Lex Gjurasic is a visual artist from the rain-soaked Pacific Northwest currently living in Tucson, AZ. She has exhibited her work nationally for over 29 years, most notably in 2009 as a featured artist in the exhibition Kokeshi: Folk Art To Art Toy at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles CA. In 2017 her video, as part of the Miranda July archive Joanie 4 Jackie, became part of the permanent collection of the Getty Institute. Recently she has delved into public art, completing a mural with the city of Tucson’s downtown mural project, as well as a temporary immersive exhibition at the Scottsdale Public Library with Scottsdale Public Art. In 2018 she was nominated as a finalist for best visual artist in the Tucson Weekly, and in 2021 she was nominated for the Governor’s Arts Award. In 2021 she was invited to collaborate with the New Mexico-based art collective Meow Wolf as part of the permanent immersive experience convergence station in Denver, CO. Recently her solo exhibition, Radical Happiness, comprised of over 150 works created during the isolation of the pandemic, was on public display at the Chandler Center for the Arts in Chandler, AZ.
