About this Event

Join us for a virtual afternoon conversation with abstract painter Joan Thorne from her NYC SoHo studio. This private tour brings you directly into the artist’s personal workspace as she shares her process, ideas and canvases for an afternoon filled with color, texture and patterns.

Brought to you in partnership with the ODU Office Of Community Engagement

Biography: Thorne, who was born in New York City, trained at New York University and at Hunter College in the 1960s under noted sculptor and art theorist Tony Smith (1912-1980). She burst onto the New York art scene as one of the few women in the Whitney Museum's 1972 annual show, "Contemporary American Painting," alongside Georgia O'Keeffe, Helen Frankenthaler, Alice Neel and Audrey Flack. The Barry Art Museum's collection includes two artists represented in that show, Al Held and Jules Olitski.

A solo show at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington in 1973 further established her national reputation, and international invitations followed to present her work in France, the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. She has held several highly regarded awards and artist residencies, including a Prix de Rome in Visual Arts awarded by the American Academy.
