Born in 1925, Joseph Fiore studied and taught painting at Black Mountain College in North Carolina. He later taught at the Philadelphia College of Art, Maryland College of Art, and the National Academy of Design.
At Black Mountain College, Fiore studied with Josef Albers, Ilya Bolotowsky, Willem de Kooning, Jacob Lawrence, and Jean Varda. He belonged to the 10th Street Art Scene in the late 1950s and early 1960s, a group of galleries that showed his paintings alongside work by Alex Katz, Lois Dodd, Bernard Langlais, and others.
Fiore held solo exhibitions in New York at Staempfli Gallery (reviewed by Fairfield Porter), Schoelkopf Gallery, and Fischbach Gallery, among others. His work is in the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum, Corcoran Gallery, and the National Academy, among others.
Fiore, a full member of the National Academy of Design, received the Andrew Carnegie Prize for Painting from the Academy in 2002, and the Adolph and Clara Olbrig Prize in 2003.
River Gallery represented Fiore’s work until his death in 2008, and continues to do so by arrangement with the Falcon Foundation.
