Joyce Yarbrough - Biography

 

 

2015 is another year of many exciting artistic challenges

ahead!  April  2015 - 2016 Joyce's papercutting will be at

the GAP National Museum exhibition "Inspired by Music"

in Somerset, PA.  May 22-June 19 her Silhouettes will be 

in an exhibition, "Agglomeration !" at The Hannibal Arts Council in Hannibal MO.   

 

In May 2014 an exhibition of Joyce's scissors-cut art, and wire-wrapped jewelry by

Mary Barge, "Paper & Wire Transformed" at the David Strawn Art Gallery, 

 Jacksonville IL, and jewelry  by Mary Barge.   In July-September two of Joyce's

botanicals were in a Cape Cod  juried exhibition, "A Cut Above", at Highfield Hall

& Gardens. From November 2014-January 2015, Joyce's "Storks" were exhibited  

 at the St Louis  Artist Guild Ann Metzger national juried exhibition.

 

In 2013, Joyce was Juror for the Paper-Cuts Exhibition at The  Foundry Art

Centre in Saint Charles, MO.   One of four artists invited to exhibit @ Stephens

College "Drawn, Cut, Torn and Pasted" in Columbia, MO in 2012, her art was also 

 exhibited at the Vreden Scherenschnitte Museum in Germany, the Pittsburgh

Center for Contemporary Craft, and the GAP National Museum in Somerset, PA.

Joyce was also co-ordinator for the Guild of American Papercutters Collection

2012 conference in St Louis in June.  Her art is currently on display at GAP 

National Museum in PA, and the Green Door Art Gallery in St Louis MO, as well 

as homes all over the world.

 

Well known for her skill with scissors, Joyce Yarbrough has also won awards for

pastel, handmade paper, pen & ink, and watercolor art.   Following graduation

from Missouri University, Joyce  worked at Hallmark Cards and studied art at

Kansas City Art Institute.  Working in the arts, as a graphic artist, illustrator, art

director, marketing co-ordinator and gallery owner, her talents have been

exhibited at fine art shows, museums, historic venues, galleries and many

special events.  Even as a literacy tutuor, she incorporated art into teaching 

children to read and write. 

 

"Nature is my source of inspiration and my challenge is to show the 'life' 

 of flower or even a feather, and decide which medium best achieves my

creative goal.  Experimenting with a variety of media, the positive and negative

interaction in nature continually  fascinates me.  Whether using scissors and

paper, pastels, pen & ink, or watercolor,   I see the "shape of things" before

seeing color or value relationships."
