Places I Have Known: Painting from Here and There

Artist Janet Dyer will be showing paintings at the Suffern Free Library, June 3-July 3, 2019. The opening reception is June 8, 2:30-4:30 pm.

The theme of the show, “Places I Have Known,” reflects Ms. Dyer’s long-time interest in landscapes. The show includes paintings of local spots, such as Harriman State Park; the Midwest; and Europe.

Dyer painted her first landscapes when she was 9, and says she never runs out of subjects. “I love to travel, and landscapes have always been the main attraction—especially farms and France, and farms in France. I’m always happy to see different landscapes. Luckily for me, landscapes are everywhere, so I’m spoiled for choice. The world is full of inspiration!”

She has had work in galleries on the East Coast and in the Midwest. Currently, she shows her work at Collectors’ Corner, Toledo Museum of Art, Ohio, and Hudson Gallery, Sylvania, Ohio; and online at Her website is She also shows “day-to-day work” at her Facebook Art page: Janet Dyer Art.

Dyer, who lives in Suffern, NY, grew up in Ohio and Michigan; her family moved to this area when she was 17. Landscape painting is not her only interest: Dyer is also a writer, editor, printmaker, photographer, and adjunct art professor at Rockland Community College. She is a master Reiki practitioner, and provides energy healing for animals, including at Hi-Tor animal rescue.

Suffern Free Library, located at 210 Lafayette Ave., is open Monday through Thursday 10-9, Friday and Saturday 10-5, Sunday 12-5.
