erotic!" "Too exotic!" That's how Vancouver City
officials viewed Rose Ann Janzen's work in 1984. They ordered the
painting in question removed from a City Hall Public Exhibition
of British Columbia Artists. Art critic Max Wyman, among others,
rallied in support of Rose Ann but to no avail. The painting remained
"banned from City Hall."
Although mainly self-taught, RoseAnn has studied art in the Netherlands,
at the Banff School of Fine Arts and at the University of British
Columbia. Whether exploring the medinas of Morocco, trekking through
the jungles of Costa Rica or sailing the South Pacific, she is
the irrepressible traveller, never without sketch book in hand.
View opposite is of her Studio/Gallery in Roberts Creek on the
beautiful Sunshine Coast of British Columbia.
RoseAnn's paintings can be viewed at the Dr. Vigari Gallery on
Commercial Drive in Vancouver, The Gibsons Public Art Gallery in Lower
Gibsons, Eco Freako in Roberts Creek, at the Coastal Art Gallery in
Sechelt and at her studio by appointment. Please call 604 886-0936
