Jane Angelhart is a woman who everyone will feel that they've known for years. Her
fun-loving and approachable nature has allowed her to spend the last 10 years educating
students across the country on the art of watercolor. Paducah is looking forward to
hosting Angelhart as this month's artist in resident in the LowerTown Arts District.
A resident of Aurora, Colorado, Jane works as a representational artist, painting mostly
in watercolors. Her work has been featured nationally in galleries and publications. Her
most recent achievement came when her work was selected as one of American Artist's
Best of Watercolor in 2010.
She has studied art for as long as she can remember and most recently has been faced
with the challenge of balancing the pressures of caring for her family while still making
time for creating art.
"I have watched the art program develop and grow (in Paducah) and I need a place free
of folks relying on me for their basic care for a spell," said Angelhart. "I hope to start a
new path while in Paducah, exploring some different forms of art entirely."
She will be doing something different from her usual portrait-style painting while
working in Paducah—painting entirely from her imaginations and dreams for the month.
"I am apprehensive and have no idea what the product will be so it should be very
interesting," she said.
While here Angelhart will lead a workshop at A.I.R. Studio, located at 621 Madison
Street, on March 14-16 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The class is open to anyone with interest
in watercolors, from beginners to advanced students. The class is limited to 15 students.
The cost is $275. To register, contact Angelhart at (303) 910-3739.
The public is invited to view Jane's work at an artist's reception held March 26 from 6 to
8 p.m. at A.I.R. Studio in the LowerTown Arts District.
