This exhibition celebrates the life and artwork of Joan Cobitz, a
"regular" at the Bean. An artist at an early age, Joan's work
spanned decades. she studied printmaking at the University of
Iowa under Mauricio Lazansky and considered herself
primarily a printmaker.
Her work speaks of the complex relationship between men and
women, the biology and physiology of being a woman, and
tells us these stories in pictorial fables. She also composed still
lifes with the objects from her kitchen, creating architectural
tributes to the meaning of sustenance.
Joan Cobitz was modest about the exhibition and promotion of
her work. This small show offers a glimpse into a literate,
psycologically astute mind and a life lived with art.
