Master Printmaker Joyce Zavorskas has dedicated her career to documenting the constantly changing coastal environment. Her site-specific process, located primarily on Cape Cod, MA, involves direct observation of the landscape and repeated visits throughout the seasons and across many years. Over decades of documenting the same specific places, her body of work has become an abstract archive of erosion, environmental change, and the power, beauty and imminent demise of nature.
JOYCE ZAVORSKAS received a BFA at Syracuse University, M.A.T. at Bridgewater University, and an MFA in Painting and Printmaking at MassArt. She worked in her loft studio at the Fenway Studios in Boston for ten years, and received commissions for the Pfizer Corporation and Beth Israel Hospital, among others. Residencies include Vermont Studio Center, Great Spruce Head Island in Maine, Master Printmaker at Contemporary Artists Center in North Adams, Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, and Artist in Residence at Cape Cod Community College. Her artwork may be viewed at Left Bank Gallery in Wellfleet, Miller White Fine Arts in Dennis, Boston Art on Dry Dock Avenue, and the Copley Society in Boston. Collections include Pfizer, Thyssen-Bjornemisza, Fidelity Investments, Seckar & Warburg, London, Cape Cod Museum of Art, Provincetown Art Museum, Cahoon Museum of American Art, and the Wiggins Collection of Prints, Boston Public Library.
