Clarksville’s Downtown Artist Co-op Gallery to feature Janet Felts in January

 

Downtown Artists Co-opClarksville, TN – Native Clarksvillian Janet Jones Felts will exhibit her artworks throughout the month of January at the Downtown Artist Co-op Gallery. Her show, “Freedom to Explore”, represents her diversity acquired from years of study as an art educator in Tennessee and Georgia.

Her works include creations in acrylics, watercolors, pen and ink, charcoal and oil. Janet’s style is realistic and her favorite subject matter revolves around trees and nature. She works in her studio and also outdoors in plein air.

Clarksville artist Janet Jones Felts to exhibit at Downtown Artist Co-op Gallery throughout the month of January.

“Freedom to Explore” sums up the many media and skills she’s taught as a high school art teacher. Janet’s training started at APSU with an Associate in Advertising Art and a BFA in Art Education. Gwinnett County School System, where she taught in Georgia, provided workshops on art techniques, media and teaching during the summer.

Now that Ms. Felts is retired she says, “I’m like a kid just out of art school, it’s time I find myself.”

“Freedom to Explore” is about her journey since retirement in creating her own art. Settling on just one medium to work in for Janet is problematic, she loves them all.

Everyone is welcome to attend the “Opening Reception”, Thursday, January 7th from 5:00-8:00 pm at the DAC (Downtown Artist Co-op) on 96 Franklin, Street in Clarksville. The exhibit will be on display January 7th – 29th. DAC hours are: Wednesday-Friday, 12:00am-4:00am Saturday, 10:00am-6:00pm.

Mrs. Felts joined the DAC last February. “Freedom to Explore” will be her first solo exhibit at the DAC. This is not her first solo exhibit in Clarksville. She had a solo exhibit at the Custom House Museum’s Peg Harvill Gallery in 2014. Since her retirement from teaching art in Georgia in 2010, she has returned to her beloved Tennessee and settled in Erin where she has her studio on East Main Street. She has her web site and blog at www.jfeltsart.com
