Joseph Remillard is a professor of drawing and painting at Kennesaw State University. Having taught at KSU for 20 years, Remillard’s love of teaching comes from learning
from his students and being around others who have a similar passion for art.
Atlanta, Italy and the Adirondacks are recurring locations in his paintings. He says his Adirondack paintings are of the people and places in the North Country with which he has a personal connection. Recurring themes can be found in depictions of his family’s farm located in Peru, the relatives who work the farm, and Silver Lake, located not far from Rockwell Kent’s Asgaard. Each of Joe's paintings tells a story of a time and a place. He tries to be very accurate in his representation of the person or scene. This is his way of honoring the subject, of, in a sense, elevating it to something sacred. Joe grew up in the North Country and moved to Atlanta in his mid-twenties. Joe disagrees with the author Thomas Wolfe who famously wrote, “You can’t go home again.” He goes back home with each painting he creates.
There will be a reception for the event on June 3, 2021 from 5–7 p.m.
