The unveiling of six tabletop hearts took place at the Stockton Street window of Macy’s Union Square. (Jean-Claude is standing just to the left of his, front and center!)

Gallerie CITI

1115 Howard Avenue, Burlingame, CA 94010


Opening Reception: Saturday 2 March 2013 5:00–7:00 pm

HEADS is an art exhibit intended to be a slightly overwhelming survey of the interpretation and revision of portraiture from ten artists on Gallerie Citi’s roster, plus two guest artists. It features diverse media—photography, drawing, sculpture, assemblage, and painting—and through the artists’ interpretation of the main figure it explores myriad variations possible within the construct of identity.


February 9, 2012

I was selected by the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation as one of the artists to participate in the 2012 Heroes & Hearts fundraising project. The event is set for Thursday February 9th, 2012 and the Who's Who of San Francisco will be present. The fourteen hearts will be auctionned off to support the foundation, and I am honored to be a part of it.

The unique aspect of the benefit is the creation of beautiful heart sculptures that can be viewed in and around Union Square this time of year. Contributed by 14 artists in all, the pieces are a touching reminder of why “SFGH is the Heart of the City.”

Since its founding in 1994, the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation has raised over $50 million, helping to directly impact nearly 100,000 patients each year.

This is my heart on the auction block!

I have been awarded an Artist Residency at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT for the full month of March 2013.

... Jean-Claude Langer's figurative acrylic paintings on paper possess a force of dazzling spontaneity, while also considering ever-present tensions intrinsic to the human experience. The work reflects human dignity and the beauty of daily life.
