Janet Schwartz

Rainy Day Dreams

November 5 - December 31, 2016

In the Library Meeting Room Gallery

We have all had the experience of driving in a rain storm and watching the water spray across the windshield and distorting the patterns of the taillights. The work of Janet Schwartz captures these familiar scenes in a series she calls Rainy Day Dreams. These impressionistic pictures make the viewer know that it’s really wet outside and you are happy to be cosseted away inside your car.

Schwartz is an eclectic artist working in oils, pastels and charcoal. In addition to her pastel traffic scenes, Schwartz does figurative oil painting and moody urban scenes in charcoal. Her newest interest is in architectural scenes.

A Westborough resident, Schwartz received a B.A. in Art Education and has received awards for her work from Pastel Society of New Hampshire, Concord Arts Association Members juried show and 2nd place in a juried “Cityscape” show in 2015.  She says of her work: “I bring a very personal and unique viewpoint to my work that I would describe as realism with an impressionist edge. I strive to capture the mood of my subjects, imbuing my work with drama and emotion, resulting in compositions that can be more powerful and compelling than the subject itself.”

Schwartz will have a reception on November 16 from 6-8:30 p.m.. The evening will have a jazz duo to complement the art and enhance the evening.
