Grid Row Exhibit
Artwork by: Janet Petrell Most kids in 4-H begin making crafts from egg cartons or soda pop bottles. But I’ve always had a rather unique view of the world, so I saw art in broken zippers-the vibrant colors, the dance of the gold and silver metals, the distinct shape.
My first piece was not rich in detail, but I thought the idea had “teeth.” Of course, my art classes in high school and college never explored such a unique medium, so I taught myself. To this day, I am a one of a kind folk artist. Often called outside art because it fails to be defined by a category, my work speaks to an audience who enjoys the unique. Grid Row is sponsored by the Arts Council of Williamson County.
View her work in the New Book Rotunda on the first floor of the Main Library.
