About the Exhibition and Artist
Featuring the sculpture of Joanne Duby
Joanne Duby is a seasoned sculptor with more than 40 years of experience ranging from exquisite carving to instructing symposiums throughout the world. Hailing from Seattle, Wash., Joanne attributes her influence in regards to form to her insatiable appreciations for nature’s environment.
Duby’s studio is currently located at Art City in Ventura. Her passion for stone and carving is not only delightfully transmitted in her work, but through her unique ability to make ancient stones speak. Her focus remains on modern, abstract and contemporary art.
In addition to teaching at her studio, Joanne also performs restorations on damaged and weathered sculpture, as well as maintaining outside sculpture for collectors and museums.
Joanne is also one of the founding members and continuing board member of the California Sculptor Symposium.
