November Program: Sharon Joines of Wharton will present her series Work: All Ye Who Labor. Sharon Joines Photography
Sharon Joines’ series Work: All Ye Who Labor is an observation of the many ways work can be defined, and of those who work. Born in Houston, Joines has resided in Wharton, Texas for over 43 years. She is primarily a self-taught photographer. Joines has been a student of Peter Brown in his Advanced Photography Workshop at Rice University for the past eleven years. Her work was profiled in spot-light: Sharon Joines by Peter Brown in the Spring 2010 issue of Houston Center for Photography’s SPOT magazine and has been exhibited during FotoFest 2010 at Stern and Bucek Architects, FotoFest 2012 at Galveston Art Center, FotoFest 2014 at Live Oak Art Center, FotoFest 2016 at the Duchesne Academy and Texas A&M University, and numerous other spaces since 2006. Joines’ work is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.
