February 8th – April 12th

The DAAP Galleries at the University of Cincinnati are pleased to invite you to the Opening Reception and Exhibition of Cincinnati-born, New York-based painter Joseph Marioni.

Marioni—a former student in UC’s architecture school—is widely known for the delicate fall of paint that traverses each of his pictures, and for their luminous color and beauty.

Highlighting his singular place in the world of international contemporary art, this exhibition situates Marioni’s work alongside his interests in art history, aesthetics, and criticism, and his commitment to painting in the twenty-first century. This is a rare chance for Cincinnati audiences to encounter this acclaimed artist’s paintings on a first-hand basis.

Artist Reception: Thursday, February 12th from 5pm–7pm
