boston University, and most recently, Limbic Slang at Red Arrow Gallery in Nashville. Group and juried shows include Emergence at CHA Art Space in Chattanooga (2023); Terre Firme curated by Mandy Rogers Horton at the Lipscomb University Hutcheson Gallery; Women in Abstraction curated by Destiny Palmer at New Art Corridor in Massachusetts; and Art of the South at Crosstown Arts Memphis, TN (2018). Georganna has been featured in Native, The Tennessean, and The Nashville Scene and her work is included in private collections across the United States. Georganna lives and works in Nashville, where she continues to teach, collaborate, and develop her multidisciplinary practice.

I currently focus on merging my natural and domestic environments with abstract techniques. Oscillating between narrative symbolism and action, my paintings are winged by drama, lighting, and tactility. Navigating interior and exterior spaces, I often juxtapose unlikely color schemes with traditional spatial arrangement. With each layer, each series of marks, events, actions and reactions, I gently nudge the work toward a saturated, emotional state. I seek visual and historical balance in my exploration of energy, renewal, memory, and familiarity.
