JoAnne Carson: Rise Up and Shine! Curator’s Tour and Opening Reception
Friday, February 7, 5:00 pm–8:00 pm
Opalka Gallery is pleased to present a 25-year survey of the work of JoAnne Carson. From her punchy, exuberant paintings to her quirky, zoomorphic sculptures and expressive drawings, Carson has established a unique artistic voice that merges references to the natural world with strange juxtapositions, unexpected materials, and playfully dark moods. Despite few figures in her work, every shape Carson creates bursts with life: trees, rocks, and flowers bow, droop, pose, and even vogue.
