JenMarie Zeleznak (M.F.A., painting, 2011) depicts animals as “a medium for the expression of the self.” Her work is concerned with social and emotionally driven experiences, proclaiming the animal as autonomous and self-referential, but also as an emblem of the human condition. Her work was acquired by the National Museum of Wildlife Art, Jackson, Wyoming, for its permanent collection. In 2013, Zeleznak’s works were featured in “Animatopoeia: A Most Peculiar (Post Modern) Bestiary” at the Cleveland State University Art Gallery, and she was featured in Studio Visit Magazine, Volume 17, in 2012. She lives and works in Cleveland, OH.
