Exhibit of My Artwork

I am honored to have been selected to show a series of recent prints at the Attleboro Art Museum, Attleboro, MA along with seven other artists.  We were chosen from 60 applications.  Since the space for the exhibit is quite large, the show is not crowded and the installation is beautiful.  If you are in the area, the exhibit is well worth a visit – not just because of my work, but because the other seven artists are showing very skillfully executed, intriguing work!  The show runs until the end of August, 2018.

As you can see, the prints that I am showing are a series of images of sticks and stones. I was inspired by the Japanese concept of wabi sabi, where the goal is to depict natural elements in a pure manner, yet with all the aspects of age, weathering, and nature’s idiosyncrasies.

This is the sculpture of Deborah Baldizar. The portraits are of anonymous immigrants who came through Ellis Island early in the 20th century.

And the photographer in the group, Fehmida Chipty , focuses on minimal architectural forms that display beautiful and subtle color tones.

    Congratulations, Joan. Your work is wonderful. The whole show looks great. Thanks for sending. I hope your foot and ear are both back to normal. I don’t have AC, so the recent heatwave has been mighty unpleasant. It has been a delight to have the grands around, however. Xox B
