Grand Central Press to publish Janice Lowry monograph

Here is some great news. Andrea Harris and Amy Caterina dropped by to visit Janice a couple of days ago and told us that the Grand Central Press is planning to publish a book about Janice and her art. This was a project that Andrea and Janice had talked about doing a year or so ago, but personal issues arose in Andreas life and the book was put on hold. It looks like it will happen after all, which will be a great addition to Janice's legacy as an artist.

The photo was taken at the 10 year anniversary show for the Grand Central Gallery on March 11, 2009. Janice was one of the featured alumni who had shown there several times over the past 10 years. She was disappointed that the book on her work was not completed as originally planned for the show, but undaunted, she took matters into her own hands. She wrote, drew, designed, assembled and self published her own monograph on her life, and her self published book made it's debut that night. It was a big hit, and she sold out of every copy she had.


  1. That's so awesome! Congratulations Janice :)

  2. Hi Liz-
    I don't know what the publication schedule for the book is yet, but I'm sure at best it is many months away. There is a lot of photography and writing to be done, so it is really just in the planning stages right now. A good website to keep checking for updates is

  3. I will try and start photography for the book in January. This will be a 2010/11 publishing project. We will be working up some ideas with John. I plan to have a great designer on this. The book will need some fundraising to make it all come together but it will happen. I am committed to making it and very excited about it. Mike McGee is writing one essay for it and we will have other contributors. All at GCAC love Janice and John and the art world needs this book. I will be posting updates on the Grand Central Art Center blog as things progress.
    best to you all, Andrea
