Artist Janet McGregor Dunn Participating in Senoia's Art Of Green On April 25


Will Be Interviewed on 92.5 FM (The Bear) Radio on April 23 

      Carla Cook Smith has just released today (April 21) the info that another prominent Fayette County artist will be participating in Senoia's Art Of Green, namely Janet McGregor Dunn..  Two days before the art festival she will be interviewed on Senoia's radio station 92.5 FM The Bear.  Here is the news release:
"Senoia's "Art of Green" Art Show brings recycled art to Georgia's Earth Day celebration. The event, which will take place Saturday, April 25th from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in historic downtown Senoia is sponsored by the Cultural Arts Committee of the Senoia Downtown Development Authority  and presented by " Arts and Expressions "  magazine.   The most recent artist to participate in the show is Potter Janet McGregor Dunn .  Janet recycles nature into some of her  pottery, adding straw, rocks and leaves or other found items from the woods surrounding her home.  Mrs. Dunn's enthusiasm for creating interesting and eclectic pottery is obvious. Dunn discovered her love for working with clay approximately 15 years ago after a lifetime of drawing, painting with oils and acrylics, and multi-media crafting.   Janet notes:  "Clay allows me to incorporate all of the various mediums I enjoy.    I knew when I put my fingers in that first block of clay and began forming it that I had found 'my' perfect media."


The Fayette County potter's work is earthy, bluesy, and each piece seems to be unlike any other she has made.   The hues and colors of nature from the blues of water and sky to the browns and greens of leaves, grass and trees can be seen in a large portion of her completed pottery. All of her work incorporates a variety of textures.  Janet says she is constantly  " on the prowl "  for new textures to incorporate into  her  pieces.


In addition to exhibiting at "The Art of Green Show," some of  Janet's work is currently on display at the Dogwood Gallery  in Tyrone.   Her work can be viewed online at www.Hummingbird-Hollow.com  or by appointment  ( 404-290-3638 ). 


Listen for Janet along with Ann Busey, Chairman of the DDA's Cultural Arts Committe as well as other artists, Thursday evening, April 23rd at 9:15 p.m. on 92.5 The Bear."
