COVER | Joan Brown
Leela, 1983 (lithograph). Joan Brown was a well-known American figurative painter and member of the "second generation" of the Bay Area Figurative Movement. Her work can by seen in the exhibition Joan Brown: In Living Color on display at the Richmond Art Center's South Gallery through Nov. 18. The collection reveals the work of an artist who never strayed from recording the everyday: a child, a cat, a dream, or a view of oneself. Many of these works, reflecting Brown's bold originality in her commitment to humanism, come from the artist's estate and have never been exhibited publicly. This lithograph for the cover, Leela, was printed by Tamarind Institute, is copyrighted by the Estate of Joan Brown, and is courtesy of Magnolia Editions. The Richmond Art Center, 2540 Barrett Ave., is open Tue.-Sat., 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Gallery admission is free. www.RichmondArtCenter.org.
