When artists get together they talk about real estate

Jane Richlovsky,

Originally posted on May 04, 2015


As cities across the nation contend with the displacement of culture by rising real estate prices, the conversation seems to be stuck on the idea of artists as hapless victims in this struggle. Artist Jane Richlovsky's eviction from her studio by the Department of Transportation inspired her to rewrite the Artist vs. Gentrification story. In her paintings, she unpacks the mid-century version of the American Dream. In her life she transforms the stereotypical starving artist in the garrett into the artist as business person who shares in the wealth they create.
Jane Richlovsky is an artist, art studio developer, and cultural space advocate. Her paintings have been exhibited in solo and group shows throughout the United States, including the Fetherston Gallery, Atelier 31, Pratt Gallery, Seattle Art Museum, Museum of Northwest Art and the Tacoma Art Museum in Washington; Lois Lambert Gallery, JoAnne Artman Gallery, and A Shenere Velt Gallery in California; The Painting Center in New York City; Heineman-Myers Contemporary Art in Maryland; and Butte-Silver Bow Arts Foundation in Montana. She is the recipient of grants from the George Sugarman Foundation, the Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation, the King County Arts Commission, USA Projects, and Artist Trust. Her work is included in the collection of the King County International Airport and in private collections around the world. She is a part-time lecturer at the University of Washington and has taught painting and drawing at numerous arts institutions.
