About the Artist

Joanna Stuart is a photographic artist in New Haven, CT and New York City.


She explores innovative techniques to create collages formed by combining fragments of her photographs to reveal imaginary scenes and abstract designs. She also makes unaltered photographs of a wide range of subjects.

Joanna has shown her art in numerous venues. She had a solo gallery exhibit in New Haven, solo private exhibits in New Haven and Brooklyn, and a 2-year rotating solo exhibit in a New Haven café. She organized two additional solo exhibits inside the historic and beautifully restored Union Station in New Haven, and subsequently co-curated two small group exhibits in the train station. After four 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. Joanna’s work was also 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, she 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.

Joanna’s works reside in homes in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Iceland, Israel, Mexico, Portugal, the U.K., and throughout the U.S.
