Janet Van Fleet shows her studio in Barre, VT at SPA

Recent work displayed at Janet Van Fleet's studio at Studio Place Arts (SPA) in Barre, Vermont. Her current work features half- to 3/4-lifesize figures made with found materials, though she works in a variety of materials, including collages made with wine foils, which are for sale in this exhibit at the Cabot Art Barn.

Janet Van Fleet and her husband R.D. Eno have lived in Cabot for 45 years. She grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico, studied briefly at the Art Institute of Chicago, then went on to earn a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Michigan and an M.A. in Education from Goddard College. She has been a professional working artist for over 20 years.

Van Fleet is a founder of Studio Place Arts (SPA), a three-story community center for the visual arts in Barre, Vermont, where her studio is located.

In addition to her own creative work, she has been active as a curator in the northeast, producing annual exhibits at Studio Place Arts, curating a two-floor, summer-long exhibit at Goddard Collage in 2017 on Social Justice, and organizing gallery exhibits for the Vermont Arts Council’s Art of Action in 2009-10. In 2010 she traveled to Nagoya, Japan for On the Planet, an exhibit in connection with the UN Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biodiversity.
