U.S.A. Today article "Amazing Art is Better Than a Museum", includes my commission

The Blackstone Hotel has played a prominent role in Chicago’s storied history since it opened more than a century ago, playing host to presidents, royalty, celebrities and even gangsters.

With an impressive art collection featuring more than 1,600 contemporary works of art, the luxury hotel continues to create a colorful legacy as a cultural destination in itself. In fact, it rivals some of the city’s most prestigious museums.

"The Blackstone has always been supportive of the artist community," says General Manager Kim Corrigan. "Its Beaux-Arts design is a work of art itself, and a dedicated art gallery was built within the original walls of the hotel upon its completion in 1910. Located on the Cultural Mile, it is only natural to bring this artistic spirit and creative culture to life every day for our guests and associates alike."

Committed to spotlighting Chicago and its local artists, the Blackstone Hotel recently commissioned new pieces to specifically represent the hotel, and made art the focus of both its public and private spaces. There is something interesting and beautiful to see everywhere you look, from the paintings in the lobby to the guest room key cards and do not disturb signs.

"What’s really special is that this world-class artwork isn't in a gallery or museum space," said Katherine Sharp of Nine dot Arts, who helped curate the project. "This is truly bringing art to the public, and that’s so important because people aren’t going to galleries the way they once did. The Blackstone is supporting artists in the best way possible: by actually buying their work for the hotel’s permanent collection and putting it on display for everyone to enjoy."

You can take a self-guided tour of the public pieces and relax with a drink at the unique Timothy’s Hutch. You’ll be able to sit and admire works like Painter by Celeste Rapone, which is placed prominently in the lobby to immediately put the importance of the art into focus.

But nothing beats staying at this iconic hotel and taking the elevator one story at a time to explore the different works of art that greet you on each floor.

Here are ten pieces you really need to see in person:

Painter by Celeste Rapone | Lobby

Celeste Rapone draws from themes of Dutch Golden Age painting, like portrait and still life. She loves to work with patterns and bold, often garish color palettes.

The artist in Painter doesn’t seem engaged in what they’re doing, which makes you want to know more about them. Rapone’s portraits are often referred to as “pretty” because the composition and color are on point but something is definitely off.

Portraits are expected to be beautiful, and this portrait hanging prominently in the lobby lets you know you’re in for lots of surprises as you explore the Blackstone’s art collection.

Orchid Stack VII by Stephen Eichhorn | Art Hall

Stephen Eichhorn has taken ikebana and floral arranging to a completely different level with his stunning series of orchid-based hand-cut collages.

They’re gorgeous from a distance, but the closer you get, the more awestruck you’ll be by his fluid, intuitive composition and the patterns, themes and textures he explores with such intricate detail.

The Blackstone Chronicle by Eric Garcia | 6th floor

You can learn so much about The Blackstone’s history through the graphic art of Eric Garcia.

Imbuing street art style with a historical perspective, he depicts The Blackstone’s reputation as “The Hotel of Presidents,” its place in movies like The Color of Money, its namesake, Timothy Blackstone, and its former owner, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. He doesn't leave out one of the hotel's most colorful guests, Al Capone, who used to hold meetings while getting his hair cut in the hotel’s windowless barbershop.

Neon Classic by Andrew LeMay Cox | 9th floor

Known for his renditions of paintings from influential artists throughout history, Andrew LeMay Cox has reinvented an Anthony Van Dyck portrait of Mary Villiers.

Deconstructing the themes of traditional Baroque art to satisfy contemporary standards of beauty, he dramatically changes the color palette and makes us look at the piece in an unexpected way.

Cooler by the Lake by Joyce Owens | 10th floor

Painter and sculptor Joyce Owens is a figurative artist whose work addresses issues around race and gender.

Her style of portraiture is more narrative, and is very much about sharing a story. Cooler by the Lake features a Chicago landscape in the background and two fictional characters based on Lena Horne and Nat King Cole, both of whom were frequent guests of the hotel and who represent the Blackstone’s jazz history.

Brutalized Gainsborough by Chad Wys | 11th floor

Chad Wys’ signature collages juxtapose the old with the new. The woman in this piece may be dressed in period style clothing, but the addition of the brush marks immediately makes it a contemporary work. The big, gold, sculptural frame continues to play on this theme.

