Joyner, who is renowned around the world for his “robots and donuts” scenes, has created an irresistible body of work.  Featuring 24 new works, Someday World marks Joyner’s largest show to date at CHG. Regarding his new series, Joyner shares, “I started this series 18 months ago, at the start of the pandemic, with no particular focus except to entertain myself and pass the time. It was a time of extreme isolation for me and for a lot of others. Not socializing gave me a lot more time to work and reflect on remembered human behaviors and how I might show them in the various tin robots and other plastic toys that I have. In addition, more time than usual was put into the execution of the paintings. I am very happy how they turned out and look forward to seeing everyone, someday soon.”

CHG will be requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination as a condition of entry into the gallery, plus guest temperatures will be checked and masks will be required. 200 people at a time will be allowed into the gallery’s 12,000 square foot space, which will be monitored by CHG’s staff. After the opening, CHG returns to their regular visiting hours (Thursday through Saturday from 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm).
