Arts & Things will host an art reception for David Jaworski’s nature photos and Janet Jaworski’s bold and vibrant oil paintings from 2-6 p.m. Saturday, June 15 at 704 Evans St.
According to a press release, the Jaworskis moved to North Carolina more than seven years ago from New England and were immediately inspired by the nature scenes and wildlife of the local area.
Many of Dr. Jaworski’s photos are the inspiration for Mrs. Jaworski’s oil paintings.
Dr. Jaworski has always had an interest in photography and moving to this area allowed him to pursue it, according to a release.
Working at the hospital Dr. Jaworski met so many people who told him of their special places in Carteret County. He furthered his eye with photography workshops, especially with Randy Sangers.
Mrs. Jaworski had been a professional graphic designer for more than 30 years, but pursued painting at the Worcester Art Museum.
She has attended workshops locally and abroad. Mr. Jaworski’s photography and Mrs. Jaworski’s paintings are in art collectors’ homes from Maine to Florida.
