Joe Reilly is a retired teacher who lives and works in Stone Ridge, NY. Mr. Reilly has been drawing and painting since childhood. Largely self-taught, he works entirely from direct observation, these days using acrylics as his main medium. He has been exhibiting and selling paintings since the early 1990s. He has exhibited his work in many galleries, libraries, and other venues in New York and New Jersey.
In 1998 his longtime interest in learning hand bookbinding led him to take his first bookbinding class, which exposed him to the world of artist’s books. He was hooked, and has been making, exhibiting, and selling his handmade books ever since.
This show, Books, Etc, brings together his love of painting and books.
