Renowned local artist leaves creative legacy

Posted

Artist Jan Trisler, a Sun City resident for more than 25 years, died Nov. 14 in her home, surrounded by her family of husband George Palovich, four daughters and four granddaughters.

Devoted to the arts for sixty years, Ms. Trisler was recognized nationally, early in her career, as an outstanding ceramic artist. But that was not her only interest. Besides raising four daughters, she found time for music, playing the violin, bass, studying the piano and singing. She and her husband performed in folk concerts around Ohio and Texas during the 1960s and ‘70s.

When the opportunity presented itself, Ms. Trisler captured theatrical roles in various community theaters. She played everything from Kate in “Taming of the Shrew” to Lady Bracknell in “The Importance of Being Earnest.”

Ms. Trisler’s ceramics are in collections and museums around the United States, including the McNay Museum in San Antonio, Texas, the Greer family collection in Texas, the Hinkle collection in Cleveland, Ohio, and the Ashland College Art Collection, Ashland, Ohio. Her ceramic work was featured in two retrospective exhibitions in Arizona; the first at Glendale Community College in 2011, and at the West Valley Art Museum in 2019.

In recent years, Ms. Trisler devoted part of her time to drawing and painting, winning ribbons for both in the Sun City Art Show. She also created a series of stuffed dolls with the likenesses of famous U.S. judges.

Artist, Sun City
