Artist Spotlight

Joe Cibere

Meet this month’s featured Artist-in-Residence, Joe Cibere! Visit Joe in Studio R5 during the next Open Studios.

“The challenge is to know when to stop and let the medium take over. That’s why the most successful paintings seem almost effortless,” Joe asserts. “I always look forward to interacting with art patrons and other artists to give feedback about the creative process & affirm that visual expression is one of lifes greatest joys.

Joe Cibere is signature member of the National Watercolor Society and his painting style demonstrates his love of nature and wilderness. His”abstract realism” paintings integrate strong design and balance with a sense of illusion and have appeared in “Watercolor Magazine” and in the International Artists book “The Watercolor Sky and Cloud Techniques of 23 International Artists”. His work is also part of both corporate and private collections. His studio is at Studio Channel Islands, Room R5 in Old Town Camarillo, CA.
