“My wife, Joellen VanOuwerkerk has been training at Gleason’s Gym for the past 18 years. She switched to boxing after getting her Black Belt in karate. She spars for two hours every Saturday morning. This keeps her in great physical and mental condition to go home to her real love and job since graduating from The University of Wisconsin with an MFA Degree and a BFA Degree.
She is represented by The Woodward Gallery, located in New York City at 133 Eldridge Street. Their website is: www.woodwardgallery.net. They are open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 to 6 PM and Sunday from 12 to 5 PM.
Joellen’s most recent Opening was January 29 through March 19, 2011. The show was magnificent and very successful.
American Arts Quarterly reviewed Joellen’s January show in their Spring 2011 issue.”
