An artist's reception will be held Saturday, Feb. 11 from noon to 4 p.m. DeJoseph works in oils, acrylics and mixed media. He's also a photographer, Web and graphic designer and is a page designer at Straus News. "I started out thinking that art needed to be completely representational, to the point of realism," said DeJoseph. "Then one day I found Impressionism; more specifically Vincent Van Gogh. I was blown away and fell in love with the freedom and abstract nature of his paintings. I began to studying him and other greats for inspiration." DeJoseph is self taught, "driven by a constant need to learn and evolve." His work crosses a variety of styles.
