Jeana Eve Klein’s recent studio practice has coalesced around the broad theme of value: how society in general assigns value (or worthlessness) to objects, and how the art world, specifically, assigns value to works of art, craft and design. Klein earned an undergraduate degree from North Carolina State University and MFA from Arizona State University. Her work has been exhibited internationally, including recent solo exhibitions at William King Museum (Abingdon, VA), Jasper Arts Center (Jasper, IN), Rehoboth Art League (Rehoboth, DE), College of Lake County (Grayslake, IL), and Cary Arts Center (Cary, NC). Klein lives in Boone, North Carolina with her awesome husband and two super cute kids, and is Associate Professor of Fibers in the Art Department at Appalachian State University.
