April Price Projects Gallery is pleased to announce Inviting Joy, an exhibition of collaborative works
by the sisters, Susan J. Zimmerman and Nancy Jo Mullen.  The sister duo teamed up in 2016 to work 
at Tamarind Institute in Albuquerque. Together they created a body of work which reflects their mutual 
aesthetic language and techniques.
The title Inviting Joy, stems from their shared interest and long range influence by the post minimalist 
painter Agnes Martin, and her notable writings and lectures. Their additional influences are the works of two literary 
figures, the poet Emily Dickenson, and the nature writer and activist, Terry Tempest Williams. 
Zimmerman and Mullen’s concise, yet lyrical forms come together in a series of monotypes, and various works on paper. They mutually expressed that thier collective undertaking enriched their individual abilities of achieve a rich synchrony, inviting joy.

Susan J. Zimmerman lives and works in Corrales, NM. Her mixed media works layer abstracted forms using acrylic, hand-made paper, sumi ink and collage elements. 
Nancy Jo Mullen is an artist and printmaker living and working in the Portland, Oregon area. She is an Artist Member of Print Arts Northwest, where she also served
as a board member.
