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.   In my work, architecture breathes with the life of its community.   My...more
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. In my work, architecture breathes with the life of its community. My primary subjects are bridges, architecture, urban landscapes, landscapes, and historical sites. Architecture embodies and reflects the people of a community. It can lift up a neighborhood, or bring it down.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.

**This is a poetry book 'Music From a Farther Room' by John Hughes recently published. My painting, 'Hallway', is featured on the cover. It is available through Amazon. This would be an awesome gift for anyone who enjoys poetry!

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 http://ladifference.spreadshirt.com to order T-shirts and accessories. My work is also available on http://etsy.com/shop/rennerladifference, www.rawartists.org/joannrenner, and published my independent website http://ladifference8.wix.com/joannrenner/bingsiteauh.xml. Time to spruce up your home for spring!

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 www.rawartists.org/joannrenner. 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: https://gofundme.com/joannrenner. Thank you for believing in me!
