Art Wall
By Joe Daley
This August the library will be displaying a collection of paintings by local artist, Joe Daley.
Joe’s interest in art began while he was living in Japan teaching English as a second language. Although his supplies were limited, he used “whatever [he] could find” and began sketching colorful Japanese pieces using ordinary colored markers. Because of his minor in Graphics Design, and the success of his earlier work, he decided to expand his artistic talents by using acrylics. His current pieces are based on a traditional Japanese design which is hundreds of years old. Daley, his wife Midori and their son, Joshua, live in Plymouth.
