- Both JoAnne and myself have been extremely lucky over the years. We have many artist friends, some play the blues, others play jazz, some work in pen and ink, oil, watercolor, photography, some are illustrators, some are poets,others are authors and the list goes on…Over the years we’ve been to many gallery openings all over the world. Last night we had an opportunity to go to Phil Rachelson’s The Forge Gallery in Milford, PA. It was like walking into a high end New York City Gallery and studio. The space was amazing. To make it better there were three artist showing there – a father – Peter Fiore, a son Paul Fiore and daughter Lisa Fiore each with their own distinct style. It was obvious in the DNA that they were all accomplished and had a passion for their work. Talking about DNA, I left out the matriarch of the family Barbara Fiore is also an artist as well and works with ceramic sculpture.
- To All the Ships at Sea, if you’re anywhere near the Upper Delaware stop by and visit Phil at The Forge Gallery – you won’t be disappointed.
Both JoAnne and I had a great meeting with Jerry Beaver the other day. We talked about all things film. Jerry is a wealth of information and he had some excellent advice on a couple of projects that JoAnne and I are involved in. Creative criticism, creative critique, creative advice. The key word being creative! It also makes it very easy when you respect someone.
Jerry, come by anytime. See you at the Milford Theater soon! JoeD
