Join mixed media artist Jane Maxwell for a demonstration of her special technique of layering with vintage papers, beeswax, and found objects. Observe and learn as she creates her unique figurative work. Visitors are invited to join in and create their own small collage.
Jane Maxwell is a mixed media artist whose layered works explore issues of body image and perfectionism, and the stark contradiction between our shiny exteriors and our complex interior worlds. Her artistic voice grew out of a passion for vintage materials, modern fashion and design—mingled with a deep fascination for pop culture and female icons.
Maxwell’s work is exhibited at galleries throughout the United States, including Caldwell Snyder in San Francisco, Joanne Artman in New York City, and Lanoue Fine Art in Boston. Her work has been featured in numerous newspaper and magazine articles and books on mixed media and collage. She has also been a guest lecturer on the topic of body image and art. Recently, she was selected to be included in the 30th anniversary edition of Who’s Who in American Art. Maxwell graduated with a BA in Literature from Middlebury College. She studied mixed media at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and at the Decordova Museum School in Lincoln, Massachusetts.
