Art Show – Janet Stapelman

Please join us for the opening reception after Sunday’s service on October 6 at 11:45. Janet will share her story and talk about her work.

We will be showing a beautiful collection of Janet Stapelman’s string artwork in our sanctuary for the months of October and November.   Janet has a degree in Fine Arts and found herself with a job designing and building sets on Broadway in New York City for many years.  She loved her career but was forced to make a change because of developing rheumatoid arthritis in her fingers.

A chance experiment in gluing leftover snippets from her needlepoint projects on to canvas board lead to a new art form which was very well received by other people.  Today Janet loves what she does and is very happy doing this meticulous work while listening to music or stories.  Her work has been described as “…swirls, spirals and colors…all coming together in endlessly complex creations, as if watching the universe come alive in eye-popping 3D.”
