Exhibition Juror
Joseph Terrone is a professional Delaware based Artist. He graduated from Pratt Institute with an MFA in painting and has earned New Jersey State Certification as an Instructor of Art. Mr. Terrone’s plein air paintings have been collected throughout the country.
After completing graduate school, Mr. Terrone worked abstractly in mixed media on paper. The success he was enjoying was met head on by a strong desire to revisit realism. He began to paint outdoors. The experience was a spiritual awakening and he decided to move his energies into landscape painting. This combination of realism and abstraction was transformed into the unique energy evident in his work. Originating from his abstract art background coupled with his response to plein air painting, his paintings act as vehicles to express his love of nature through color and movement. His work has been influenced by Emile Gruppé and other artists of the Cape Ann and Bucks County area.
There are no awards given for this exhibition.
