October 23, 2012 – A series of work by Los Angeles artist Jane Gottlieb, a long-time member of the UCLA family, has been installed in UCLA School of Law’s Hugh & Hazel Darling Law Library. The collection, “Dreamscapes,” includes 31 unique, vividly colored pieces.
As much a painter as a photographer, Ms. Gottlieb uses her colorist skills to hand-paint layers of retouching dyes onto her Cibachrome prints. The art on display at UCLA Law, created by Ms. Gottlieb during the last three decades, includes her original, hand-painted, one-of-a-kind Cibachrome prints, Photoshop-enhanced archival inkjet prints and giclée prints on Arches paper. The pieces are on loan to UCLA School of Law for five years.
Ms. Gottlieb graduated from UCLA in 1968 with a degree in painting and art history. She attended UCLA’s University Elementary School, where she held her first art exhibit in the fifth grade. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group show worldwide, including at the Butler Institute of American Art, Monterey Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History, Laband Art Gallery at Loyola Marymount University, Peterson Automotive Museum, Louis Stern Gallery in Los Angeles, Nancy Hoffman Gallery in New York and L’Image Gallery in Rome, Italy. Among the collections in which her art is represented are the Orange County Museum of Art, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation and Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C.
