Art and Win: Meet Artist (and Seneca Valley Teacher) Jason Woolslare

In anticipation of the Associated Artists of Butler County faculty show in Cranberry, Patch is featuring a different local artist each day leading up to the event.

Do you have plans for Friday, Oct. 12?

Cranberry Patch will be at the opening night of the Associated Artists of Butler County faculty show at the Cranberry Township Municipal Center. The exhibit runs through Nov. 9.

To build excitement for the show, Cranberry Patch is featuring a different local artist on the site each day leading up to the opening night.

“Poppy,” an original watercolor by Mary Alice Carmody-Diana, also will be raffled off at the event. Attendees must be present to win the artwork, which will be on display at the Patch table.

Today, we feature a profile on Jason Woolslare, whose pieces “BCH CYG,” “Boom Bot” and “Black Bird” will be on display at the show.

Name: Jason Woolslare

Education: Edinboro University and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Bio: Jason Woolslare is a visual art teacher at Seneca Valley Intermediate High School and an artist who resides with his wife, Nikki, and daughters Isabel and Scarlett. 

Woolslare’s current work addresses freedom, freedom lost, childhood exploration, societal ills and adventure. 

Woolslare notes how growing up in Western Pennsylvania in a post-industrial rust belt landscape was exciting for him.

“My brothers, friends and I always had a lot of places to explore; whether it was by foot, through our neighborhoods into the woods, on rafts from creeks that lead to the Ohio River or exploring abandoned houses or buildings—We had freedom to explore,” he said in his AABC biography.

By juxtaposing images, Woolslare said he aims to emulate society’s visual noise in his artistic process.
