BIOGRAPHY

Georgia K. Strange received a B.S. in biological sciences in 1973 from Indiana University, as well as an M.S. in science education in 1977, and an M.F.A. in 1979.

After finishing her education, Strange held teaching positions at Centre College in Kentucky, Ohio State University, and her alma mater, Indiana University. After leaving her appointment at I.U., Strange was appointed Director of the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia.

Strange has served on the Board of Directors of the National Council of Art Administrators since 2005, and served as a visiting evaluator for the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. Since 1990, Strange has been a member of the Soho Gallery in New York. Strange has also voluntarily served with the Peace Corps in Liberia, West Africa and Greece, as well as studied in Italy. Her worldly immersion has enhanced and provided an extra foundation for her artistic practices and evaluation.

Among others, Strange's awards from I.U. include the James P. Holland Award for Exemplary Teaching and Service to Students, and the Herman Frederic Lieber Memorial Award in Recognition of Distinguished Teaching. Strange was also awarded a Masters Fellowship from the Indiana Arts Commission, and research grants from the Universities where she taught. Her sculptural work can be seen in venues across the country, but is exhibited in the Soho Gallery in New York.
