Terrone, local Glen Rock artist, will be exhibiting his landscape paintings of scenes “West of the Hudson” at the Right Angle Gallery Uptown, beginning on July 11th and continuing to August 19th. “West of the Hudson” is a tribute to the River and the towns that grew near by. They speak of the beauty of New Jersey and the Hudson River in particular. There will be an opening reception tonight from 6pm to 8 pm. Mr. Terrone will be on hand to discuss plein air painting and specifically his West of the Hudson paintings. The address of Right Angle Gallery Uptown is 1108 Washington Ave, Hoboken, NJ 07030.
Joseph D. Terrone is a professional New Jersey based artist. He holds a BFA from Brooklyn College and an MFA from Pratt Institute. His plein air paintings have been shown at various venues and have been collected throughout the country. In the past Mr. Terrone has been included in shows at the Brooklyn Museum and BACA Cultural Center in Brooklyn, NY. He has been a member of the Plein Air Painters of New Jersey, The Society of Plein Air Painters, The Blackwell Street Artists, The Plein Air Painters of New Jersey Highlands, The Lower Hudson Valley Plein Air Painters and The International Professional Association of the Arts. His work can be viewed at www.joeterrone.com.
Joseph’s painting “Last Snow” was selected among 7,000 entries, as a finalist in The Artist’s Magazine’s, 28th annual competition. He was also twice selected by Peter Trippi, editor of Fine Art Connoissuer Magazine to participate in “Paint the Town” a premier plein air event. He has also painted along side many top plein air artists from around the country at other plein air events.
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 a unique energy evident in his work today.
Originating from this abstract background coupled with his response to plein air painting, his paintings act as a vehicle to express his love of nature through color and movement. His work has been influenced by Emile Gruppe and other artists of the Cape Ann and Bucks County area.
