Artwork RE-invested in Non-profits (AREN) – Joel Wish
Joel grew up outside of Washington, D.C. and had formal training in oil painting at the Corcoran School of Art and through private classes. He studied sculpture and ceramics at Alfred University and since then has had training in watercolor and pastel. He has focused almost exclusively on pastels and photography over the past 20 years.
Joel emphasizes movement, color, and light in his paintings and photographs. The Midwest provides a wonderful range of landscapes and waterscapes as subject matter for much of what he paints and photographs. The colored surfaces Joel paints on bring depth and vibrancy of color to artwork and allow an appreciation of what is both on and beneath the surface.
