Gina Rios is an artist from San Jose, CA. Trained as a jeweler and sculptor, her work and interests center on the body in relationship. Through the combination of representational and abstract form she considers notions of bodily boundaries, transgression, transformation and discomfort.

She is the current curatorial fellow at Furthermore, an event and gallery space hosted by the MFA in Applied Craft + Design. Gina earned her Bachelor’s in Psychology at Lewis and Clark College in 2004 and returned to Portland after living in Oakland, CA to earn a Post Baccalaureate in Metals at OCAC in 2012. She has exhibited her work at the Wellington B. Gray Gallery at East Carolina University and Ash St. Project in Portland, Oregon. Her jewelry is part of the gallery shop collection at the Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco, The Oakland Museum of California and the Oregon Jewish Museum.
