Joyce B. Flora's Cathedral Series, her most recent, consists of 3-dimensional abstract collages/assemblages constructed from a wide range of materials: paper, metals, clay, wood, found materials, paint. Inspired by religious architecture and primitive art, Flora is also influenced by her travels to distant parts of the globe, especially Africa and the Middle East, which enabled her to observe firsthand the inexhaustible richness and diversity of various cultures. Continuing to draw upon these enriching experiences and her extensive training in the performing arts‹in particular ballet and modern dance‹she developed a keen awareness and appreciation for form and line, which are vital elements in her art.

Solo exhibitions include: ETS Corporation in Princeton, New Jersey, September 2000; Edward Williams Gallery, and Fairleigh Dickinson University, in Hackensack, New Jersey, May 2002.

Flora has exhibited at prestigious galleries such as Silvermine in Connecticut, Broome St. Gallery, Cork Gallery, Lever House, Ashawagh Hall, Salmagundi Club and Pleiades Gallery in New York City, juried by Grace Glueck, Walter Zimmer, and Vivian Raynor, New York Times Critics; Jennifer Yum, Metropolitan Museum of Art; Tracey Bashkoff, Curator Guggenheim Museum; Larry Rinder, Curator Whitney Museum.

Museum exhibitions include Pound Ridge Museum, New York; Havre de Grace Museum, Maryland; juried by Ellen Keiter, Curator/Hudson River Museum and Adit Ottesen/Baltimore Museum of Art respectively; Midwest Museum of American Art, Indiana, and Saginaw Arts Museum, Michigan.

She received a $5,000 award from Bankers Trust Company in recognition of volunteer work performed in homeless shelters.

Professional associations include National Association of Women Artists, Metropolitan Artists (Board Member) and Burr Artists Association (Juried), New York Artists Equity, West Side Arts Coalition (Former Board Member), and Women’s Caucus for Art.
