  • Art Forum Review of "Full Length" at Allston Skirt Gallery by Francine Koslow Miller

    Check out the November issue of Art Forum for a great review of "Full Length." Francine Koslow Miller writes her impression of the show, here is a small excerpt from the opening paragraph:

    "After five years of painting on guitars and two and a half years of portraying musicians, Boston's Joe Wardwell staged his own rock/art 'concert' of sorts. The artist paired his new raucous, romantic oil paintings and the elegant drawings that make up his 'Heavy History,' 2006, with a handpainted electric guitar finished in gold leaf and a vintage phonograph playing his latest vinyl album, Full Length, 2006, which showcases his rasping, guttural voice, booming bass-playing and drumming, and boisterous guitar riffing."

  • Full Length Opens! Review in the Boston Globe!

    "Full Length" Opened on September 8th, 2006! There was a large loud crowd and the music was even louder! everyone seemded very pleased, I know that I am, as well as the wonderful ladies at Allston Skirt. They did a super great job in helping me hang, arrange, and support the show. A special thanks to them and everyone else who came to see it opening night!

  • 2006 Allston Skirt show!

    In September of 2006, Allston Skirt will open their season with a solo show of my work. In this power chord of an exhibit, there will be: brand new paintings, never shown drawings, an intaglio print done with Wingate studios in Northfield, MA, a painted plugged in guitar, and if that isn't enough a full length album! Yes, indeed, I have talked the talk, now it is time to rock the Rock! I have hand-printed 100 record jackets recorded 10 songs and printed them to vinyl. This is a limited edition print with a limited edition vinyl record to match! Don't miss out!
