Join Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery Wednesday evening, May 31 for a thoughtful conversation from Curator Juanita Hardy & artist and Paula’s loving husband Brian Dailey as they share their intentions and stories surrounding this wonderful exhibition.

TOGETHER: The Work of Paula Ballo Dailey and Brian Dailey,  focuses on the emotionally introspective work of Paula Ballo Dailey, whose untimely death to cancer in 2016 left a void for family, friends and art communities across the country. Paula’s extensive oeuvre of found object/mixed media sculpture, watercolours and selected journal entries will be on display.

Juanita Hardy is a fixture in the DC area art community, as a collector and her extensive service to the cultrural shapings of the city. She is currently a Senior Vising Fellow for Creative Placemaking at Urban Land Institute and former Executive Director of Cultural DC. This is Juanita’s 1st foray as a curator.

This event is free to the public and white wine will be served. All sale proceeds of from this exhibition have been generously donated to Smith Center for Healing and the Arts & Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery by Brian Dailey.

The Joan Hisaoka Gallery is located at 1632 U Street NW. For more information visit
