Mount Mercy Professor Emeritus Jane Gilmor published a career monograph of her work as an Iowan artist: I’ll Be Back For The Cat in fall of 2012. In addition to local appearances, Gilmor made an appearance in New York City at A.I.R. Gallery alongside art historian Joy Sperling for a book signing in December.
Gilmor’s work captivates her audience with creations that “transcend persona” and draw people in through interactivity, playfulness and layering of care. Gilmor became professor of art at Mount Mercy in 1974 and received the prestigious professor emeritus title upon her retirement in May 2012. Her work has appeared in several publications across the country.
