Joy! Joy Halsted | what I’ve been doing in the time of …. (covid) opening November 13th Jane Deering Gallery . 19 Pleasant Street . Gloucester, MA. 

‘There is no artist on earth like Joy Halsted,’ wrote Pat Lowery Collins in her 2015 interview with the artist. The multi-faceted Halsted is an inventive, provocative, irreverent, playful, politically-aware, and process-oriented artist.  And what has Joy Halsted been doing these many months since life and Covid-19 locked her and all of us indoors?  Using process once again to compulsively knit. To knit hats with corona pompoms attached at the top.  Anti-corona hats, as Joy nicknames them.  

‘Humor is our saving grace,’ she writes. ‘The atmosphere is serious; we’re all feeling a bit lost. As an artist, I felt the need to raise spirits; to offer a new perspective.’
