Artist Reception for Changing Landscapes: Paintings by Janet Pozar
Thursday, October 5, 2017
Join us on Thursday, October 5, 5-8pm at the Town Hall Art Gallery during Amherst Arts Night Plus for “Changing Landscapes" an art exhibit featuring vibrant, scenic paintings by local artist, Janet Pozar. Janet has been painting, drawing, and making art for over 40 years. Janet has captured scenes from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where she grew up, plus other states where she has lived. From the historic stone Ironmaster’s house of Charming Forge, Pennsylvania, to the round barns and tobacco barns of Illinois, and currently local landscapes in and around her home in Leverett.
Artist Statement: When I am engaged in art making, I am fully caught up in the medium and tools and mission. I’ve learned not to think about the product that I will end up with because the time spent engaged in the creative activity is what is most important to me. I enjoy the detached feeling I get when painting —it’s like a dance with my hand and my mind and they take turns leading!
