An exhibition of new works by Jana Swec & Jonas Criscoe exploring the concept of entropy through movement, pattern, cycles & decay.
Jana Swec received a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2001 with a focus in Studio Arts. After moving to Austin in 2001 and moving into a shared warehouse space with a few other artists and called it Bolm Studios, she co-founded the artist-run organization, Bolm Studios, now known as the non-profit Big Medium, which provides programs such as the East Austin Studio Tour, West Austin Studio Tour, the Texas Biennial, and a year-round gallery that focuses on mostly Texas based artists. In 2014, Jana stepped away from Big Medium (but still sits on the Board of Directors) and began working fulltime as a muralist and sign painter. She has painted murals for clients such as Google, Whole Foods and Facebook.
