Meet the Juror: Jean Gray Mohs
Jean Gray Mohs smiling.
Jean Gray Mohs is a North Carolina-born multimedia artist working in painting and sculpture. Mohs received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2002 and later her Master of Arts in Teaching from Georgia Southern University in 2008. Her work has been exhibited both locally and internationally. She has shown in multiple venues, such as the Contemporary Art Museum in Raleigh, the North Carolina Museum of Art, the Greenhill Gallery, and Meredith College. Her work has been broadcasted on Georgia Public Radio and published in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Southern Living, and Traditional Home. Her art also decorates hotels and homes. 

Mohs merges her lived experience with chronic illness and past disability into her art. Mohs’ mediums have included everything from forest moss to charcoal to acrylic to explore the emotional, physical, and psychological space in those moments of vulnerability, anxiety, fragility, and resiliency. Her work zooms in on ideas of strength, fragility, and balance, a world those with chronic illness know all too well. She describes art as something that chose her from the start. She intends to tell a story through her art, a story that includes not only herself but also others.
