JANELL WICHT (American, 20th Century).
Mixed-media artist, Janell Wicht, has had 39 years of RAiR and Roswell influence on her artmaking. Janell first arrived in Roswell from her MFA at Ohio State University in October of 1978 for a year residency and then luckily returned in October 2008 for a RAiR Alumni Residency. Over the years, she has called Roswell a second home. Janell was excited to join in the 50th anniversary celebration to honor Don and Sally Anderson and the RAiR vision. Influences in Janell's abstract work comes from morphing her interest in color, patterning, textures, maps, music and the landscape.
The Roswell Artist-in-Residence Foundation is dedicated to supporting the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program (RAiR), the Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art (AMoCA), and the Historic Studios at Berrendo Road.
This is a very interesting painting, nicely colored folk art. This is one of those paintings that piques your interest. I can see a number of faces of panda-like bears. Like many abstract paintings, different people can see different things.
