Siren

An Exhibition by Jo Coyle | August 26 – September 20

Gallery 194

Opening Reception: August 26 | 6pm

Artist Talk: September 7 | 5pm

Jo Coyle is a Maryland-based painter working in both figuration and abstraction. She will be bringing her most recent body of work, Siren, a series of portraits painted from life, to Chesapeake Arts Center for a solo exhibition. This is Jo’s personal statement about these paintings:

“This series will feature women (an extended definition of the word, in order to be as inclusive as possible and to consider stigmas regarding sexuality and transgenderism) who’ve had a history of mental health struggles, and/or a history of feeling oppressed by the stigma of mental health issues and the expectation to “keep it together” in social, familial, and professional settings in spite of these issues. Often there isn’t a safe space to discuss these struggles without feeling like we are drowning or dragging others down with us – and so I’d like Siren to serve as that space.

Gallery Hours:
Monday-Thursday 10:00am-6:00pm | Saturday-Sunday 10am-1pm
