Montana-based Jane Waggoner Deschner has been an exhibiting artist for nearly forty years; for twenty years her medium has been the found family photograph. Her work has been shown in numerous venues including Robert Mann Gallery, NYC; Fort Collins Museum of Art, CO; University of Michigan–Dearborn; Missoula Art Museum, MT; Churchill Arts, Fallon, NV; and other regional galleries and museums. Recently her work has been juried into two Kris Graves Projects photo books (“Solace” and “On Death”) and selected for online photography exhibits by Humble Arts Foundation, Lenscratch and Photo Trouvée. The Montana Arts Council chose her for an Artist Innovation Award in 2019–20. She has participated in numerous residencies across the US and in Canada, including at Ucross Foundation, The Banff Centre, Atlanta Center for the Arts, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and Santa Fe Art Institute. Time spent working in these unique places forms an important part of her practice. She earned an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts in 2001. After growing up in Kansas, she moved to Montana in 1977 where she continues to live. In addition to being a mixed media artist, she works as an exhibition installer, graphic designer, photographer, instructor and picture framer.
