Russell Janis project space invites artists of various disciplines and stages of careers to make prints giving them the opportunity to expand their studio practice. This collaborative experience is invariably giving them the opportunity to expand their studio practice. This collaborative experience is invariably invigorating to the artist and rekindles the excitement in their professional lives.
Under creative director and printmaker Janis Stemmermann artists are invited to work on the 36″x60″ Charles Brand Press in the Russell Janis Studio. Our focus has been on ways to use our press to bring freshness to traditional printmaking and share the results directly with the community we have built through exhibitions and communal participatory events. A core theme and interest of the Russell Janis project space is “cross over”. The pairing of diverse disciplines, releasing ways of seeing otherwise not possible.
