Elizabeth A. Jabar is a printmaker who explores a range of personal-political issues in her work including cultural identity, representation, equity and maternal ethics. Her practice is located in the studio, the classroom and the community where she co-creates collaborative and participatory projects with students, colleagues and community members. Elizabeth is the inaugural Director of Civic Engagement and Community Partnerships at Colby College in Waterville, ME, where she is designing an innovative program in community-based learning and active citizenship. She was formerly the Chair of the Printmaking Program and Director of Public Engagement at Maine College of Art. She received her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and her MFA from Pratt Institute. Her hybrid works on paper and cloth display a highly personal visual language that incorporates motifs from popular culture, folk art, religious traditions and textiles. Elizabeth’s printed objects and environments embody printmaking’s democratic tradition of resistance and collective power and reflect her commitment to art as a tool for social change.
