Beerwah is very lucky to have a watercolourist of Joy Joyce’s capacity exhibiting at VIANTA. The exhibition ‘Memories, Memoirs, Memorabilia’ is a selection of her paintings which are memories of her travels, and of subjects that she loves.

Joy started painting at the age of forty, and, not realising that everyone didn't draw, she was astounded to find that she had a special feel for painting. Joy attended TAFE in Armidale, completing subjects in painting, drawing, and colour and design, for the arts certificate course. However, this course didn't include watercolour, and learning the technique of watercolour had become her main ambition.

After finishing the art course Joy attended every weekend school she could find, including several summer schools at Mitchell College in Bathurst, where Judith White introduced her to creative watercolours.

Since then Joy has won many prizes in the New England area, and has held solo exhibitions in Coffs Harbour, Texas Qld, Armidale, Maleny, and Longreach, and has participated in joint exhibitions, too numerous to name.

Joy has taught workshops there, and in Florida, Woodford , Armidale, Caloundra, Mackay, Coffs Harbour, Tamworth, Bribie Island, Barraba, and Bingara. As well as conducting Workshops, Joy teaches private students at her studio in Beerwah.

In her art Joy feels that each piece of art should take the viewer on a new journey of discovery, capturing their interest and imagination. She believes that each painting should depict movement, yet contain stability and peace.

Joy’s exhibition ‘Memories, Memoirs, Memorabilia’ will be on display at VIANTA Arts, 70 Simpson  Street, Beerwah, from May 1st to May 29th 2016, and opens at 6pm on Friday May 6th. Light refreshments will be served at the opening, and an a la carte menu will be available from 7pm – for table bookings call VIANTA on 0412 312 399.
