Joy Walker Variety
Mixed Media
open September 12 - close October 10

Variety is a reconstruction of my studio wall. An ever-changing display, the wall is a snapshot of pieces in various states of completion; the steps and sidesteps that eventually lead up to a finished piece. Included are ephemera, working drawings, experiments, prints, mistakes, and objects - everything traditionally left out of the storefront window.

Joy Walker is represented by MKG 127 Gallery, Toronto.

convenience is a window gallery that provides an opening for art that engages, experiments, and takes risks with the architectural, urban and civic realm.

24/7 window gallery
