Lemont Center for the Arts

To enrich the cultural landscape of Lemont by fostering the production and appreciation of the arts.

Joan Rooney – Local Artist Feature

This month at LCA, we feature Lemont artist Joan Rooney. Her realistic representations of nature show her well-developed handling of light and color. Come on in to Lemont Center for the Arts to see Joan’s lovely paintings in person.

Joan Rooney, a 20 year resident of Lemont, started taking art lessons 10 years ago at the Visual Arts Center in Punta Gorda, Florida and has taken lessons from renowned artist Ron Sanders and Elizabeth Hutchinson, Art History teacher and owner of Red Hat Studio.

Joan first started drawing portraits of her children and grandchildren, and after a few years, switched to animals, birds, and landscapes. She holds a Bachelor Degree from Governors State University in Business and Psychology.
