Janos Enyedi Moves Furnace Road Studio South
May-Oct, 2011

Janos and Diana Enyedi moved to Mason Neck, Virginia on Nov. 1, 1986, to a small cottage surrounded by woods. Almost immediately they built Furnace Road Studio in which Janos created art – welded steel, 3 dimensional wall reliefs of paper construction, drawings, paintings and digital photographic prints, for nearly 25 years.

In the spring of 2011 Janos and Diana moved to St. Petersburg, FL and began renovating a commercial 2700 sq. ft. building as a live/work space – Furnace Road Studio South. They joined what is a very active artist community.

The renovation was nearing completion in September 2011. Janos and Diana were very pleased with the progress, happy with their new home and hopeful for the future. On September 25th, the St. Petersburg Times, Neighborhood section ran an article, Community of artists crafts a place to call home, which quoted Janos extensively about his move to the Dome District, an artists' enclave in St. Petersburg. Janos read the article that Sunday morning on his new patio with his 1st cup of coffee. Satisfied with the article, he got a 2nd cup of coffee and returned to the patio to do the crossword puzzle while Diana gardened nearby.

After a few minutes Diana found Janos slumped over the crossword. He had suffered a heart attack. Janos was rescusitated, taken to the ER, had immediate heart catherization to repair the damage, and in the following days appeared to be on the road to recovery. Howver, Janos developed complications and died on October 6, 2011.

Hurly Burly greets the residents and visitors to the building. A low circular stone wall bench which surrounds the plaza invites one to stop for a respite.
