Spanning 50 years of Joellyn Duesberry's art career, with critical essays by Karen Wilkin, David Curry, Carl Little, Ann Scarlett Daley, and Duesberry, along with an interview by Blake Milteer, forewords by Robert Adams and John Walsh.
Ms Duesberry is nationally recognized for her dynamic landscape paintings. She divides her time between studios in Denver, Colorado and Millbrook, New York, and has painted plein-air around the world. She began exhibiting in New York City in 1979, and has since had ten New York solo exhibitions, with recent retrospectives at the Century Association, Denver Art Museum, and the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. In 1986 she was awarded a National Endowment for the Arts grant, which enabled her to work with Richard Diebenkorn who encouraged her to try monotype print-making. Since that experience, she has actively produced and exhibited monotypes alongside her plein air paintings. An exhibition of her monotypes titled "The Covenant of Seasons" travelled nationally for a decade. Duesberry's paintings are in numerous museum, public, and private collections around the country. In 2005, a PBS documentary titled “Joellyn Duesberry: Dialogue with the Artist” was made of her life, work, and creative process.
