“Memory Marks’ is the theme for an exhibit of art work by Joan Giroux, 2019 Fall artist in residence, at Hospice of Santa Barbara.
An opening reception will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 tonight in the Leigh Block Gallery at HSB, 2050 Alameda Padre Serra, Suite 100. The exhibit will be on display through Jan. 20, and 25 percent of the art gallery’s total sales will benefit HSB.
Ms. Giroux is an interdisciplinary artist, educator, compassionate activist, and death acceptance advocate whose work frequently provides context for community and personal reflections on loss, absence and bereavement through active play and participation.
In 2000, she founded Compassionate Action Enterprises with Lisa Marie Kaftori to create art and interaction geared toward ecofeminism, environmental ethics, social, political and cultural activism. Ms. Giroux is also a professor in Columbia College Chicago’s Art and Art History Department, where she teaches courses in studio art, art activism and professional practices.
