John Davis

Currently on display at Artefino is the work of Tower Press resident artist John R. Davis: I usually paint places I care about and visit often. Like a farm of an old Amish friend, they are anchors that in some way define me. I have history there and they are part of me. Since I have spent most of my life in Cleveland and Chautauqua, these areas have inspired me, and many of my paintings represent this. Please look at my work and let me know what you think.

Thank you,

John R. Davis.
