Featured Artist: Janet L. Kondziela

Exhibition: “The World of Janet”

Date:  November 29, 2022 Through January 3, 2023

Reception:  December 4, 2022 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.

Janet L. Kondziela’s exhibition includes a variety of plein air paintings, as well as portraits and still lifes in pencil, conté crayon and watercolor that capture the essence of a moment, the play of light on a surface, the beauty of an ordinary object or the character of a person. 

This Michigan native who hails from Dearborn is compelled to communicate what she sees around her every day – the beauty of the colors, the light, or the person’s expression revealing their character. This talented artist is a graduate of the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI and has received a Bachelor of Fine Arts.  In addition, she has studied at Wayne State University and has an MSW in Mental Health. 

A variety of Kondziela’s works, including easel paintings, are held internationally in private collections.   In addition, her murals are currently on display at the Detroit Post Office, located at 1401 W Fort Street in Detroit, MI, as well as at the Postal Service Great Lakes Area Office in Bloomington, IL.

Kondziela believes, “...I paint because when I do, I’m as happy as the eight-year-old who just discovered the wonderful and exciting world of art. I knew I wanted to be an artist from the time I was eight years old. I clearly remember kneeling on the floor to paint a life sized (36” tall) portrait of ‘what we want to be when we grew up.’. Since I wanted to be a nun at the time, my painting was black, white and pink, with a blue sky and a green for the grass. When I saw how beautiful the colors looked next to each other and what a pure joy it was to place them on the paper, I immediately changed my mind as to my future, from nun to artist and never looked back.”

This talented artist is currently a member of the Oil Painters of America, the Detroit Society of Women Painters and Sculptors, the Downriver Arts Association, the Northville Art House, and is the current President of Artists’ Society of Dearborn.
