Current Exhibit


Jeremy Joseph, “The Piano Tree's Winter Suite,” oil and collage on board, 20" x 26"

Jeremy Joseph
Winter Birds Dream of Summer

December 3, 2019 through January 31, 2020

There’s a playful innocence about the sprightly birds in Easton artist Jeremy Joseph’s oil paintings. Painted in wintry shades of the palest blue-grays accented with a few bright bits of color and touches of collage, these are highly simplified scenes, but they are warmed and made enticing by the curious things going on. Birds gesture like courtiers, hop in the air around a bare stick of a tree, or carry houseplants on their backs. These paintings are all about sparking the process of creative imagination, a talent Joseph has developed not only in his own artwork but as a longtime art teacher at Easton Elementary School. There will be a reception to meet the artist on Saturday, December 14 from 3 to 5 p.m.
