Artist, Jo Caldwell is offering a rare chance to see this stunning and personal collection of art displayed together during her solo exhibition at Gallery 21 May 7 - 20, 2024. Free. Opening May 11, 2-4PM

Jo’s description of this show: “Life is a mystery. Are we spirit and part of a dream? Or merely passing memories. My work is about that mystery in each of our moments. We are full of echoes of the past and present. Caught up in rites and symbols. Living in different circles of power. One of thousands of Ancestors yet relentlessly bound together.”

Jo Caldwell grew up in a pine forest in New England and studied oil painting at the Museum of Fine Arts School in Boston. There she was trained in the exacting European traditions brought by artists who fled from Europe and its nightmares. She was wrenched from this life of creativity to live in virtual isolation for many years in a Quaker community in the jungles of Costa Rica. During that time she immersed myself in literature, philosophy and social conceits.

Art was not only the central gift of her childhood but put Joe on a path that eventually led her to earn a BA in 1988 from UCSD, followed by an MFA from Cal State Fullerton - where she taught a class in Beginning Painting in the fall of 1993.

“Journey Into Light” is on display at Gallery 21 May 7 - 20, 2024 from 11:00 – 4:00 PM daily. A free public Opening Reception will be held Saturday, May 11th from 2:00 – 4:00 PM. Come explore this amazing collection of work by one of San Diego’s premier artists!
