Joan Thorne received early recognition for her work, participating in the last Whitney Annual of 1971, as well as the 1981 Whitney Biennial. Her paintings are exhibited internationally and included in the permanent collections of numerous national museums. She has been honored with multiple awards, including grants from The American Academy in Rome, The National Endowment for the Arts, The Pollack Krasner and The Adolf Gottlieb Foundations. The artist has published catalogues of her paintings, designed by Stinehour Editions, and was recently honored with exhibitions at The National Arts Club of New York City and Sideshow Gallery in Brooklyn, New York.

Since 1973, while myriad styles, movements and mediums have flourished briefly in turn, Joan Thorne has steadfastly developed one visual language-that of painterly surface, light, color and distilled form-which she finds best suited for her artistic project: intimating dreams, intuitions and the psychic consequences of travel... For there is something luxuriant and mysterious in Thorne's compositions. They have a classic modernist genealogy that encompasses Dove, O'Keeffe, Hartley, Avery and Tobey; yet each carries a hint of exoticism.  Richard Vine, Art In America, June 1998

Ms. Thorne’s new, exuberantly brushy, fruit- and candy-colored canvases fit right in with the permissive pluralism of painting today. Optically captivating, the work conveys a state of visceral and cosmic ecstasy.  Ken Johnson, New York Times, November 26, 2010
