Joe Mayer Tackles Abstract Art at Trippe-Hilderbrandt Gallery


“Why Your 5 Year Old Could Not Do That” will be the subject of a gallery talk by artist Joe Mayer at the opening of an exhibit of his abstract paintings at Trippe-Hilderbrandt Gallery on October 6 during First Friday Gallery Walk.
Mayer is well known to many in the area as respected artist, teacher, mentor and friend of the arts in Easton.

Joe Mayer has taught classes at the University of Maryland, West Virginia Wesleyan, and Sweet Briar College among others and retired as Chairman of the art department at Prince George’s Community College.

After retiring he taught workshops and classes in Europe, Mexico and across the United States. Joe lived in Easton where he taught many workshops and formed the “Friday Morning Artists. “Every time I pick up the brush it’s a brand-new experience,” said Joe who has been painting and teaching art since 1959.

“After forty-five years devoted to watercolor landscapes, I find my work evolved more and more towards non-objective painting. My recent exhibits reflect my attempts to create paintings that examine the similarities and differences of nature’s design versus what we human design.”

Joe’s talk is scheduled for 6 PM Friday October 6. Trippe-Hilderbrandt Gallery is located at 23 N Harrison Street in the heart of Historic Easton. For more information, contact Trippe-Hilderbrandt Gallery at 410-310-8727.
