NCCA-Artsplace Exhibit: Stroschin 3

February 3 through 28
Stroschins 3 – Jane, Lauren and Brian Stroschin
Reception: February 3, 5:30-7:00 p.m.
Jansma Gallery at NCCA-Artsplace,
13 E. Main St., Fremont.

Jane, Lauren, and Brian Stroschin are excited to present “Stroschins 3.” As Jane has known she wanted to be an artist since the age of four, she included her passion and talent for art and creativity in raising her children. The house was always filled with paints, brushes, pencils, clay, picture books, and art history books. Now that Lauren and Brian have added their own style and experiences to their art, and Jane’s direction and talent has continued to grow and evolve; the three of us are proud to exhibit our individual styles together.

Brian’s abstract compositions and characters inspire the viewer’s creative interpretations. Lauren’s photos beautifully capture her worldwide explorations and deep respect for our natural world. As an award winning photographer and painter, Jane’s paintings of abstract background and high realism subject matter will stimulate both your creativity and appreciation of the grace of nature. We hope you will enjoy this unique family’s three styles of artistic expression.

Lee Ann Frame-Traveling Marbles II

Lee Ann Frame

From the beginning when humans would put mud, blood or paints on their hands and make prints upon walls of caves to record their stories or to communicate an event, printmaking has been an important tradition. We’ve come a long way from those days to engraving metal plates, carving wood or linoleum blocks, creating lithographs and screens to make our prints. The one thing that ties them together is the ability to make multiples, to share an image more than once, to put art in the hands of many. This exhibit will combine multiple methods of printmaking, with the talents of regional contemporary printmakers to show how the tradition continues in contemporary times.

Alynn Guerra, Lee Ann Frame, Ladislav Hanka, Johanna Paas, Olivia Timmons, Cindi Ford, Annie Wassmann, Andrew Jagneicki and Chad Pastotnik will be featured in this printmaking exhibition.
