Solo Exhibition: Jo Lundberg

Works by Jo Lundberg, MA LPC, artist, art therapist, and child and family clinician, will be on display in Spare Gallery through April 2018.

Using the pew as a desk and kneelers as her seat, Jo Lundberg taught herself how to draw portraits during Catholic mass as a child. She never stopped doodling. Jo’s often up-cycles pieces of wood (or other re-used items, such as bed sheets) that are rescued from alleys, burn piles, carpenters’ detritus, ect. and uses the natural beauty of the wood grain as part of the composition. Often described as “surreal,” her work is inspired by the natural world, the sea, Frida Kahlo, human anatomy and the place where psychology and the human condition bisect. Her paintings meanings are often shrouded in symbolism. Jo has shown along the west coast, including Design For Humanity, an art, music and fashion show sponsored by Billabong at Paramount Studios in LA. Her work is in private and public collections, including St. Charles Medical Center in Bend, Oregon.

This exhibition coincides with the Creative Arts Therapies Conference at Marylhurst University April 20 – 22.

All are welcome to drop by anytime the Mayer Art Building is open: Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
