  • Artist Statement:
    • "Up Close and Personal is the name of my exhibit. I love to paint subjects that are up close because I see things that many people miss. I see the beauty in something old and rusty, the colors of orange and blue, the shapes of the dents.  I see an object that was once valuable in our society that is now thrown away and no longer useable. I see the beauty of the inside of a flower without telling it’s whole story. I see the shapes in some one’s face, I see hope and despair.  

      We all create what is familiar to us, what we are comfortable with, when we are seeing something that needs a comment because it bothers us. Nothing could be more personal than seeing your son hold his son in his hand. In this exhibition, I have tried to show a body of my work and what I do in my classes. I believe that as an artist, I must constantly strive to invent and search for new ways to see the world around me.  I have taught water media classes for over twenty years. I have taught in the states and aboard. Teaching is my passion! I have met so many wonderful and interesting people while traveling to great destinations."

  • Reception: July 12 • Noon-1 PM
    • Light refreshments provided
  • Artist: Janet Nelson
  • Exhibit Statement:
    • "My style has evolved through observation and changes in my environment, but I have learned not to take myself too seriously as a result.  I paint what I feel as I know that each piece that is created ends up qualifying the one before, and becomes a recognizable style. Recently I have been working on large floral paintings. I cover the canvas with different colors and then start to paint in the negative space as I see floral shapes.  The process has evolved as each piece teaches me something new."
