When does a process that is static – preservation – become dynamic? When artists practice historic preservation at their own homes and studios!
Joe Fig is a realist, devoted to taking first-hand experience and making art out of it. That desire led him to make realistic portraits of people he knows, especially everyday workers, including artists.
Preserving Creative Spaces: The Historic Artists’ Home and Studio Program, an exhibition organized by HAHS, has been touring since 2012, and was featured in American Fine Arts magazine.
