Joe Orfeo painting at St. Bonaventure University's Quick CenterTo Linda, Love, Joe

    This is an exhibition of the work of Western New York artist Joe Orffeo (1926-2013).

    To Joe Orffeo, Linda was the love of his life. As he painted he gave to Linda, and this exhibition is built on the work that was dedicated to her. Her collection reflects her motivating spirit that drove his creativity.

    Joe Orffeo, a World War II Navy veteran, was a trained artist who created art with a passion. He found inspiration in the world around him, and in the working artists of the time, but he took those inspirations and made them uniquely his own.

    OPENING EVENT: 4 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 23
    Gallery talk by Dr. Anthony Bannon, executive director of the Burchfield Penney Art Center in Buffalo. All are welcome.

    OPEN NOW through March 30, 2020
