St. Anthony Park artist to exhibit new work at Minneapolis gallery
Form+Content Gallery of Minneapolis will host an exhibition of new paintings by St. Anthony Park artist Joyce Lyons Aug. 21-Sept. 20.
The show, Two Gardens, will show works inspired by distinctly different gardens, one a cycle of ancient Roman frescoes known as Livia’s Garden Room; the other, the artist’s garden in St. Anthony Park. A public reception will be held Saturday, Aug. 23, 6-9 p.m. at the gallery, which is located in the Whitney Square Building, 210 N. Second St., Suite 104. Gallery hours are Thursday to Saturday noon to 6 p.m. and by appointment.

She exhibits locally at Groveland and Form+Content galleries. An associate professor in the Department of Art at the University of Minnesota, Lyon has lived and maintained a studio on Dudley Avenue in St. Anthony Park since 1998.
