Joan Birkett

Happy Friday!  We are just a week away from the opening of “Reading Between The Lines” at Launch Pad Gallery!  Work is still in progress, but we install next Monday and Tuesday.

Today, we want to introduce you to the work of Joan Birkett.  On the English side of things, She has been instrumental in developing and sustaining this connection between St. Helens/Northwest England and Art Byte Critique.  We are excited to have her work as part of the exhibition and looking forward seeing them in person.
