The Fine Art of JoAnn Peralta
JoAnn Peralta, a former book and editorial magazine illustrator who, since 2004, crossed over into Fine-art, and is known primarily by the Western art world for her stirring depiction of American immigrants contributing to the American landscape, as well as southwestern historical figures. With her lush brushwork and luminescent light she creates a timeless flair to her paintings.
Peralta studied at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California where she was awarded a full-time scholarship. Since then, her work has been featured in publications such as: International Art Magazine, Art Business News Magazine, International Artis, Southwest Art, Western Art & Architecture, Cowboys and Indians, Fine Art Connoisseur, and Art of the West.
Peralta has been a Masters artist at the Autry Masters of the American West Exhibition and Sale held annually at the Autry Museum of the American West for nine years. She has submitted her works for review for six years now for the Prix de West and her collectors are excitedly waiting for her to show there.
Her work was the subject of a feature article written by John J. Geraghty in the December 2012 issue of Western Art Collector Magazine. She also had a feature article in the Art of the West Magazine, Jan./Feb. 2016 issue written by Vicki Stavig.
Peralta was given the honor of having her painting, Heart of the West (W.S. Hart Museum courtesy of the Natural History Museum, L.A. County), be displayed in the Longworth Building of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.
Peralta has just finished writing her first novel so is adding “author” to her list of credits. It will be made available by April 2018.
