Recent Small Still Life Paintings Joe Kossow

March 9 - March 25





Joe Kossow received a Master in Fine Arts degree from The American University in Washington, DC in 1982. He was fortunate to have studied with Ben Summerford,Robert D’Arista, and Jack Boul. In 1983, he co-founded the Washington Studio School with Lee Newman, Carlton Fletcher, Jack Boul, Susan Yanero, David Holt, Jo Weiss, and Katie Murray. Joe taught at the Washington Studio School and local Washington area colleges for 8 years.

He was awarded the Elizabeth Greenshields prize in 1983. His work has been shown in the DC area, Pennsylvania, and in Paris and Nancy, France. He had a series of solo and group shows throughout the 1980s.

Joe decided that to raise a family the way he wanted to he needed to earn a more substantial income, so he left the art world in 1990. He went back to school where he received a Master in Business Administration from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1992. He worked in corporate life from then until his retirement in 2016. Joe painted and drew just enough over those years to prevent complete and total rust from setting in.

2017 marked Joe’s return to painting full time. In Joe’s words: “I paint as I did before, only with substantially more patience and maturity.”
