Janice Weissman, Paul McCormack, and Paul Oxborough.
New works by each of these artists will be included in our Contemporary Realism exhibition (April 7 - April 30) at Project 3W57.
Janice Urnstein Weissman (b. 1944) hails from St. Louis, Missouri. She received her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and her MFA from the University of Cincinnati. Though she began painting in an Impressionist style, Weissman turned to Realism to depict her figures. She focuses on the tattoo sub-culture, which she refers to as "Living Canvases." Her body art-covered models explore what it means to have art inked on the body, and what messages they are trying to convey. She has shown in galleries and museums all over the world, and also works as a teacher at both the college and high school levels. She says, "I am the re-teller of their stories. The pain and the exhilaration of their statement compound the freedom of expression that my female models endure."
