After 5 years in that position, she changed directions from

Jane Gardner

Graduate of UC-DAAP and Teacher of Art in Cincinnati Public Schools. Viewing the screening of Bob Flischel’s inspiring photos of C.P.S. Art and Architecture led to supporting The Art League renewal. Jane has been a part of Art League Afternoons, edited The Newsletter, is a past president, and a part of other supporting efforts. Having the Art League book, “Expression of the Community,” published in 2001 was a highlight for the group and Jane.
