The Other Side of Strange
Janet Groves brings her individual visual language to The Alverton Gallery this November. Whether it is the continuing saga of the life of Edgar Nevermore, the Raven, rendered in jewel-like colours or the re-visioning of impressionist masterpieces, Janet demonstrates the skill that had her voted into membership of the prestigious Birmingham Art Circle. She regularly exhibits with the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists as well as in galleries across Cornwall and the country. Having devoted most of her life to raising children, she was inspired by the late Colin Scott at Penzance Art School to see the other side of everyday life. This leads to a gentle humorous take on fairy tales and other illustrated stories, not as laugh-out-loud as last month’s Absurdist exhibition but just as liberating. Her work is held in collections both in this country and abroad.
