Janet Stupak: Changing Landscapes: Michigan to Massachusetts

Janet Stupak has been painting landscapes for about 40 years. She has captured scenes from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where she grew up, and many other states where she has lived, from the historic stone ironmaster’s house of Charming Forge, Pennsylvania to the round barns and tobacco barns of Illinois. Currently Stupak lives in Holyoke and is painting local landscapes, including the wondrous brick factory buildings.

In her own words, “I paint for the way it makes me feel. When I am engaged in art making, I am fully caught up in the medium, my tools and my mission. I’ve learned not to think about the piece that I will end up with because the time spent engaged in the creative activity is what is most important to me. I enjoy feeling detached yet completely engaged. The process brings me such joy; the product is a bonus!“Stupak works in acrylic, mainly painting on canvas. Some of her paintings are mixed media, and some include components such as threads.

Gallery hours are Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays from 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m.

You can meet the artist at the Opening Reception on Sunday, August 2 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Admission to the gallery opening is $3 General / Free for Members

Fun Day Sunday at Wistariahurst Museum

Come join us for historic and artistic adventures inspired by the architecture, history, family stories, interior design, gardens, and culture of Wistariahurst. Bring your family to explore the gardens and the house to find inspiration for drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, and more. Make an historically inspired art work as a souvenir of your visit to Wistariahurst.

Each Family Fun Day Sunday will be a different guided creative project. You may travel with the Skinners to Egypt and build a pyramid or to Paris and paint a tiny masterpiece on a miniature easel. A trip to the garden might yield a painting in pastels or watercolor. Seeing the elegantly decorated walls in the house might stimulate a project using printmaking as the medium. Perfect family activities that encourage observation, discovery and creativity.

Sessions will begin at 1:00 PM and end at 3:00 p.m. Registrations required.

when: Sunday, August 2, 2015
1-3pm
where: Wistariahurst Museum
238 Cabot St.
Holyoke, MA 01040
price: There will be a materials fee per project. Families may purchase one or more set of materials. $12.00 – General Fee, $10.00 – Members’ Fee
