Born in northern Minnesota, Gwen Avant has been drawn to quiet mark-making her entire life. She earned an MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, has exhibited her paintings, sculptures and installations in Minneapolis, Chicago, and New York, and has her work in many private and corporate collections. Gwen drove to Madison, WI in 1979, and has more or less made it her home.