Although the hotel tried to get a commissioned piece from Wys, he said he couldn’t make any art in the new political climate. For that reason, Brutalized Gainsborough is one of the few works in the Blackstone that is a poster rather than an original piece of art.

Architectural photographer Michelle Litvin spent 24 hours in The Blackstone, documenting the architectural details that are unique to the hotel and to Chicago.

So much of the original building’s architecture was preserved, and in this triptych, Litvin captures a fireplace in a guest suite, a chandelier in the Grand Ballroom and a window in the English Room. The title is the time stamp of each of the three photos.

Al Capone was sentenced to prison on October 17, 1931, and street artist WhIsBe pays homage to that infamous date with this irreverent piece, which is part of his Vandal Gummy Bear series.

The anonymous artist, whose name is short for What Is Beauty, creates prison mugshots of the sweet and much-loved candy bear holding an identity card to spark discussion and get people to explore their preconceptions.

Her whimsical illustrations reveal the inspiration behind the 53-foot-tall Alexander Calder stabile which stands proudly on Federal Plaza. Often referred to as simply “the big red statue,” Krol ensures you will never forget its name.

Ideas Filled the Air by Matthew Hoffman | 21st floor

A picture may be worth a thousand words but Matthew Hoffman, the artist behind the three million “You Are Beautiful” stickers distributed around the world, uses both to create powerful statements.

This wood piece was commissioned for the hotel, and was inspired by Suite 915 where Republican leaders once met secretly to nominate Warren G. Harding as their party’s presidential candidate. The suite is popularly referred to as "the smoke filled room," thanks to an AP reporter who described the scene of the secret meeting.

Dreaming Bigger in Strange Times, curator and exhibiting artist/Nov. 11-Dec.16, 2017

CHICAGO —Woman Made Gallery (WMG) is proud to present ‘Dreaming Bigger in Strange Times,’ opening on Saturday, November 11th through December 16, 2017. The final exhibition during WMG’s 25th Anniversary year, it is the second exhibition at WMG’s new location in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood. Chicago-based artist Joyce Owens is the curator for the exhibition including works by 17 women artists from diverse backgrounds and working in a variety of styles and media.

Featuring women artists currently residing in the Midwest, this invitational exhibition intentionally strives to reflect the independent thoughts, hopes, dreams and fears around the strangely volatile world we find ourselves inhabiting since the last election. The women, working in a wide range of art mediums, represent diverse ethnic and ancestral backgrounds. Many express their political, social, religious and ethnic beliefs through their work. After all, America has welcomed immigrants promising them freedoms they were denied at home from the first meal at Plymouth Rock. Others were not welcomed under equal circumstances, to put it mildly, and others who were here first got the worst surprise as payment for their original kindness. The focal point that speaks to each artist shows up in their work in subtle and/or overt ways that you will see if you look. Their artist statements will provide more insight. Neighborhoods in Chicago (and other cities around the world) are generally homogeneous, despite desegregation. This powerful group of artists will demonstrate that diversity makes us stronger! -Joyce Owens

Exhibiting artists: Joanne Aono; Rose Blouin; Arlene Turner Crawford; Anne Farley Gaines; Abi Gonzales; Patricia Larkin Green; Indira Freitas Johnson; Felicia Grant Preston; Kim Laurel; Nora Moore Lloyd; Joyce Owens; Jane Stevens; Lynn Tsan; Kathy Weaver; Shahar Caren Weaver; Rhonda Wheatley; and Trish Williams.

Curator: Joyce Owens

Ragdale Fellow Joyce Owens is a painter and sculptor with an MFA degree in painting from Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut and a BFA from Howard University in Washington, D.C. She was curator and associate professor of painting and drawing at Chicago State University. She has been the curator for numerous exhibitions including: The David and Reva Logan Center at the University of Chicago; The Fourth Presbyterian Church, Chicago; Elmhurst College, Elmhurst, IL; The Art Center in Highland Park, The Noyes Cultural Center, Evanston, IL; The Southside Community Art Center and others. As an arts panelist she has developed discussion topics for Columbia College Chicago, The Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, The School of the Art Institute, The Carver Museum in Austin, Texas, Nicole Gallery in Chicago; Bradle University in Peoria, IL, and the South Side Community Art Center, and she has been the juror for Black Creativity at the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago; The Old Town, Wells Street, and the DuSable Museum art fairs.

