Upcoming Events at Russell Janis
April – May 2018
On exhibit April 7 – 28
For the first week of April, we have invited painter Wendy Edwards to make a series of monotypes on the press at Russell Janis. Works pulled freshly off the press will be put up on the walls directly, forming an exhibit on view from April 7th to the 28th.
More on Wendy Edwards monotypes here.
Folly Cove Follow Up
Curator: Annie Coggan
Auction § Event Saturday, May 12, 2018
Continuing our In the Steps of Folly Cove – Artist Print Invitational textile print exploration, each of the fourteen participating artists’ prints will be upholstered onto a specially selected, vintage chair on-site at Russell Janis. These unique chairs will be offered for sale through an online auction where the project can be followed on social media and pieces bid on as they are completed.
Along with pairing prints and chairs, we have asked guest curator Annie Coggan, architect, interior designer and artist, to design and create a soft-construction installation using the same Belgian linen prints.
Together these two parts can be viewed at a special event at Russell Janis on Saturday, May 12th. At the end of the event the auction bids will be finalized and chairs carted away!
Participating artists: Peter Bregoli, Abigail Doan, Jean Jacques du Plessis, Louise Eastman, Jonathan Fabricant, Elise Ferguson, Susan Martin, Joe Peppe, Mylene Pionilla, Wendy Small, Barb Smith, Russell Steinert, Janis Stemmermann and Andy Yoder
