A former resident of Avon Lake, David Jansheski was an internationally recognized professional artist for over 25 years.  Highlights of this art show include mixed-media prints, relief prints, and his signature “Kite” piece.  

Before David's death in December of 2014 he donated his estate, including a collection of his personal works, to create an arts endowment at the Community Foundation of Lorain County.  Proceeds from the sale of the artwork grow this endowment, permanently supporting the arts in Lorain County.

The Beth K. Stocker Art Gallery is open during events at Stocker Arts Center and by appointment by calling (440) 366-4140.  An artists’ reception will be held on Thursday, May 31, from 4-7 p.m.  

The exhibit will also be open the evening of July 11, 2018, for the Best of Lorain County event presented by Pulse Magazine.  All exhibitions and receptions are free and open to the public. Exhibition of Jansheski prints at the Beth K. Stocker Art Gallery
