Arty Girl: Jana Peterson at Chandler Center for the Arts

Casa Gilardi by Jana Peterson

I have to admit, that last blog took a lot out of me.

So instead of droning on about complicated matters, I'm going to keep this one short and sweet.

Chandler Center for the Arts has a new show opening today by painter Jana Peterson. I have to say, after reading about Peterson, she just might be a little bit artier than Arty Girl.

Peterson has degrees in interior design, dance and art education. She tackles a bunch of different art styles including architecture, abstract, landscape, trompe l'oeil...etc. And she's snagged some pretty good clients: IBM, GTE, Motorola, VLSI, Mayo and more. Oh, and she's a flamenco dancer on her downtime.

You'll see a collection of her contemporary works at the artist reception tonight from 7 p.m.-9 p.m.

There. Done. Short enough for ya?

"Vibrant Insights: The Artwork of Jana Peterson" opens today at Chandler Center for the Arts, 250 N. Arizona Avenue, 480-917-6859,
