$10 – $20
William Martin Jean - Turnstile II

William Martin Jean - Turnstile IAs part of our 20th Anniversary Founder’s Exhibition, the Artists Archives is hosting private studio tours of Founder David E. Davis’ studio and a selection of the other early supporting artists. The series continues with an intimate look at William Martin Jean’s studio in the Tower Press Building in Cleveland on Saturday, October 29th from 1:00-2:30pm.

Widely acclaimed for his elegant systems-based art, William Martin Jean creates paintings that combine rational, intellectual experience with personal, intuited feeling. Jean’s paintings and works on paper reflect his Asian background as an influence and are developed using subtle color and textural relationships, creating a sense of order and quiet introspection. Recently, Jean has also been creating small collage paintings, often by gluing and sewing materials on paper.

Jean was a Director at the Cleveland Institute of Art for forty years and his work is represented in the collections of the Butler Institute of American Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art, University Hospitals, the Cleveland Art Association and numerous corporate collections.

William Martin Jean - Votive Figure IVAlong with the founder David E. Davis and the first 7 supporting artists- Shirley Aley Campbell, David A. Haberman, Robert Jergens, Patricia Zinsmeister Parker, Phyllis Seltzer, Phyllis Lester Sloane and Randall Tiedman- William was instrumental in laying the groundwork for what would become the only freestanding archive and regional museum of its kind in the country- the Artists Archives of the Western Reserve.
