JOAN EARNHART

From there she joined Gallery West in Alexandria, and in Washington, DC, Touchstone Gallery and the Mahler Gallery respectively.

Joan considers herself a ‘creative storyteller’. In her assemblages, she employs and juxtaposes found objects, broken pieces of antiques, older objects that carry a history, and representational objects to relate an idea. Her art is frequently spiritual, sometimes humorous, and often considered beautiful, but when carefully examined, one might discover an underlying deeper meaning.
