Due to scheduling issues, we are postponing this event. We hope to be able to host Janet for a talk in 2022. Stay tuned for more details.
Janet Horne Cozens began studying art at the age of two in Japan and continued after her family immigrated to Northern Ontario. Her mother, a well-known Haiku poet, encouraged her to be creative and explore various media. Janet obtained degrees in Music Performance on violin from the University of Toronto and later, studied Fine Art at the Ontario College of Art (now OCAD).
Janet moved to southern Ontario in 1980 and began her extensive career in music. More recently, she has rediscovered her passion for the visual arts. Her works reflect on the Japanese principle of Kintsugi, a technique which highlights imperfections or mended areas of an object as a means of celebrating its complexity and beauty. She speaks of her own works as “interpretations” of people and places that capture underlying feelings, beliefs and passions.
Janet is a member of the Japanese Canadian Directory of Artists, the Women Artists Association of Hamilton, the International Society of Experimental Artists, and Centre3 in Hamilton. She recently placed second in the 2021 juried show of the International Society of Experimental Artists for one of her mixed media pieces. Her work has been included in exhibitions at the Art Gallery of Burlington, Print London, the Headwaters Arts Festival, the Grimsby Public Art Gallery and True North Gallery.
This event was scheduled for Tuesday, November 30 and has been postponed.
