Cincinnati artist Brian Joiner had a powerful body of work behind him and an ambitious career ahead of him when he passed away this October. Among his many honors, Cincinnati Magazine named him "Best Portrait Artist" in 1999 and in 2009 he was awarded the Duncanson Artist-in-Residence at the Taft Museum of Art. Cancer put his plans on hold but it did not derail them. That's why even after his death, he has a group exhibit, 'Chocolat,' opening this Friday at Prairie Gallery.
