Thomas Nelson Professor Janice Hathaway was honored with the opportunity to exhibit her collages at The Eugenio Granell Fundación in Santiago de Compostela, Spain during summer 2016. Granell’s daughter, Executive Director Natalia Fernandez, extended the invitation as part of a year of women surrealist exhibitions in honor of her mother and Granell’s wife, Amparo Segarra. Hathaway received a Paul Lee grant in support of the exhibition.
Granell was the last Spanish surrealist of the early surrealist movement. The Eugenio Granell Fundación is the only museum in the world dedicated exclusively to the movement. The Eugenio Granell Fundación opened in 1995 in his hometown of Santiago de Compostela, Spain which holds 600 of Granell’s paintings along with works by Francis Picabia, Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray and André Breton.
Hathaway teaches computer arts courses at Thomas Nelson. Prior to moving to Virginia in 2008, she lived in Hawaii for 20 years and taught at both the University of Hawaii and Kapi’olani Community College in Honolulu, Hawaii. Hathaway has a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Master of Fine Arts in Printmaking and Photography from the University of Alabama.
Hathaway began working conscientiously as an established surrealist in the late 1970s when she became a founding member of the Alabama surrealist group Glass Veal.