My idea back in 2005 or so was to put a black face on a Renaissance painting to illustrate that the white aesthetic originates (and is perpetuated) through art. That African Americans when not shown in positive visual images in paintings, photographs and movies, etc., will not exist in history except as how others choose to represent us.
The Renaissance inspired figure wears an African mask. What if African culture were as revered internationally as European culture and its imagery? Would people of the African Diaspora be better accepted and considered universally beautiful? Would the standard for physical beauty be dark skin and eyes, curly hair and a broad nose?

Joyce Owens' portraits represent life's ups and downs

http://www.pjstar.com/article/20130608/News/306089892
By Leslie Renken
Joyce Owens' "Retro-racing Picasso #5," a sculpture made of wood, copper and acrylic, is on display at the Contemporary Art Center of Peoria.

Joyce Owens' creativity can't be confined to a single medium. A talented painter, she adds elements of collage to both her painting and her sculptures, and some of her paintings have very sculptural characteristics.

But even with the diversity of style, there is one word that can be used to describe all her artwork - they're all portraits, images of people. For Owens, it all comes down to human beings.

"Where do the problems come from? Who can solve the problems? It's all about choices, to me anyway," said Owens during a recent interview from her Chicago home. Owens, who has a master of fine art from Yale University, is an art professor and curator at Chicago State University. She has won numerous awards and has shown her work extensively in the U.S. and overseas.

"Joyce Owens: Retrospective" will be at the Contemporary Art Center of Peoria through June 28. The show features mixed media paintings, sculpture, and a series called "More than Skin Deep" which, through the clever use of folds, turns painted canvas into a sculptural experience.

When queried if she wrinkles the canvas before or after painting, Owens laughs. "Everybody asks me that question. Art is supposed to make you think, if that's what people think about, that's OK - I love it."

Owens likes to be challenged by her work, and painting canvases after they've been intricately folded is certainly challenging. But the folds also have connotations which give the work not only literal dimension, but figurative dimension as well.

"The folds represent life - life isn't smooth. If we were a chart it would be up and down, and then down more, and then way down, and then up," she explained. "The paintings are like life - it's not perfect."

The wrinkles also hint at the many dimensions in the human personality.

"All you know about me is what I'm telling you, but there are other layers to me," said Owens. "So the folds on the canvas represent the obstacles that we have to overcome, we have to learn to overcome the bumps."

Many of life's bumps are caused by false assumptions people have about each other.

"In the "More than Skin Deep" series I'm applying it to race. I've done other series where I'm trying to get people to look beyond the surface of human beings," said Owens. "Basically we're all pretty much the same. The range between human beings of different ethnic groups is very minimal. We really are all humans, and we bleed red blood - all of us do."

Owens didn't begin her career thinking she would focus on issues of gender and race, but as an African-American woman, it's a topic she simply couldn't avoid.

"I don't think there was ever a time when I didn't experience something sort of racial," Owens said. In the mid-1960s Owens was chosen to be the art editor on the school yearbook at the predominately white high school she attended in Philadelphia. She submitted artwork for the selection process, and with a name like Joyce Owens, she believes the teacher didn't know until he met her that she was African American. After meeting her he tried to choose a different student for the job, and when Owens' parents stepped in, Joyce volunteered to share the role with the other student - the two girls were friends.

"My feeling was that it was not necessarily because I was black, but because I wasn't Jewish," said Owens with a laugh.

As an adult living in Chicago's predominantly white Lincoln Park, Owens often experiences subtle - and sometimes not-so-subtle - moments of racism. It's only natural for the issue to surface in her work.

"I'm not a racist-sort-of-civil-rights-human-rights person, but I like to, in a very nice kind of way, I want you to think about this stuff," she said.

Owens' work often highlights historical aspects of the African-American experience not commonly known.

"The figures and faces are sometimes portraits from history that I publish in accessible forms for people who are not historians and may not know about African-American history beyond slavery, poverty, and the Civil Rights struggle," said Owens in her artist's statement.

