Jane Richlovsky has been painting on patterned textiles for twenty years, scouring local thrift stores for the fabrics and the American collective unconscious for the narrative material. She was born in Cleveland, Ohio and followed the path of westward expansion to Seattle, Washington where she now works and resides.
Her paintings have been exhibited in solo and group shows throughout the United States, including the Museum of Northwest Art, Bellevue Art Museum, and Tacoma Art Museum in Washington; Lois Lambert Gallery in Santa Monica, CA; JoAnne Artman Gallery in Laguna Beach, CA; LA Art Show and A Shenere Velt Gallery in Los Angeles; The Painting Center in New York City; Heineman-Myers Contemporary Art in Bethesda, MD; Art Now Miami in Miami Beach; Art Santa Fe; the Butte-Silver Bow Arts Foundation in Montana; and in Seattle at Linda Hodges, Fetherston , Atelier 31, Seattle Art Museum, and Pratt Galleries. She has received grants from the George Sugarman Foundation, the Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation, the King County Arts Commission, and Artist Trust. Her work is included in the collection of the King County International Airport and in private collections around the world.
