"Many artists need someone to help them navigate the business side of the art world, commercial galleries, art fairs, public galleries and private commissions. When it comes to a good art coach/mentor, Joanne Poluch is just that. She is very personable, professional and has years of experience and contacts at her disposal. She helped me obtain two shows; one in a public gallery, one in a commercial venue and some contacts for commission work. I am very appreciative of the help she has offered me in the furtherance of my career as an artist."

"I have been working with Joanne for over a year now and she has provided a wealth of resources for me to explore the world of photography through classes, competitions etc. She has an eye for excellence and is connected with multiple artists in the same field. I benefited from her encouragement, and feel challenged and motivated through her feedback. I would highly recommend working with Joanne! She is a pleasure to work with."​

"The response from our first session on "Finding Your Voice as an Artist" was full of praise and positive feedback from our members on the comments and contents of Joanne's talk. She opened our eyes to the WHATS HAPPENING' in the world around us and how it impacts our journey as artists; no matter whether our goals are lofty or just down to earth and everywhere in between. It also made us more aware of ourselves and how we can choose the path that is right for us. This was the first in a series of three talks that Joanne will be presenting to our group. Thank you Joanne."

"Joanne was hired in the fall of 2121 to jury our Annual show - Windows Open 2021.. Joanne did a masterful job in choosing a show with wide ranging examples of art. She devoted much time and effort to making her choices. Her passion for art and depth of knowledge was shown in her choices of prize winners and her comments were honest, open and enlightening. Each artist felt acknowledged, respected and encouraged. Joanne was a joy to work with. We were so impressed, we invited her to be our keynote speaker at our monthly members meeting. "

"Joanne, was hired to be one of two jurors for the Headwaters Arts Annual Fall Festival Show and Sale. They worked well together and selected the best pieces from every category to give a well-rounded show including pieces from emerging artists to full time artists. Her experience and authority in the art field was pivotal to the success of the show. From the choices of the prize winners, to her comments and acknowledgements to participating artists, all contributed to an outstanding art exhibition. Thank you, Joanne, your respect and dedication to the arts is so appreciated.

She also wrote my artist statement beautifully capturing my vision in a poetic and meaningful way. I strongly recommend Joanne as a coach/mentor. She deeply cares for the artists she works with.
