Joan Strauss Carl was a Los Angeles artist, teacher, and humanitarian activist. She was a past president of the Los Angeles Art Association and has left a formidable body of her work and commissions in private collections, museums and houses of worship. She was a prolific sculptor and painter.

After studying art in Cleveland and at the Art Institute of Chicago, she travelled West. Her decision had proved smart as she quickly had six one-man shows and was consistently accepted in very important invitational, juried exhibitions from San Francisco to San Diego.

A quote from her exhibition: Joan Carl – One-Man Sculpture Show. “My work is my way of life. It is a constant search and examination and questioning of ideas as well as form and substance, and yet each new creation is a re-affirmation of respect and love of humanity and life.”

Joan was represented by Paideia Gallery in Los Angeles and resided in Sherman Oaks, California, for many years. As a sculptor, she worked in many mediums, including bronze, terracotta, stone, and wood.
