About Janice Hathaway

Janice Hathaway is an artist, educator, photographer and designer. She teaches design and digital imaging for Computer Arts at Thomas Nelson Community College in Williamsburg, Virginia. Janice has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and a Master of Fine Arts degree in Printmaking and Photography, both from the University of Alabama.

Janice was born St. Louis, Missouri in 1951, and lived in Alabama until the early 1980’s. In 1973 she began working as a member of the Dada group Raudelunas in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. She later continued her work in Birmingham, Alabama as part of the Alabama Surrealist group Glass Veal. In 1983 Janice moved to Mississippi and then Tennessee before relocating in 1988 to Hawaii, where she continued to work as a Surrealist. Currently she lives in Williamsburg, Virginia where she exhibits and performs as part of the Raudelunas group and publishes and collaborates with the Chicago Surrealist group.

In 2012 she was invited to participate in the international exhibition “Surrealism in 2012, Toward the World of the Fifth Sun” in Reading, Pennsylvania. In 2004 her work was included in an exhibition and interdisciplinary symposium, “Otherwise, Fantastic Art”, in the Museums of Upper Austria. Her digital prints have been included in a number of regional, national and international venues.

Janice Hathaway’s work is meant to encourage reflection about the relationship between nature and culture, handwork and technology while being strongly influenced by coincidence, humor, feelings and desire. This work sustains the artist's long-term interest in creating prints of imaginary situations seeking the living moment.

Janice uses original photographic images of natural subjects, such as plants, skies, objects and facades of buildings, which are digitally combined and printed. This work sustains the artist's long-term interest in creating two-dimensional and sculptural collage.
