Artist James Feehan to present solo exhibition at ArtWRKD


James Feehan, who is known for his magically surreal scenes, announced his solo exhibition, “A Journey into the Surreal, at ArtWRKD, 126 S. State St., Floor 2, Newtown.

The exhibition, running Nov. 9 to 19, will feature a collection of Feehan’s artwork that “captivates viewers with its ethereal beauty and thought-provoking narratives.” An opening reception is scheduled for 6 to 9 p.m. opening night.

Feehan's artwork transports viewers to a world that is at once familiar and mysterious, offering a unique blend of renaissance aesthetics and American folk influences. Feehan's talent lies in his ability to merge these seemingly disparate elements, leading the surreal into a captivating dance with the uncanny.

Feehan's paintings speak to a wide range of emotions, encouraging viewers to immerse themselves in the narrative woven through each piece.

“I am often asked concerning my paintings of the source of my subjects. In reply, I should say they are portraits of us. We as travelers on new journeys and seen with a more than a touch of whimsy. We as saints and sinners, as fools, in love and out. The subjects are familiar and the journey is discovery,” said Feehan.

Feehan's artistic voice is one of a kind. “His ability to blend historical themes with contemporary surrealism is a testament to his creativity and talent. This exhibition is a must-see for anyone who appreciates art that challenges the boundaries of imagination.”

The exhibition is open to the public, and all are welcome to attend.
