Press Release

March 2008, Philadelphia, PA – Locks Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Joy Feasley. The exhibition will be on view June 6 through July 12, 2008. There will be a reception for the artist on Friday, June 6, 2008, from 5:30 to 7:30pm.
 
For this exhibition, Feasley has continued to create the work for which she is known - paintings that integrate landscape, abstraction, pattern and decoration, folk art and figurative imagery. Feaseley uses a bold and flat color palate to help define her intimately-scaled paintings. Her paintings suggests the landscape experienced outide cities - remote forests and mountaintops. The works also retain a sense of place, at times referencing the Hudson River School, and on occasion reflecting actual locations such her home in Philadelphia, or scenic California, where she often takes residency to paint.
 
For the 2007 exhibition Locally Localized Gravity at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, Feasley contributed to the Philadelphia-based co-operative LURE’s greenhouse project. She helped create the greenhouse structure, an environment which held her own artwork as well as that of her community of collaborators. At the close of the exhibition, Feasley moved the structure to adjoin her own home in North Philadelphia, where it is now used as a studio.
 
Feasley has exhibited extensively in Philadelphia, including recent solo shows at Temple Gallery, the Samuel S. Fleisher Art Memorial, and Project Room. Her work has also been exhibited in recent group and solo exhibitions in Chicago, Raleigh, and Tokyo.
