Joyce Howell: Solo Show

Joyce Howell: Solo Show . April 4-26, 2020

Read "When the Work Stopped", a blog post by Joyce written a few weeks after the Covid pandemic put a halt to our lives and her planned 2020 show.

The act of painting, for Howell, is an internal navigation based on instinct and rooted in nature. Her paintings are attempts to transfer sensory memories to a visual reality. She seeks rhythm and contradiction in her hues, marks and textures.  Each painting is an attempt to tap into the beauty that appears spontaneously at her feet and in her memories – a call to pay attention.

To our valued community - We have made the decision to be open by appointment only until further notice. However, we will be releasing exciting new virtual content directly from our artists every few days! Art creates human connection and we are committed more than ever to continue providing this service. So, expect studio videos, photo essays and podcasts in your inbox to entertain you while we all get through this together.

In the meantime, we are happy to meet you at the gallery or bring pieces directly to your home. Email to set up an appointment.

All our best,  
Rachel, Wally & Kathryn
