About Face Hosts Jan Serr Opening Reception 9/18
About Face is set to host Jan Serr Opening Reception on September 18. This event is free and open to the public!
In the Continuum 10 Exhibition About Face | Jan Serr, UWM Peck School of the Arts alumnae Jan Serr explores figurative painting, although she is known primarily for her landscapes and still lifes. Her work has been exhibited and collected in the United States and Canada. Serr's work also has been exhibited in the Art in Embassies program organized by the U.S. State Department.
Serr's earliest paintings in the 1970s were of people. She continued figurative work over the next four decades, though the work was rarely if ever exhibited. The Inova exhibition will survey Serr's earlier work and include a large group of new figurative paintings created specifically for this exhibition.
An illustrated catalog of the exhibit will be published, honoring the 50th anniversary of the Peck School of the Arts. The catalog will include a critical essay by Miriam Seidel, as well as an introduction by Lee Ann Garrison, chair of the Peck School's Department of Art & Design.
