Artist Janet B. Sessoms Shows at Burgwin-Wright

The Burgwin-Wright House will ring in the New Year with a show by local artist, Janet B. Sessoms. “Regional Experiences” will open with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Jan. 25 and will remain on display through Feb. 16.

Sessoms, who works primarily in oils, describes her style as painterly realism. Her paintings reflect her fascination with the effects of light on the environment and inanimate objects, as well as her fondness for the landscapes of the southeast.

Sessoms wanted to be an artist since the age of 8. An art educator for 22 years, Sessoms retired seven years ago and has been realizing her dream ever since. A self-described lifelong learner, she enjoys taking workshops by nationally renowned artists.

Sessoms maintains a studio at theArtWorksTM and is an active member of the Wilmington Art Association. To view the artist’s portfolio visit

Built in 1770, the Burgwin-Wright House and Gardens is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Guided tours are offered on the hour from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Visit for more information about Fourth Friday, tours and other special events.
