Mary Janacek’s work begins with a sketchbook; torn away sheet by sheet, under layers of watercolors the paper warps and curls embodying the texture of force and decay. She has exhibited work nationally in spaces such as Rush Arts Gallery, New York, NY, The New Britain Museum of Art, New Britain, CT, The Mattatuck Museum, Waterbury, CT, The Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena, CA, and DiverseWorks, Houston, TX.
