Photos by G. Art by Joseph Arthur.
Joseph Arthur is an artist, musician and poet. If you live in New York, June 2011 is your chance to get your Joseph Arthur fix. The singer is performing a 10 night residency at The Living Room (from June 12 – 22) and his art is on display at The Gershwin Hotel for the entire month of June. Stylistically, his paintings have a Picasso-meets-Basquiat feel to them and they are almost all pretty large in size. Museum of Modern Arthur or MOMAR refers to an online exhibit Arthur had of his works from 2007-2009.
I really liked his paintings and as I read from the press release about the exhibit, the rest of the world does too! Arthur has had close to 20 exhibits worldwide of his art. I’ll be seeing Joseph Arthur perform next week at the Living Room and I am looking forward to telling him how much I enjoyed this exhibit. The art is great and the presentation is great too. As the art is displayed in a hotel, there’s art lining the lobby, the reception area as well as the lounge.
MOMAR by Joseph Arthur is on display at The Gershwin Hotel (located at 7 East 27th St. in New York) through June 30, 2011. Don’t miss it!
