Jane Trigère was many things: a costume and set designer, almost an architect, an art bookbinder, a calligrapher, a cobbler, an eyeglass frame designer, a reporter and editor, a museum director, a teacher, an embroiderer, a painter, a gallerista, and most recently a published author, but always — an artist.
After closing her Deerfield Arts Gallery, which hosted 11 wonderful exhibits between 2014-1016…and after hosting a huge auction to benefit 7 very local non-profit agencies… Jane had hoped to next work on two projects: Becoming/Eve and about the act of ironing. Her last major endeavor was completing a children’s book titled What’s a Grandparent?
Please enjoy this tribute to her art, her passion, and her accomplishments.
May her memory be for blessing.
