Jo Mancuso

Jo Mancuso worked at the San Francisco Examiner for 20 years, on the news/copy desk, for the Sunday magazine and as editor of the weekly food and home sections. She also did feature writing for the paper and won a Society of Professional Journalists award for best feature story (print). Previously she worked for the Oregonian, Oregon Journal and Idaho Free Press. She graduated from the University of Oregon.

Jo has accumulated quite a few artworks of Oregon and Northern California landscapes, many of unknown provenance. She has assigned a different subject to each of 12 walls in her home. The only completed display, in the kitchen above the range, features nine depictions of Crater Lake, including a 1957 black-and-white Kodak snapshot with the curator standing in the foreground.
