July 31, 2020 – August 30, 2020

Curated by Amelia Biewald and Jason Clay Lewis

The Royal @ RSOAA is pleased to present, REMAKE / REMODEL a group exhibition curated by Amelia Biewald and Jason Clay Lewis featuring artists Nicole Awai, Julia Blume, Michael Pribich, Esperanza Cortés, Kris Rac, Cecile Chong, Grace Graupe-Pillard, Yuliya Lanina, Lilian Garcia-Roig, Julien Tomasello, Tessa Krieg, Elena Chestnykh, and Benjamin Cabral.

The seemingly endless storm of recent events has me thinking of ways artists interpret and process their surroundings. The creation of art reflects the artist’s response to their world, and that can be both beautiful and ugly.

RG Magazine spotlight on Janet Rutkowski

Janet Rutkowski featured in RG magazine:

Art can be produced in so many various mediums there is no limit to what someone can do. From painting to welding the possibilities are endless. For the general public they rarely equate art outside of painting and drawing. Yet there are those who have been privy to the amazing work of sculpture using all types of materials. Artists like Janet Rutkowski have offered the public a taste of that type of art. Her love of art began in her early 20’s during her years at the High School of Art and Design in NYC. There she studied drawing, painting, fashion illustration, and advertising.”
