Christina Juran is a New Orleans-based artist. She graduated with honors in the visual arts program at Carleton College in Minnesota and studied at Kibbutz Kfar Hanassi Art Institute in Israel. She has lived and worked primarily in New Mexico and New Orleans in her young adult years, California post-Katrina, and has been back home in New Orleans for the past four years where she maintains a studio and helped to establish the New Orleans Art Center where she is the Art Director. Working in the studio and plein air, her paintings and sculpture revolve around the study of the human figure, the natural world, landscape, seascapes and interior spaces. Christina has exhibited in group exhibitions in New Mexico, California, Minnesota, New Orleans, and recently Mississippi. In 2017 she had a solo exhibition, “Root, Source of Inspiration” at the Swedish American Museum in Chicago. Her work is in private collections locally, nationally and internationally.
