Fitzgerald resident’s art featured at museum


 A new art exhibit, “Sullo’s South,” is slated to open at 9 a.m. July 13 at the gallery of the Georgia Museum of Agriculture at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. New York native turned Georgia resident Joseph A. Sullo will be featured in the one-man exhibit showcasing a plethora of still life paintings.  Many of his pieces were created specifically for this exhibit.


As a student of the Pratt Institute in New York City, Sullo studied industrial design and has dedicated his life to the engineering field and to the arts. Since his retirement as chief designer for a large New York engineering company, he has expanded his art career with lectures, demonstrations and teaching. He has been creating art for the last 70 years. Although he has mastered many artistic techniques, he has devoted his energy to the art of still life painting in oils. 


After serving in the U.S. Marines during World War II, Sullo entered the design engineering field and subsequently became the chief of mechanical design for a chemical and metallurgic engineering company.  While pursuing a painting and teaching career, he has shown his work extensively in the Northeast, Florida and Georgia. 
Prior to relocating to Fitzgerald, Sullo lived in New York where he held memberships in the Dutchess County Art Association, The Garrison Art Center, Middletown Art Club, Morris County Art Association and Flushing Art League. He was also a member of the Ridgefield Guild of Artists in Connecticut and was an artist-elect in the prestigious Kent Art Association.


Sullo has enjoyed lecturing while showing his museum quality work in one-man shows at the Ormond Beach Memorial Art Gallery, Daytona Museum of Art and Daytona Beach Community College in Florida. He has also exhibited at the Thrasher House in Ashburn, The Main Street Art Gallery in Pine Bush, N.Y., and the Waldorf Astoria in New York City.
