Memorial for JOAN
Sunday, November 2nd
at Fleckenstein Gallery
1926 - 2014
It’s with great sadness that
we acknowledge the peaceful passing of
beloved Baltimore artist JOAN ERBE
on August 21st, just a few months shy of her 88th birthday.
A headstrong, feisty woman,
she created a whole universe of colorful characters drawn
from the side show performers, actors and other artists she encountered
during her childhood.
Their drama and spirit always remained with her throughout her
career, and even
manifested themselves upon occasion on her glasses and her shoes,
which she also painted.
I was so honored to host Joan’s last art exhibit “Characters
& Curiosities” here at
Fleckenstein Gallery, and to actually have her in attendance at
our biggest reception ever.
It was the last time most people got to see Joan in public, and
she was treated regally,
as was deserved. Everyone was just so excited to speak with her
in person one more time.
As this news has spread via social media, many people have written
about good memories
they had of Joan (and her late husband George), of Joan’s
work (one wonderful person rescued
an awesome piece of hers from a rummage sale), or of being inspired
by Joan and her art.
All agree she will be greatly missed, this unique individual who
such joy to the world with her art and exuberance.
Mark Barry sums it up wonderfully as he describes Joan as
"The best, it was in her fingertips and in her soul."
