Come out to Meet the Artist: Joan Vienot at Anne Hunter Galleries on Thursday evenings in March and April from 5pm til 8pm!

Anne Hunter Galleries presents an exhibition: Sea & Sky by Joan Vienot. The exhibition will run from March 1 through May 1st, 2020.

Joan Vienot | SEA & SKY
“I am fascinated by the rapidly changing energy and imagery of both forms of water, from puffy summer cotton balls scudding across the sky, to dramatic threatening thunderheads, and similarly, the gentle lap of clear water on a calm day, and the roaring surf of an approaching storm.” Initially studying realistic color transitions and rhythmic patterns, the theme carried her into more expressive, iconic imagery.

Open daily, the gallery offers a number of opportunities to visit with the artist throughout the exhibition:
March 13 | 5PM – 8PM | Opening reception
Mondays in March and April | 9AM – 3PM | En plein air + artist demonstration + activities
Thursdays in March and April | 5PM – 8PM | Meet the artist
First Friday in March, April and May | 5PM – 8PM | Wine and cheese

South Walton artist Joan Vienot enjoys painting scenes outdoors, en plein air, operating out of her home and studio in the bayou-community of Point Washington at the eastern tip of the Choctawhatchee Bay. Joan was honored to be designated a Florida’s Finest en Plein Air Ambassador by the Forgotten Coast Cultural Coalition in 2016 and 2019. She is an avid paddleboarder and nature enthusiast, often returning to scenic areas, palette in hand, to capture on canvas another of our magnificent local scenes or landmarks.

Joan earned her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Fine Art from the University of Northern Colorado, and was certified to teach art in the public school system, which she did for three years in Colorado before moving to Florida in 1980. Joan’s large oil painting of a Caribbean scene hung behind the bar at Criolla’s Restaurant in Grayton Beach for the 20 years it was open. She was the featured watercolorist at Susan Foster’s Gallery at Grayton Beach in the mid-1980’s. In 1983, Joan started the premier swimming pool service company of 30A, Pool Pal, operating and managing it until she sold in late 2015. A dedicated volunteer in the community, Joan has served on the Board of Directors of the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County (2011 to 2017), chairing and co-chairing the A+Art/Visual Arts Committee, its mission to display member artists’ work in public spaces in Walton County. Presently Joan coordinates the Emerald Coast Plein Air Painters who meet as a group every Wednesday morning to paint outdoors at different locations in Walton and Okaloosa Counties. Email her if you would like to paint with the group.

“My paintings and drawings reflect my love of the natural world as I strive for effective expression of the truth and beauty I experience. My goal is to express my truth and to share with others in a way that helps them to see beauty and to think about my imagery in relation to themselves. By sharing my perceptions filtered through my worldview, I try to convey my understanding that we are one with each other and with nature.”

Joan also performs live-event painting at weddings, and presents workshops and private mentoring in drawing and plein air painting.
