The exhibition promises to be a rich and engaging experience, offering both seasoned art historians and newcomers a chance to explore the depth of Feehan’s artistic vision. His paintings speak to a wide range of emotions, from delight to introspection, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere that encourages viewers to immerse themselves in the narrative woven through each piece.

“I am often asked concerning my paintings of the source of my subjects. In reply, I should say they are portraits of us. We as travelers on new journeys and seen with a more than a touch of whimsy. We as saints and sinners, as fools, in love and out. The subjects are familiar and the journey is discovery,” remarks James Feehan

James Feehan’s artistic voice is truly one of a kind. His ability to blend historical themes with contemporary surrealism is a testament to his creativity and talent. This exhibition is a must-see for anyone who appreciates art that challenges the boundaries of imagination.

The solo exhibition by James Feehan is set to open with an exciting reception on November 9th from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. The exhibition will remain on view until November 19th, providing ample time for art enthusiasts to explore the enigmatic worlds created by this remarkable artist. The exhibition is open to the public, and all are welcome to attend.  Learn more about the artist and his artistic life in a recent feature story titled “Art, Dogs, and Life in Balance: At Home and In the Studio with Susan Roseman and James Feehan“, by Louise Feder.
