The Art Advisory, a full service entity of The Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery, will assist private collectors, corporations and healthcare facilities in the transformation of their home or office into beautiful live and work environments, through the thoughtful integration of artwork enhancing creativity, promoting tranquility, and offering inspiration.

Individual art works will not be selected; rather, The Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery will invite selected artists to be non-exclusively represented by the Advisory. Chosen Advisory artists will work with the gallery to sell existing works or to create commissioned pieces specific to future clients’ needs.

After an initial review process a preliminary selection of artists will be asked to deliver/ship one work to the gallery, upon which the final decision will be based. Consequently, all artists, except installation & new media artists, should plan to be available to deliver or ship one work for either the week of July 4 or July 11, exact dates TBD. Exceptions will be made on an individual basis.
