Healing Frequencies | Joanna Read
115 Empire Street, Providence, RI
September 1- 25, 2021
Artist Meet & Greet: September 16, 2021 5-7 PM in conjunction with Gallery Night, Providence
This exhibit of 22 drawings & paintings features integrative healing frequencies that have been working on and through RI artist Joanna Read over the last 18 months, drawing on mythical, ancestral, and energetic themes that have served to ground, empower, enliven and uplift her inner being in congruence with deep inner work. Motifs of the Divine Feminine Archetype and Seven Generations principle interweave throughout this collection of meditative images.
“This intimate body of work represents a soulful homecoming, and I am so grateful for the privilege to heal, create, express, and share.”
Along with supporting AS220, an additional 7% of all art sales will be donated to Ascend’s Evacuation, Resettlement, and Continuing Aid Fund. Ascend is a Kabul-based NGO that helps Afghan women discover the inherent value and potential in themselves and in others through intensive outdoor leadership training.
An additional 7% of sales support the Trevor Project, the only 24/7 suicide prevention helpline explicitly aimed at LGBTQ+ youth. The Trevor Project also offers expert-led suicide prevention and mental health crisis intervention training sessions for teachers, school nurses, counselors and others who can make a difference in a young person’s life.
Joanna has been serving the Rhode Island community for the last 12 years through art, nonprofit work, outdoor adventure experiences, and yoga teaching, and she works now as a professional artist, coach, and mindfulness educator.
