JoAnne Chittick: Sitting Pretty
Join us for an opening reception on October 6th from 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM at the Copley Society of Art
The Copley Society of Art is proud to present Sitting Pretty, a solo exhibition featuring the work of Co|So Artist Member JoAnne Chittick. The exhibition explores the theme of chairs and the story each one tells through their distinct character, presence, and history. The exhibition will be on view in the Lower Gallery Alcove from October 6th – November 5th, 2022 at the Copley Society of Art, located at 158 Newbury Street, Boston, MA.
Sitting Pretty is comprised of over 40 paintings thematically capturing these chairs’ stories through oil on handmade paper. JoAnne Chittick remarks that the series was inspired by one little yellow antique Swedish chair. “Its design, color, and rustic appeal was irresistible, asking to be drawn and painted. As I looked around my house, I realized that so many other chairs – soft, welcoming gingham armchair; sturdy rocker on my studio porch; elegant living room wing chair; little wooden rockers from the childhoods of my own children, my mother, an elderly friend — are each individuals with a special look, character, and presence.” – JoAnne Chittick
