About the Event

Join us in the gardens of the Peter Bullough Bullough Foundation for hors d’oeuvres and drinks as we celebrate our summer residents Joseph Jablonski, Daniel Rossi, and David Kiefer. Tour the studios, visit the resident house, and learn more about our upcoming fall events as you listen to jazz and take in your surroundings. This event has been graciously sponsored in part by the Marion Park Lewis Foundation for the Arts! Due to an overwhelmingly positive turnout last year, we ask that you please RSVP! While this event is free, donations are greatly appreciated to continue to host this event each year! 

More about the artists:

Joseph M. Jablonski is the typewriting street poet of Old Town Winchester, Virginia.  Over the course of five years, he has written thousands of poems for strangers and passersby as a busking artist, using his collection of about 45 typewriters, some of which are over one hundred years old. His most recently published work is the poem “Brother Bear” in Livina Press. Other works include a chapbook of poems entitled Dropout, available from Jafansta Press, and individual pieces featured in Five2One's #thesideshow and in The Odyssey.  He has also been featured in The Winchester Star.

David Kiefer is an illustrator and storyteller. A Winchester resident since August 2022, he has been interested in art and storytelling for as long as he has known what they are.  He has a particular interest in imagination and how it influences how we see, and interact with, the world around us.  He believes that storytelling is a thread that weaves together the imagined world with the real one, and allows us to explore and experience the interaction between the two; he continues to explore this thesis in his work. He holds a BFA in Illustration from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania (2017) and an MFA in Drawing from Indiana University of Pennsylvania (2020).

Daniel Rossi is an interdisciplinary artist whose trajectory spans illustration, painting, street art, sculpture and tattoo art. Originally from Italy, Rossi began his career in the world of comic books where he established a prominent publishing house. In 2004, Daniel shifted his focus to painting and held his first US exhibit in Washington, DC with the Inter-American Development Bank. Over the next few years, Rossi's artistic evolution led him to embrace various disciplines, with a particular focus for unconventional materials, such as bamboo, cardboard and LED lights. He established the light fixture design studio in New York, Organic Light Sculptures, featured in the New York Times and worked as Instructor of Sculpture and Fabrication at 3rd Ward in Brooklyn, NY.

He soon found himself drawn to the immediacy of street art, creating murals across the globe from Guatemala City to New York City, Brazil and Italy. In 2015, he organized a street art residency that gathered world-famous artists to produce large scale murals in a rural town in Sardinia.

Recently, Rossi has collaborated on a local mural at the Discovery Museum in Winchester, VA, and completed an indoor mural at Pizzoco in Winchester, VA. Currently, Rossi brings his versatile background to tattoo art where he merges traditional techniques with contemporary elements.
