Gallery exhibit features alumna Jan Serr

“The Continuum 10 Exhibition: Jan Serr | About Face” will be on display at the Inova/Arts Center Gallery Sept. 6- Oct. 1.

UWM Peck School of the Arts alumna Serr (’66 BFA, ’68 MFA) explores figurative painting in this exhibition, although she is known primarily for her landscapes and still lifes. Her work has been exhibited and collected in the United States and Canada. Serr’s work also has been exhibited in the Art in Embassies program organized by the U.S. State Department.

Serr’s earliest paintings in the 1970s were of people. She continued figurative work over the next four decades, though the work was rarely if ever exhibited. The Inova exhibition surveys Serr’s earlier work and includes a large group of new figurative paintings created specifically for this exhibition.

An illustrated catalog of the exhibit will be published, honoring the 50th anniversary of the Peck School of the Arts. The catalog will include a critical essay by Miriam Seidel, a Philadelphia-based critic and curator, as well as an introduction by Lee Ann Garrison, chair of the Peck School’s Department of Art & Design.

Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. All exhibitions are free.
