LIBERTY - Continuing the Liberty Museum & Arts Center’s 25th anniversary summer celebration, the eclectic and critically acclaimed paintings of Janet Leroy will be on display at the Museum from September 25th through October 16th.
Janet “Jan” LeRoy’s life has been an artful sojourn. Ever since she was a youngster, she has enjoyed colors, paints, all kinds of artist supplies, sunsets, light, and quiet painting moments. They have been a natural high for her.
Janet is a Liberty native. She worked in the Liberty Town Clerk’s Office for 33 years, raised a daughter, and planted a garden. She snaps many a photo, and creates in oils, acrylics, watercolors, and colored pencils. She has a great love for porcelain painting as well. Janet has pursued an “artful” life. Janet studied drawing with Francis Davis, the late wildlife artist and spent many years painting under the tutelage of Paul Gould of the Hudson Valley School. Also, Janet has studied porcelain art with many well-known artists. Moreover, she is a member of the Studio Wednesday group at the Daniel Pierce Library in Grahamsville.
In addition to her usual painting and because of her interest in quilting, Janet has created quilt-like art, creating blocks with fabric-like prints using colored pencils and pens. Finally, she has been working with pen and ink zentangle art. Janet feels that Sullivan County has a natural beauty with its greenery, lakes, hills, wildlife and the Delaware River that surpasses many areas of the country. It’s a great inspiring place for an artist to live.
The exhibit opening and reception will be held on Saturday, September 25th, from noon until 4 p.m. Janet will be on hand to discuss her work. As always, refreshments will be served and admission is free. The Museum is located at 46 South Main Street in Liberty.
