Detroit multimedia artist and College for Creative Studies alumna, Jaclyn Schanes, has recently concentrated her expression through acrylic paint with a focus on the Motor City.  Paintings of vintage cars as well as vintage sports stars, with the use of white space, draw your eye to the vibrant colors. Recently, her "LaFerrari" Acrylic 3'/4' on canvas was sold in the silent auction at the renown Concours D' Elegance. She has designed for multiple apparel and costume companies, including her own, Motor City Baby. In London she worked as a fabric designer for H&M, Primark, and Forever21. Jacx was also head of costume design in feature films, including Art House, starring Gretta Gerwig and Iggy Pop. In her exhibit/performance, "Show Pony" at Detroit's Re:View Contemporary Gallery in 2010, Jaclyn dressed in a chain bodice covered in her water color portraits, all of which were removed by the patrons. For the sold out exhibit she wrote, performed and recorded soundscapes/songs that lasted a duration of 2 hours.  A "cover girl", Jaclyn's art has been the cover of multiple publications including twice on The Detroit Metro Times in 2011 and 2015 and on The Jewish News of Detroit in 2016.  Jaclyn has exhibited worldwide and her work can also be viewed on her Instagram "Newjacxcity" and at Facebook.com/jacxart. She currently works by commission. For your own personal portrait please click on the contact section or simply email her direct at Jacx@Jacxart.com. Prices available upon request.
