It is with great anticipation that ART 101 announces the forthcoming exhibition of works by Jane Freeman.

Jane Freeman is a one-woman artists’ cooperative; painter, sculptor, book artist, designer, thinker, historian, writer, teacher and speaker. ”She is an artist in many ways, not least in her way with words” wrote Oliver Sacks.

She brings her myriad talents to ART 101 on January 25, with a series of paintings and essays inspired by reading “Moby Dick.”

The intense small wood panels evoke 19th century maritime New York. Eleven of Ms. Freeman’s famous miniatures, will also be exhibited, reflecting the 19th century theme. Two have been specially created for the exhibition: “The Spouter Inn; The Creaking Sign” and “The Spouter Inn; The Patchwork Quilt.”

Jane Freeman’s miniature stage sets have been shown both here and abroad. She is the recipient of a Pollack Krasner grant. She has exhibited internationally and has lectured and taught art and writing all over the US and in colleges in New York City. She is the author of “The Art of the Miniature” (Watson-Guptill, 02.)