Figures and faces are all woven together in Owens' work as a way to show the interconnectedness of all human beings.

"My hope is that - well, I think that it's stupid that we don't get along," said Owens.

While issues of race are addressed in Owens' work, they are not the only ideas related. For Owens, art is a way of working out problems.

"My work changes as I change," said Owens. "From self-centered toward looking toward the future. When I was pregnant I drew a lot of pregnant people. . . . When my mother died, I drew people underground, sort of coming apart. That was my sadness - artists channel what they cannot see."

While Owens' art often presents ideas that inspire thought, the artist says she works intuitively - she doesn't plan the subject matter out ahead of time.

"With art you don't know exactly what you are going for until you have done it, and then you have to sit down and think about it," she explained. "As much as art school helps you to learn how to mix colors, and about linear perspective . . . you have to use those skills in your own personal way. You have to learn to trust your instincts."

The artist has had years to tune into her intuition and hone her skills. She knew when she was in third grade that she wanted to be an artist, and she came from a family of creative people for which art was a way of life. And while she hasn't always earned her living making art, she's always made art.

"I tell people that I don't need special conditions to make art," said Owens. "I don't need to be in the right mood or have special music. I'm an artist, and I make art. I don't know what made me an artist - I just do it 'cause I can't stop myself."

Curator "State of G/RACE" exhibition in Chcago at Woman Made Gallery

865 N. Milwaukee Avenue

Friday 9 November 2012
Sunday 23 December 2012

The 25th anniversary of Sapphire and Crystals at Woman Made gallery was bittersweet. Marva Jolly, one of the co-founders with Felicia Grant Preston died suddenly right before we opened. Sixteen artists participated, curator, Joyce Owens with the support of Beate Minkovski, Ruby Thorkelson and staff to make the exhibition a success. We added a Fine Art Holiday market that also had good results, with a screening of a documentary on the deceased member by Shuli Eshel.

Sapphire and Crystals:
Sapphire and Crystals is a collective of professional African American women artists. The artists decided to self-determine when, where and with whom they exhibited. Focusing on the aspect of collaboration, the women artists are committed to showcasing exciting new work for each exhibition. They often perform all tasks leading up to an exhibition, including curating, designing postcards and catalogs, prepping and installing the art and publicity and promotion. The group’s signature self-portrait silent auction during the opening reception presents affordable collecting opportunities for visitors on the first night only. The individual personal work by each member addressing various themes such as race and gender, limited palettes, and honoring our pasts, exemplifies the diversity within our ethnic group, one of the missions of the group. The collaborative site-specific installation is an exhibit feature distinct to this collective.

The collective's first exhibition was held at the historic South Side Community Art Century (SSCAC) in 1987; the group revisited the center’s Margaret Burroughs Gallery in the fall of 2010. The second exhibition in 1988 was held at Nicole Gallery in Chicago’s River North. The African American women artists returned to Nicole Gallery 21 years later in 2009. The group has exhibited at Elmhurst College's Frick Center, The Noyes Cultural Center in Evanston, IL, ARC, Woman Made, and Artemisia and many other galleries and art centers within the city and beyond.

Membership in Sapphire and Crystals is decided by existing members. We require that artists have begun seriously pursuing art on their own. Marva Pitchford Jolly and Felicia Grant Preston conceived of the idea of the organization that has included Annie Lee, Margaret Burroughs, Geraldine McCullough, Renee Townsend, Anna M. Tyler, Shirley J. Sullivan, Dorian Sylvain, Candace Hunter, Rhonda Wheatley, Shahar Caren Weaver, Shyvette Williams, Renee Williams Jefferson, Pearlie Taylor, Dorothy Carter, Joanne Scott, Makeba Kedem DuBose, Patricia Stewart, Venus Blue, Lillian Morgan-Lewis, Dorothy Carter and others. We bring in a few new artists on a regular basis who may show their works once or twice, and some artists have participated in multiple exhibitions over the past 25 years. We recently were honored by two public art works: at the National Museum of Mexican Art in 2010 six of us constructed an ofrenda to Dr. Margaret Taylor Burroughs, and currently the Chicago Public Art Group and the Hyde Park Art Center honoring the group with a mural showcasing selected artists in Hyde Park under the 51st Street viaduct. –Joyce Owens

Curator: Joyce Owens
Owens earned a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degree from Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. A professor of painting and drawing at Chicago State University, she also curates for the two on-campus galleries. Owens has been sought out to jury fine art exhibitions and art fairs at the Museum of Science and Industry, The DuSable Museum, Woman Made Gallery, the Women's Caucus for Art and The New East Side Art Fair to name a few. She has been a curator for many successful shows and an arts facilitator/consultant putting together artists with events.

