Biography:

Janet Morgan is an internationally exhibited artist living in Brooklyn. She was selected to be an artist in residence at the Weir Farm National Historic Site in Connecticut, and at the Center for Symbolic Studies in New Paltz, New York. The Brooklyn Arts Council recently published a lithograph of Ms.Morgan's, which was presented as a tribute award to Howard Golden, Brooklyn Borough President.

On her new site BellyDanceArt.com you will see that in the last few years she has created works of art inspired by her study of belly dance and its music. A series of six dance paintings won Best In Show at the Seventh Annual Medical Complex Exhibition at the Weill Cornell Medical Library in New York City. The dance inspired paintings have been used on posters for belly dance shows and workshops, and for a production of the play Shivaree by William Mastrosimone. Her large banner paintings, 8 by 8 feet each, have
been used in dance and musical performances.

Janet has traveled widely. She and the painter Gregory Frux were the first Americans to show at the National Museum of Art of Kyrgyzstan. She has painted landscapes inspired by her travels in Central Asia, Africa, South and North America.

Janet Morgan's first web site exhibits nearly half of the 150 paintings in the series Morgan's Supreme Beings: The God and Goddess Project, with contributions in word and art by a wide range of people, from physicist to actor. Some of her ceramic pieces are also featured on this site. She has illustrated a number of fine press books and broadsides, which are in the collection of New York Public Library Rare Book Room and many other libraries around the world.
