Gallery at the Garden presents: Artist Joan Peters “Banners Through Four Seasons”
2 September, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 6 September, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
Banners Through Four Seasons. A series of paper banners inspired by Chinese and Japanese art, seed packets and Joan’s training as a scenic painter.
Meet the artist during Gallery walk on Friday, September 6, 5:30 until 7:30. Music will be provided by Patty Carpenter and Verandah Porche.
Since graduating from UMass Amherst with an MFA in theater design, Joan Peters has spent much of her professional life as a costume designer and architectural color consultant. A half step back from these activities has allowed her more time to paint on paper. Joan has long been drawn to the banner format, inspiration received from Chinese and Japanese art. She favors strong color and simplicity of form in celebration of the natural world.
Complementing the exhibit are the series of painted silk banners, hanging overhead, completed some years ago for Strolling of the Heifers. These pieces were the product of a fruitful artistic collaboration with Patricia Burleson.
