About The Exhibition:
To Joe Orffeo, Linda was the love of his life. As he painted he gave to Linda, and this exhibition is built on the work that was dedicated to her. Her collection reflects her motivating spirit that drove his creativity.
Joe Orffeo, a World War II Navy veteran, was a trained artist who created art with a passion. He found inspiration in the world around him, and in the working artists of the time, but he took those inspirations and made them uniquely his own.
