After completing graduate work in Fine Art and Art History at New York University and a B.A in Fine Art at Queens College, NY, Joyce Towbin Chasan worked in the field of limited edition prints and managed a Madison Avenue art gallery.

In 1981Joyce created Graphiti Aboveground Gallery and Graphiti Productions Inc., where as owner, she launched a number of well known contemporary, avant-garde artists. In the exciting art world of the early 1980’s in downtown New York, GPI created exhibitions in this gallery space and worked internationally with other galleries to show new works. (See Hip Hop FIles, photographs 1970-1984 by powerHouse Books, and Style Wars, a popular documentary film).

Since 1983, Ms. Towbin Chasan has been a successful art consultant, supplying fine art for specific sites. As a free agent, not bound to any gallery, she deals with hundreds of artists, assuring her client diversity of medium, style and price when choosing work for a particular environment.

Named curator of art exhibitions for Casa de España, the Spanish Cultural Center in NY, (now Instituto Cervantes) she also organizes shows for artists here and abroad. She created expositions for Iberia Airlines at Lincoln Center and Cornell University, and with Helmsley Spear and Mitsui Fudosan Real Estate and has lectured on aspects of avant-garde art in NY.

Constantly updating her knowledge with courses at NYU School of Fine Art and major museums, Ms. Towbin Chasan travels widely, seeking sources of both contemporary and antique artwork for her clients.

As creator and co-director of "THE SHOW", an alternative space for the arts on the Lower East Side of NY in the late 1990s, she offered space to innovative young artists.

Joyce also volunteers her time as a docent at a local NYC museum and participates as art advisor for community organizations. 

Currently she works on corporate projects and presents unique and exciting artwork at her loft showroom on Park Avenue South.
