About Joann Renner

I strive to use color and composition to engage the viewer to make their own interpretation of my work and subjects. I love old architecture, and how color and light move over the architectural elements and textures. Often I include a feeling of the intangible within a place or thing, through my perception of it. It can be beauty, awareness of past events and their effects on the community consciousness, the vibrancy of everyday life in a community, or simply a sense of being. My primary subjects are bridges, architecture, urban landscapes, landscapes, and historical sites. The issue of inclusion of long-term, current residents, most of whom built the character of their neighborhoods and urban areas, in revitalization efforts is a major focus of mine. Animal subjects are a bread-and-butter staple.
Originally from southcentral PA, I spent a lot of time growing up in both Seaside Heights, New Jersey and Pa Dutch country depending on my parents' work. I have a BA in Studio Art/Art History from the University of Pittsburgh, 1986. I have had 4 solo exhibitions and participated in numerous juried and nonjuried group exhibitions since then. In 1999 I received the Judges Citation Award from WITF Gallery 33 On The Air. I took some time off to raise my family and have now restarted my career. Current member of the Pittsburgh Pastel Artists League. I work primarily in oils and pastels, my secondary medium is drawing. I have other ideas in the works for experimenting with other mediums later on. Recently, I completed a project for a local startup thoroughbred racing stable, which included business graphics, designs for jockey silks and a custom oil painting. My primary influences have been my mentors while in college-Paul Binai, Ken Batista, James P. Nelson, Paul Glabicki, Girts Purins, Joseph Shepler, and Phil Rostek. German Expressionism, the post-Impressionists, and Japanese woodblock prints, esp. artists like Whistler, Cezanne, Wolf Kahn, Hopper, F. Church, among others. There are some images that I have copyrighted under my maiden name of Kohr, they are not by someone else.

Any questions are welcome. You may contact me for handcolored signed versions of the drawings, for custom work, and for gallery/representation/publishing or licensing inquiries. Also, look for my original T-shirt designs at to order T-shirts and accessories. My work is also available on,, and published my independent website Time to splurge on yourself!

See our booth of antiques, collectibles and artwork at Neighborhood Flea 2300 Penn Ave. in the Strip District Pittsburgh 2nd Sundays and at Fleatique Tour-ed Mines in Tarentum, PA 3rd Sundays weather permitting . I hope to be exhibiting at the RAW Spring Artists Showcase, at Mr. Smalls Theater in Millvale, PA (Pittsburgh). To view my profile and/or to purchase tickets go to See you there!

I also have a GoFundMe campaign to help with exhibition fees and expenses as I am just restarting the art festival and exhibition aspect of my career after taking 20 years off to raise my family. It's very hard to take from the family budget for festival fees and to purchase the very specific displays required. Here's the link: Thank you for believing in me!
