Barbara Morrison Januszkiewicz is an American painter, educator, and a creative activist who is best known for her stylistic independence and is highly recognized for her creative efforts. Januszkiewicz trained formally under Chinese master Mun Quan, at Jacksonville University in the late 70’s.  Her work has been shown at the Phillips Collection, the Corcoran, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Mclean Project for the Arts, and more. Januszkiewicz is the first resident visual artist with the American Jazz Museum and has worked closely with Matthew Shipp and David Leibman in music with art, and with artist Paul Reed. Januszkiewicz is the founder and sponsor of Metro Micro Gallery in Arlington and the founder of The Dotted Line Project in the DC metro area. Philosophically, Januszkiewicz values risk-taking, experimentation, and creative collaboration. Her music-infused art is an example of the dialog she hopes to establish between artists from diverse disciplines — with the overall goal of a more expansive creative vision.
