- Many years ago, living in Philadelphia I became interested in
modern art as there were many galleries and museums there to frequent.
I also had some formal instruction for a very short time at the
Print Club. After I retired from postal work I started to renew
my interest in painting and drawing. Having been a part time musician,
I tend to use subject matter that is related to Jazz music and
its environments, although I do not use music themes in my work
entirely. I like to work in acrylics, inks and various textures
to achieve a certain kind of personal result. I have very much
to learn and am grateful that I am able to do art at this time
in life. I find it a very positive, healthful and entertaining
Joe Welden will be at Location #2, which has changed place this
year to 197 Ridge St. in Montrose.
