Meet the Artist - Featured artist Jan Roy, will be in the gallery Saturday, August 16, 4-6 PM

Sweethaven Gallery is very excited to exhibit the work of Newburyport artist Jan Roy for this ArtWalk. Jan V. Roy began her artistic career as a silk-screen artist in 1979, when she received her first commission from the Portland Symphony Orchestra. For 25 years she designed and printed over 40 posters for various cultural organizations including The Nature Conservancy, The New England Conservatory and the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, for whom she designed an annual poster from 1982 to 2000. Jan's highly successful Brooklyn Bridge Centennial poster crystallized attention on her talent, resulting in one-man shows in Rome, Italy and Paris, France. She also maintained a notecard company, Salt Marsh Graphics.
In 1999 Jan turned her attention to painting. She quickly moved on from pastels to acrylics and oil, and now works almost exclusively in oil.
Jan can be reached at janvroy@gmail.com, and her work can be seen at www.janroy.com.
