The faces I see, the places that speak to me and the spaces that inspires me. My love for art rests not in the medium but in the challenge of making hope come to life be it in painting, mixed media or jewelry.
In recent years, I have become increasingly involved with the healing arts based on my belief that art holds restorative powers both for its creator and participant. This conviction has led me to spearhead the Healing Hands Mobile Art Program at Capital Health - Hopewell as well as become an active member of the hospital's Arts & Healing Committee. From my involvement, I continually see the transformation that art offers people and environments. My goal is to create future works offering optimism, calm and splendor in healthcare establishments and continue adding joy to my art lovers' homes.
Formerly, I was a founding partner of LUX Gallery and in my earlier career, Senior Vice President at Projects In Knowledge, a medical education/communications company. I graduated from Rutgers University, studied at Mason Gross School of the Arts and, in London, England, the Sir John Cass School of Art and the London Polytechnic.
My works can be found on the website ArtSpan Contemporary Art, www.JaneZamost.com and in private and commercial collections across the country. As the recipient of the People's Vote Award/2nd Place for "Splendor In The Glass," I integrated paint and recycled materials of discarded glass, mirror, stone and china for my eight-foot long fiberglass oxen that kicked off the Hopewell Valley Arts Council, an organization located in my New Jersey hometown. It was my desire to create beauty with materials initially cast aside - such a discovery is the magic of making art.
