Joe Carney is 81. He has a tremor in both hands, his vision is severely impaired and, until a year ago, he had never made a piece of art. Joe is also the father of PATCH NYC co-founder Don Carney who convinced his father to make art as a past time. Joe works with oil pastels and colored markers on large sheets of paper. The tremors cause his hands to shake so Joe wears a rubber glove to help with gripping the markers and pastels.

JOSEPH CARNEY First Works on Paper will be in the PATCH NYC Gallery from May 17 to June 4th.
