Margaret Jacobs

As a sculptor, Margaret works with “contradicting materials … primarily steel, pewter and natural materials like deer hair, porcupine quills and leather.” As she says about her work “I am not only speaking about cultural heritage and significance but I am also exploring the relationships between man and nature.”

Margaret Jacobs received her BA in Studio Art from Dartmouth College. There she was involved in the theater program, which played an important role in her path towards sculpture. She has held several artist residencies including at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT where she received a Native American Fellowship through the Harpo Foundation. Jacobs has shown throughout New England including at SPA (Studio Place Arts) in Barre, VT; Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH; and ArtisTree Gallery in South Pomfret, VT.

Jacobs is also very involved in her community—she currently acts as Secretary on the Board of Directors for CATV (Community Access Television) in White River Jct., VT; has served as a Grant Panelist for the Piscataqua Artist Advancement Grant in Portsmouth, NH; and acted as a VPR Commentator for a story on vintage war poster imagery. She currently works as the Exhibition Director at AVA Gallery and Art Center in Lebanon, NH.
