September Exhibit: Joanna Barnum Watercolor

September 1, 2021 @ 8:00 am September 26, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

This September we are pleased to welcome exhibiting solo artist, Joanna Barnum, into our Dark Gallery.

For First Friday in September, Joanna will be available for the Opening Ceremony to meet fans, old and new.Join us as we welcome Joanna into our Dark World.

Joanna Barnum is a painter working in watercolor to create emotional portraits and haunted illustrations. Her portrait work simultaneously expresses universal emotional states and the unique spirits of her portrait subjects. The goal is for the viewer to feel a sense of commonality or vicarious catharsis through the emotions conveyed, which include the exploration of female rage as well as more subtle emotions such as mindfulness, nostalgia, and longing. However, the subjects are also depicted as individuals, rather than generic symbols or decorative objects. Joanna also creates illustrations using traditional horror iconography such as haunted houses and bones (heavily influenced by a childhood love/hate relationship with spooky stories) to explore the existential fear of being human and contemporary issues such as the threat of climate change.


Free Free Entry to see the exhibit. Works available for purchase.
