Diane Genetti and her husband Ralph moved to Akron from the East Coast . Diane was able to “retire” from social work and be at home to raise their two daughters and one son. She has been involved in the community through CEAA, the Revere School district, her church, P.E.O. and WAL.
In the mid 1990’s, while her three children were in college out of state, Diane returned to college. This time she pursued her dreams and received a degree in studio arts. Her passions are photography, ceramics, and traveling the world with her camera. She has been to 7 continents, all 50 states and 80 countries to date. Diane anticipates more adventures in the future.
It is her joy to record faces, places, flora and fauna. These are shared and remembered through her images. Exploring subjects very closely can be fascinating. There also can be a whole world in a backyard if one looks closely.
Diane has had her work shown at Summit Art Space, The Kaleidoscope Show, The Emily Davis Gallery at the Univ. of Akron, Bath Church, the First Congregational Church of Akron, The Mustard Seed Market, and the Akron Woman's City Club. She had a solo show of two hundred travel photographs titled " Some of the World as I've Seen It" at The Art Gallery of St. Paul's Episcopal Church. She also had a show with Rosanne Keillor and Annette Feltes (The Mud Sisters) titled "Pots and Flowers" Her work hangs in collections in Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, and Colorado.
