Personal mythology

I admit it, we have our favorites. Take Joan Gallagher Richmond for example: Always seeking feedback and open to criticism, she seems genuinely humbled by our representation. It's a pleasure to sell work by someone so modest and likeable.

Joan's had her work in the gallery for the past year or so, and her drawings really stand out. They are intimate in scale and detailed — using references from personal mythology, medieval times and even theatrical set design (she's an opera fan, and we can see why).

Recently, she's been working on a series of graphic cut-outs using her imagery and construction paper with colored pencil. It's been fun to watch her progression and I look forward to the day when she commits to a solo show with the gallery.
