Joan Brown, 2024



Comprising over forty colorful paintings and sculptures, Joan Brown spans the engaging career of one of California’s most important artists. Deeply embedded in the Bay Area art scene, Joan Brown (b. 1938, San Francisco; d. 1990, Puttaparthi, India) drew inspiration from many sources to create works that merge autobiography, fantasy, and whimsy, with weightier metaphysical and spiritual themes. This retrospective is the most expansive presentation on the artist’s work in more than twenty years, charting the turns and devotions of a vision that was once dismissed by critics as unserious but was rooted firmly in impassioned curiosity and research and remains uniquely compelling today.
