Flora: Paintings by Janet Alling, Janet Alling

After graduating from Yale University Art School in 1964 (MFA), Janet Alling had a revelation that she would devote her career to expressing aesthetic statements through flowers. Alling’s paintings are a development and progression of formal visual ideas, color exploration, light, composition, scale, and the phenomena of the natural world.

A native of New York City, Janet Alling now lives and paints in Providence, Rhode Island. In June 2010, The Newport Art Museum, Newport, Rhode Island, honors her with an exhibition of work selected from her 50-year career.
