Michael Janosky grew up in Michigan City and has had a lifelong appreciation for the beauty and splendor of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.
So as a landscape artist, it is no surprise that the natural wonder of Indiana Dunes National Park is prominently featured in many of his oil paintings.
“I paint in a representative style, and with my brushwork attempt to convey movement within the landscape,” said Janosky, a Noblesville resident whose work is among the first on display at the new gallery space at Hub & Spoke in Fishers. “The sky, trees and grasses provide opportunities for an artist to make a painting come alive.
“I enjoy painting not only the dunes scenes (displayed in) the Hub & Spoke exhibit, but also the landscape of central Indiana.”
A former artist-in-residence at Indiana Dunes National Park, Janosky is a juried-artist member of Indiana Artisan and the Indiana Artists Club. Thirty-two of his Indiana Dunes landscapes are on display in the hallway galleries at Hub & Spoke, a mixed-use development at 8100 E. 106th St. in Fishers. The new public gallery space was created through a collaboration with Nickel Plate Arts, High Frequency Arts and Hub & Spoke.
Janosky, whose exhibit opened July 1 and runs through September, was among the first local artists featured in the new space.
“Hub & Spoke offers an opportunity for artists to connect and collaborate with new audiences,” Nickel Plate Arts Executive Director Aili McGill stated. “Hub & Spoke gathers together designers, fabricators, tradespeople and creative entrepreneurs in one amazing space.”
Patrons can view Janosky’s exhibit and the work of Nickel Plate Arts network artists Beth Forst and John Dierdorf at Hub & Spoke during business hours, Monday through Friday. A special reception and celebration will be conducted from 4 to 7 p.m. Sept. 10 to dedicate the new gallery space.
