A signature work by Joanie Gagnon San Chirico.

GALLOWAY – The Noyes Museum of Art of StocktonCollege will present an artist talk by Joanie Gagnon San Chirico 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13. San Chirico is a Noyes Signature Artist whose work is on view Friday, Sept. 7-Sunday Nov. 25.

She will address “Art in Public Spaces.”

When you walk in to a public building such as a library, corporate office, a hospital or a hotel, have you ever wondered who makes the art that's hanging on the walls? San Chirico will discuss and present slides explaining how she completes commissioned work for public spaces.

A full-time studio artist with an extensive exhibition record, she integrates her love of stitch with her fascination with the past, constructing modern abstract art from ancient imagery.

San Chirico often showcases natural surfaces using imagery which is meant to remind the viewer of what could potentially be lost from nature. Using various pigments, dyes, stitching and manipulation of cloth, paper and paint in many of her pieces, she operates under the philosophy that “art is mysterious in design and reverent in interpretation.”

She is also an independent curator who has created exhibits of fiber art in New Jersey, Texas and New York City.

Noyes Signature Artists is an exhibition of works including paintings, sculpture and mixed media. An opening reception with the artists is planned 5-8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5. Admission is $5 for adults. Seniors 65 and older pay $4. Students with ID pay $4. Admission is free for Stockton students, members and children 6 and under. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
