An exhibition of works on paper, Joan Brown : In Living Color, reflects the bold originality and the continued impact Brown has had on artists, educators, and collectors in the Bay Area and beyond. Joan Brown’s deep determination and humanistic commitment catalyzed artists in the San Francisco Bay Area to forge a path against the grain of formalism in upholding the narrative. The core of Joan Brown’s life and experiences became the subject of her art.
Joan Brown : In Living Color reveals the intimate and personal in the renderings of an artist who never stopped drawing. Any piece of paper could be taken in hand for notation of child, cat, dream, or view of oneself. Many of these works come from the artist’s estate and have never been exhibited publicly.
We are deeply grateful to the following individuals and organizations who have generously sponsored this exhibition:
