“The Sky Between Two Houses” a print by David Jansheski
Art lovers can own a piece of original art and at the same time contribute to a permanent endowment for the arts in Lorain County. The Community Foundation of Lorain County will host LUSH ~ An Exhibition and Sale of Original Works by Master Printmaker David C. Jansheski in the Beth K. Stocker Art Gallery at Lorain County Community College.
A former resident of Avon Lake, David Jansheski was an internationally recognized professional artist for over 25 years. Highlights of this art show include mixed-media prints, relief prints, and his signature “Kite” piece. Before David’s death in December of 2014 he donated his estate, including a collection of his personal works, to create an arts endowment at the Community Foundation of Lorain County. Proceeds from the sale of the artwork grow this endowment, permanently supporting the arts in Lorain County.
