In addition to her work at the MAC, Janis has been working as a professional artist for the past 19 years.
Rebecca is the newest member of the Mendocino Art Center’s Exhibition team. Rebecca recently moved to Fort Bragg from Chico, CA, where she taught art classes for the last five years at Yuba College. During that time she also worked closely with the Yuba Arts Council teaching art to incarcerated juveniles and adults and served as the co-chair of the Exhibition Committee at the 1078 gallery. Rebecca received her MFA at California College of the Arts in San Francisco and her BA at San Francisco State University. Her work has been shown in New American Paintings as well as various shows throughout the United States. In addition to her work at the MAC, Rebecca will be teaching a painting class at the Mendocino College coast campus this spring.
