Genevieve Cohn (b. 1992) grew up in rural Vermont and received her MFA in Painting from Indiana University. Her paintings draw from a past, present and future that is both historical and imaginative to depict communities of women. The artist’s compositions use imagery and ideologies drawn from the Women’s Land Army of World War I and II, as well as female separatist communities, fairy tales and literary fiction. Cohn’s work acknowledges a world—neither past nor future, but somehow both—where female power is derived from collaboration, self-endowed agency and connection with the natural world. 

Cohn has participated in residencies at the Fiore Art Center, The Vermont Studio Center, The Ragdale Foundation, and AiRGentum. She is the winning recipient of the Hopper Prize. Her work has been featured in New American Paintings, Create Magazine, and Art Maze Magazine. Genevieve has exhibited work in New York City, Boston, Chicago, and London, among other cities. She is currently living and working in Boston, MA where she teaches at Wellesley College.
