Art Walk



Art Walk, the third floor gallery of the Hartford Public Library, is exhibiting vibrant works by JoeSam.  He left a job as a municipal government administrator in San Francisco to become a full time mixed media artist.  JoeSam now lives in the Hartford area.  The exhibition -- Art For the Rest of Us -- continues until August 9.

It would be worth a stroll among the books for this.

I guess there are people who enjoy this kind of thing. Makes me dizzy! :)

San Francisco's loss is Hartford's gain.

Dave is correct! Colorful and vibrant images with much symbolism. I'd love to see it altho spending too much time with it could lead to sensory overload. Still love them.

What a wonderful space for an exhibition. Love the concept and would enjoy having a closer look if I were there.

Those are some very colorful pieces.

There's no way that Josam should ever be working in an office, very vibrant artwork., nicely shown here Jack.

JoeSam has a great feel for colour and fun. Working in an office must have seemed very dreary for him.

Wow! What a great exhibit. Love the bright colors.

Art exhibitions are always welcome.

As modern art goes, I kind of like the colours and textures!

VP said...

This really looks like art, love the colors and the mix of objects and even the 'portraits'... Bravo JoeSam!

Looks like one could spend a lot of time studying each of these - the colour and symbolism.

William Kendall said...

Very colourful! And quite a space for exhibiting art.

Dave beat me to it: S.F.'s loss is Hartford's gain. (And San Francisco is supposed to be such an art mecca!)

The Florence-bound friend is a former commercial fisherwoman - her tastes run to nautical, practical, and budget. No pink walls there. Think you're up to the challenge?

Great abstracts!

Bob Crowe said...

It's vibrant. SFO to Hartford is a big change. Makes me wonder how it happened.

Love his work. Looks like fabric. We had an outsider artist, Chris Clark, that did similar work but probably more primitive. We lost him too soon.

We have so much wasted talent walking around downtown Hartford. If only they had a chance.
