“I take my inspiration from color, light, movement and the abstract within shapes. I will never tire of the amazing beauty around here. My husband and I take what we call meanders, poking down a road, going over another hill and waiting a few more moments for the change in light.”
For the month of September, The Village Gallery welcomes Janet Jaworski, oil painter. Please join us for Janet’s opening reception on Saturday, September 1st, from 2:00 to 5:00 PM. The Gallery is located at 300 Hodges Street, Oriental.
Janet was born and raised in central New England were the mountains and rocks form the landscape. Discouraged from becoming a fine artist, she eventually worked as a graphic designer for local newspapers. For over 30 years, Janet worked as a professional graphic designer and art director in the building material, furniture, and financial industries … but her painterly streak kept calling.
Janet returned to the Worcester Art Museum—where she had studied in her early 20’s—and focused on her painting. She became a corporator at the Museum, where she participated in classes and workshops, creating a foundation in art that she continues to build upon.
Janet now pursues her love of art in North Carolina, quite a way from New England. Many of her paintings are inspired by photos of this stunning region. Challenging herself to paint and paint, the results are bigger, smaller, looser, and more colorful canvases.
The Gallery is located at 300 Hodges Street in Oriental, NC . The gallery’s display changes frequently with different artists and works presented.
