Press release from Giampietro Gallery
Fred Giampietro Gallery is pleased to present new work by artists Becky Yazdan and Christopher Joy.
Becky Yazdan lives and works in NYC. She received her MFA from the NY Studio School, studying with Bill Jensen and Graham Nickson, and her Bachelors of Fine Art from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Her work is in response to industrial grit, juxtaposing elements of nature, as it attempts to reclaim its territory. Yazdan’s work has been exhibited throughout the East Coast and New York. Becky has received many prestigious awards including the Emma Strain Award, Top 100 Artists by GLAAD, and the Hohenberg Travel Award.

Joy received his Masters of Fine Arts degree from the School of Visual Arts in New York and his Bachelors of Fine Art from the University of Connecticut. His work has been exhibited throughout New England.
