As diverse as his education suggests, Joe Fay is truly exploratory. Starting with Humanities Studies at Loyala University, Chicago IL, to Army Language School for Russian in Monterey, CA, to a BA in Political Science and a Master of Fine Arts from the Michigan State University, Fay’s range of interests fuels a painting style that is exciting, with unique subject matter and perspective. Selected with intention, his landscape paintings capture a journey or a moment in time, and are rendered in high technique. Colors are tonal with hues reminiscent of the twenty first century naturalist painters, such as Arthur Matthews.
Fay’s works find home in private collections worldwide, and public and Corporate collections such as Kaiser Permanente Permanent Collection, Hyatt International, Maui HI, and the Seattle Art Museum.
