Joe Gualtieri: The Artistry of Friendship
Coming in October 2023
With a career spanning over 50 years at Norwich Free Academy, celebrated artist and Slater Museum Director, Joseph P. Gualtieri touched the hearts and creative minds of countless students. This Fall, Slater Museum is privileged to bring to you a unique twist on the traditional artist’s retrospective through a comprehensive display of Mr. Gualteri’s life’s work from his early years as a budding artist to his final active years.
This exhibition explores not only the art of Mr. Gualtieri, but also the deep friendship he shared with NFA alum Warren Canova through pieces acquired by Mr. Canova from Mr. Gualtieri himself.
We are thankful to Mr. Canova’s sons, Nick and Bob Canova, and their families, for generously lending this one-of-a-kind collection of their father’s artwork for this exhibition.
