About the Artist
Joanna Stuart is an artist in New Haven, CT and New York City. Photographs are the foundation of her art.
She uses innovative techniques to create collages by combining fragments of her photographs to reveal imaginary interiors, urban/rural landscapes, and nonrepresentational images. She also makes unaltered photographs of a wide range of subjects, including urban scenes, people in transit and at work, nature, and inorganic phenomena.
Joanna has shown her art in numerous venues. She has had solo private exhibits in New Haven and Brooklyn, a solo gallery exhibit in New Haven, and a 2-year rotating solo exhibit in a New Haven café. She also had two solo exhibits inside the historic and beautifully restored Union Station in New Haven, and subsequently co-curated and exhibited in four small group exhibits in the same station. After six consecutive years, these annual art exhibits at Union Station have become a tradition. The New Haven Register and Shore Life featured Joanna’s 2015-2016 exhibit of photographs at Union Station as the first art exhibit to be held in that busy public venue.
Her work was selected for two National Juried Exhibits in NYC and one International Juried Exhibit in California, and was honored with the Juror’s Choice Photograph in a Juried Group Exhibit in Vermont. Her work has been shown in Juried and Small Group Exhibits in New England states, Upstate NY, NYC, and California, in an online international art journal, as well as in a Massachusetts gallery’s online photo exhibit.
In addition, Joanna participated in New Haven’s Open Studio, contributed to a benefit exhibit for Visual AIDS in NYC, and was a winner in a photograph contest sponsored by Friends of East Rock Park, New Haven. Her works reside in homes in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Iceland, Israel, Mexico, Portugal, the U.K., and throughout the U.S.
Joanna's work is currently exhibited on the website of the Agora Gallery in the Chelsea art district, Manhattan, NYC.
