3 Cool Photographs by Jana Cruder

Posted on: September 2nd, 2013 by Jane Maxwell 2 Comments

I’m so excited to be opening a show at Joanne Artman Gallery in Laguna Beach THIS week.  It’s a two-person show where my work is paired with images by a really talented photographer, Jana Cruder.  In her words, her photography is ‘an exploration & examination of the importance of appearance and how the societal
roles of woman, man, husband & wife are learned and the influence of today’s media & culture shapes us through icons like Barbie & Ken.”  Interesting pairing I think.  We  both explore physical, ideal beauty and it’s role and importance in our society – yet we come at it through very different lenses.  Should be a strong and compelling show.  If you’re in So Cal drop by the gallery.  The show runs from September 1 – October 31, with an Artist Reception on Thursday, January 5 from 6-8.  Jana and I will both be there.

  1. Very exciting! I wish I wasn’t 5600 miles away. We need to find you a gallery in Brussels!

    Your new work is outstanding… The show will be fab!
    I can see why you chose Jasmine Chen to do your Kids’ portraits… They’re way beyond “likenesses”…
