About The Event

Closing reception:

Artist talk at 5pm; Reclaiming America’s Narrative in Art

Janus Lee is a sign-painter’s daughter and south Austin artist painting true stories of everyday people — often from midwestern, mid century family photos. After winning art awards in high school and college, Janus worked many jobs, including: art director, old-school graphic designer, and illustrator. In Florida in the mid-1990’s, Janus helped curate ‘Faces of the Americas’ at the Children’s Museum of Tampa, and exhibited calligraphy with the Suncoast Society of Scribes. Then, detouring from her plans to illustrate medical textbooks, in 2000 Janus earned her master’s degree in Asian medicine, with private practice until 2014. She returned to art at St. Edward’s University studying sequential art for creating historical graphic novels, and the true story of her great-grand uncle, Cap Streeter, is now in progress: #TheManWhoMadeWarOnChicago
