Jan Weiss will be our July Guest Artist! Join us for a reception on July 15th, 6 to 9pm! We will be sharing her exhibit, "California Living".
Jan Weiss is a northern California based artist working in a variety of mediums from acrylic on wood panel and canvas to digital renderings and typography. Jan received her BA in Fine Arts from Cal State East Bay and shows in galleries in the Bay Area. She is represented by several fine art publishers and online third party sites such as Image Kind, Great Big Canvas, Red Bubble, Zazzle and Artfully Walls.
Her work ranges from abstract landscapes, to modern design, typography and a clear activist influence to some of her work appealing to feminists and outspoken progressives everywhere.
Jan believes in the democracy of art; that art belongs to everyone and creates works that fall into a variety of prices making it available to a range of budgets and buyers. Most of the original works showing here are abstracts on wood panel – rendered in acrylic and then coated with a clear gel medium to make the colors pop. And several are landscapes focusing on the forests and deserts of California with three paintings reflecting coastal beach houses – emphasizing her love of the California coast.
Stay tuned for our August Guest Artist - Colleen Gianatiempo!!
Celebrate her art with us on August 19th from 5-7 pm
This collection of silk screen prints, Simultaneouly, is an expression of a “slice of life” while completing my Master of Fine Art degree at the Academy of Art in San Francisco (6 years in the making). While in the final throws of my MFA completion, I found myself having to manifest the capacity to create art on demand while I was pulled in many directions due to the many facets of my life. Simultaneouly, I was creating art while fullfilling my roles as a business owner, Mom, wife, friend, sister, aunt, accountant, home maker, entertainer, traveler, dance-soccer-gymnastics Mom, chef, car service, scheduler, seamstress, tutor, counselor, homeopathic practitioner, community connector, fundraiser, muralist and student. This collection of prints is the culmination of expressions of a “slice of my life” —each one holding its own unique imprint of a moment in time. A moment of inspiration that is fleeting in nature and inspired by the creative response to my chaotic and joyful life. Enjoy.
