FROM THE MAINE SUNDAY TELEGRAM  AUGUST 6, 2006

 

 

 

A TWOFER IN DAMARISCOTTA

 

I note also two shows at Gallery 170 in Damariscotta. I further note the splendidness of its Federal architecture, both outside and in. The gallery is offering "Ellis Island," large color photographs by Christopher Barnes, and "NYC Waterfront," paintings and watercolors by Joseph Fiore.

 

We have seen Fiore's paintings over the years. He is a master of the urban idiom and his perceptions of the waters that surround New York are those of an intimate. He paints the waterfront, the rivers, the railyards, the underside of the West Side Highway, the gray skies and winter ice as only an intimate can. It's a pleasure to see such emotional and evocative painting.
