Joanne Grossmann: the Larger Narrative
Free Public Reception:
Friday, October 20, 6 - 9 p.m.
A revival of emotionally evocative, large-scale oil paintings from the 1970s through the year 2000, created by late Toledo-area artist Joanne Grossmann.

Strong in visual storytelling, the paintings feature compelling scenes rich with emotion and nostalgia while hinting at a quality of suspense. Utilizing settings with figures seemingly isolated within their own landscapes, Grossmann’s works in oil invite viewers to explore the many layers of their stories.
Many of the exhibited paintings formerly appeared in distinguished, national, museum exhibitions. These legacy paintings are powerful emissaries of Grossmann’s career as a professional artist—the canvases both engaging and disquieting in their unspoken narrative.

20 North Gallery and members of the Grossmann family will be welcoming friends and collectors at the free Public Reception for Joanne Grossmann: the Larger Narrative on Friday, October 20, from 6 – 9 p.m. The reception will feature a free appetizer buffet and cash bar by Venue, 20 North Gallery's event lounge.

The exhibit continues through December 30, 2017.

Regular gallery hours are Wednesdays through Saturdays from noon to 4p.m. To schedule a private appointment to view the exhibit, call or email:  [email protected]
