Janice Reash a SASS graduate (1969), worked as a social worker until she retired in 1991. In 1991, Reash started to explore the different avenues of printmaking. Today she varies her techniques to that of the linocut, intaglio, wood cut and monotype. You can see her enjoyment and passion of the process as the images emerge on the paper.
Reash explains, “Printmaking provides the perfect medium of complement because one is constantly surprised by the results off the press…The “Aha!” experience is standard…My work of late has evolved further into art as revelation, indulging in the pleasure of not knowing where I was going. The work reveals itself in plateaus, in little lurches and layers of meaning as I used overlay printings, often combining several techniques to create the final image.” She is currently a member of Zygote Press, a printmaking artist’s consortium in Cleveland.
Jan Reashs’ works are for sale. The work is currently be exhibited on the on the first floor of the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences. The exhibit runs through September 22, 2009.
