Janet Onofrey

Janet Onofrey was born in Pittsburgh, PA and moved to South Florida
where the sunlight and mild weather beckoned her to paint, “in the
open air,” en plein air. Her Masters Degree in Painting lead to a
residency in Provence, France and time in Barcelona and Paris. She
was awarded the South Florida Cultural Consortium Visual and Media
Artist Fellowship judged for her extensive body of work. Janet was
accepted into the Skopelos Foundation of Art Residency on Skopelos
Island off the coast of Greece in 2016. She continues to travel;
Canada, The Netherlands, Spain and the Rockies, drawing and
painting, to capture a sense of place.

Her art has been juried into national exhibitions such as the American
Impressionist Society, American Women Artists, and is a member of
the Oil Painters of America. The Baker Museum in Naples, Florida,
Annual All Florida Juried Exhibition, Boca Raton Museum of Art;
Museum for Women Artists and Andrews Art Museum in North
Carolina are just a few of her museum exhibitions. “Silent Spaces” is
her solo show of 60 paintings and 31 drawings at BACA Gallery in
Pompano Beach in 2021. She was featured in “New American
Paintings,” and her art resides in public and private collections. She
teaches drawing, painting and watercolor at Boca Raton Museum
