Alumna's Solo Exhibition Explores the Ocean

Joan Hall's "Dying Ocean" (detail)

Fine Arts alumna Joan Hall (CCAD 1974) has a solo exhibition, Marginal Waters, at Bruno David Gallery in St. Louis, MO, on view through Oct. 13.

Hall has been fascinated with the ocean for years and has traveled more than 25,000 miles as a skilled navigator and sailboat racer.

Through her use of Mylar and handmade paper, viewers will recognize marine debris and plastic pollution that infiltrate our oceans. Having previously explored the ocean and its relationship to the body, Hall’s work has expanded into consideration of the ocean's relationship to the body of global society, of which we are all members.

This is Hall’s second solo exhibition with the Bruno David Gallery, which was founded in 2005 and specializes in contemporary art.
