What’s Going On? Contemplative Paintings with Joan Hanley

Tuesday, September 27–Friday, December 9

Spencer Presentation Gallery

Reception: Thursday, October 13 | 4–6 p.m. | Grillo Gallery

Gallery Talk: 5 p.m. | Spencer Presentation Gallery

Joan Hanley’s recent paintings explore experiences of intimacy during the Covid pandemic. She makes art of 'cellphone memories', that is, the snapshots taken on cell phones which circulate between family and friends. These impressions take on new meaning through her practice with oil paint, pencil, ink, and gouache. Hanley’s lifelong studies of Art, East Asian calligraphy, psychotherapy, and meditation are evident in each of these works that contemplate the embodied web of memory, emotion and technology that form our contemporary intimate connections.

*This exhibition is in partnership with the Endicott College Expressive Therapies Symposium
