EXHIBITION: Jan Ross Watercolors: People, Places, and Things
February 10 @ 9:00 am - March 10 @ 5:00 pmFree
Jan Ross Watercolors: People, Places and Things will open in February of 2022 in the Milliken Art Gallery. Ross describes her work as ‘Up Close and Personal’ as she strives to have the viewer feel a connection to the subject matter, as if they are within reach, rather than simply being an observer at a distance. She enjoys vibrant, rich colors which are obtained by layering or ‘glazing’ transparent watercolor numerous times on 100% cotton rag paper. Ross hopes viewers will continue to look closely at the world around them rather than overlooking the beauty and fascination of People, Places and Things.
Jan has been creating art since the time she could hold a crayon, however, her formal art education began at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts. She continued her studies while living/traveling in Europe for 6 years, as well as ongoing education through workshops with some of America’s top watercolor instructors. For the past 5 years, Jan has been on the faculty of the Art League of Hilton Head Island Art Academy, teaching watercolor classes, as well as teaching on Daufuskie Island. She is on the Board of Directors for the Hilton Head Art League. Having traveled to 27 foreign countries, this Ohio native has been fortunate to have an endless supply of subject matter. Her work is included in collections across the USA and Europe. Jan lives on Haig Point, on Daufuskie Island, S.C., with her husband, Robert, and ‘Studio’ cat, Sweetie.
Jan Ross Watercolors: People, Places and Things will run from February 10-March10, 2022. Ross will present a Gallery Talk on February 10th at 6:00 pm in the gallery followed by a reception from 6:30-8:00 pm.
