Joe Anna Arnett

In the words of the artist:

“Sunflowers entwined with bright trumpet vine, a chateau perched on a cliff, derelict boats on the Louisiana bayou, the antics of roosters and chickens. The subject of a painting is nothing more than the artist’s opportunity to express herself in form, color, line, atmosphere, and mood. The whole world is a place filled with possibilities without limits, without borders. Every day is exciting. Around every corner, whether it be in an intimate garden or the view from a castle rampart, is yet another thrill to be experienced with paint and brush.”

Joe Anna Arnett was raised in Texas. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Texas and shortly afterward moved to New York. As a Senior Art Director for Young and Rubicam Advertising, she worked on such accounts as Merrill Lynch and “People” magazine. During this time she also continued her studies in fine arts at the Art Student’s League. In 1984, Arnett moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico, and married artist James Asher in 1985. Since that time, they have embarked on a lifelong adventure of traveling and painting together throughout the world. Recently the two have been the featured artists in an ongoing television program called “Passport and Palette” that is broadcast on PBS stations across the country.

Known for her floral, still life, and plein air painting, Joe Anna Arnett has exhibited at the Albuquerque Museum of Fine Arts, the Colorado Historical Society, the Tucson Museum of Fine Arts, the Gilcrease Museum in Oklahoma, the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts in Alabama, the Cincinnati Museum Center in Ohio, the National Cowgirl Museum in Texas, and the Ellinore Ettinger Gallery in Hong Kong. She has participated in the “Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition” at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma since 1996.

In 2006 she was a featured artist at the Gilcrease Museum’s “Rendezvous Exhibition and Art Sale.”