Friday 20 July 2012
Wednesday 1 January 2014

Visions of Our 44th President is a collective sculptural show created to recognize and celebrate the historical significance of the first African American President of the United States of America, Barack Obama.

Wright Museum of African American History and Peter Kaplan. Dynamic and inspiring, the exhibit will include 44 artists' interpretations of our 44th President in three-dimensional form. In essence, the sculpture is a blank canvas upon which each artist can imaginatively celebrate the man, our history, and the collective journey to his presidency.

Artists include Barkley Hendricks, Charly Palmer, Melvin Clark, Louis Delsarte, Tamara Natalie Madden, Najjar Abdul-Musawwir, Kevin Cole, Najee Dorsey, Ted Ellis, Tyrone Geter, Paul Goodnight, Tyree Guyton, Kadir Nelson, Joyce Owens, Gale Fulton Ross, Cory Saint Clair, Preston Sampson, Felandus Thames, Mamie Willis, Preston Jackson, Philemona Williamson, Dayo Laoye, Shirley Woodson and others.

Press release

My art practice is literally figurative. I paint portraits on wood, wood boxes, paper and canvas. I produce mixed media constructions from found and other objects and collage on canvas. The various methods, materials and mediums sometimes determine what I will express. The range of ideas that I am attracted to, mostly around race and gender issues, can take many forms.


The figures and faces that I paint are often portraits from history that I want to publish in accessible forms for people who are not historians and may not know about African American history beyond slavery, poverty and the Civil Rights struggle. I also work with multiple, overlapping faces and bodies that form their own patterns, an idea around the interconnectedness of humanity that is clearer and clearer as we experience similar crises on a global scale. Some portraits are hidden in plain sight, either as masks or people-populated landscapes on canvas. Always, these faces express my interest in the underexposed images in American history.


Embracing my ancient ancestry, I have been making my own version of masks that at once give a nod to the traditional culture of the motherland, Africa, while revealing the modern universality of African traditional art that invigorated the art practice of my European ancestors. As we know they were greatly affected by the African indigenous art and artifacts they saw in museums after colonialism. I mostly use wood and metals along with acrylic paints in my 3-D. Improvisation influences my painting method, moving me to approach my canvas not absolutely certain where I am going, until arriving, having the goal of producing a portrait or figure that I don’t fully “see” it until I finish.


My art practice continues to be an adventurous exploration, in truth it is a search for me in many ways and a conversation with the viewers. I hope those who see my work will find a bit more of undiscovered humanity.

Two + Two = Preston, Jackson, Williams and Wheatley

Thursday 2 February 2012
Friday 23 March 2012

Four Chicago-based artists present an expansive range of art in this exhibition, which kicks off during Black History Month. Preston Jackson, professor
of sculpture at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago, delves into the nation’s past through depictions of well-known individuals and innovative portrayals
of less familiar figures who none-the-less played an important role in our history. Joyce Owens, curator of the Galleries Program at Chicago State University
where she also teaches painting and drawing, is a figurative painter who addresses issues around race using found and traditional materials. Her work asks us to question superficial responses, encouraging us to "look beyond the masks — the many faces we all wear” for deeper understanding. Bernard Williams,who taught at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago from 1991-2003, produces large scale installations and public art pieces that grow from two sources: his continuing examination of American and world history and culture; and an interest in archaeology, cartography, and ethnology. In many of his works, signs and symbols are used to comment on the complexities of history, human development, and movement through the ages. Rhonda Wheatley focuses on
language and the written word. She is interested in the often elusive act of trying to understand and translate one’s feelings into words, using this construct as inspiration for the fluid nature and movement of her paintings and collages on canvas and paper.

Public Reception: Thursday, February 2, 5 - 8 p.m.
