“Balancing Act,” a solo exhibition of my drawings and paintings, will be on view at the North Charleston City Gallery from May 01-May 31, to coincide with the North Charleston Arts Fest.
From the Press Release:
“Joseph Kameen, winner of the 2019 North Charleston Arts Fest Poster Design Competition, will display his winning piece, Shadow Boxer, along with a new series of paintings in an exhibition titled Balancing Act. This exhibition features Joe’s recent figurative work that speaks about our human instinct to ask “why?” through a lens of humor, bright color, and exaggerated movement. Using imagery and people drawn from reality, memory, and imagination, his paintings analyze the parts of ourselves that are revealed when we ask a question we cannot fully answer. Kameen received his BFAs in Sculpture and Painting at Boston University, and his MFA in Painting from Indiana University Bloomington. His work has been featured in publications such as the Boston Voyager, Emboss Magazine, and the Pinch Literary Journal, and is in both national and international private collections. He has curated and exhibited at venues in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Indiana, South Carolina, and New York, including The Painting Center and Janet Kurnatowski Gallery. Joe has instructed courses in drawing, painting, color theory, sculpture, digital design, and 3D printing at Boston University, Butler University, Indiana University Bloomington, and Indiana University East. He currently teaches painting and drawing at the University of South Carolina Aiken. The public is invited to meet the artist at the gallery at a free reception on Wednesday, May 1, from 6-8pm, as well as during the Arts Fest Exhibition Encore on Sunday, May 5, from Noon-6:00pm. “
