JUROR | Fran Forman will be the juror for “elsewhere”.   Fran studied art and sociology at Brandeis University, received an MSW in psychiatric social work, and then an MFA from Boston University.

She has held a succession of positions in the field of graphic design, book cover art and web design. Between professional life and raising two daughters, Fran continued to create her personal art, combining her illustrative and photographic skills with a passion for surrealism, paradox, illusion, assemblage, the non-human world, and the dislocations of time and place.

Fran is a Resident Scholar at the Women’s Studies Research Center at Brandeis, a recipient of several grants, and teaches digital collage at various colleges in Boston. Her work has been exhibited widely, both locally and internationally.  She has won many significant awards and her work appears in many journals, online blogs, several art books, and adorns the covers of many books.  Fran’s work is in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum (Washington, DC), the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.

She is represented by Pucker Gallery (Boston), AfterImage Gallery (Dallas), SusanSpiritus Gallery (Newport Beach, California), High Noon Art and Culture (Beijing), PatrickDaviesCA (London), and Photo Méthode (Austin, Texas).
