The Art of Brian Fox will showcase nearly 30 new paintings as well as some of the artist’s most popular legacy artwork of sports and celebrity legends. This special hometown exhibit is designed to appeal to a wide variety of interests. Sports fanatics will see how Fox captures the emotion and intensity of New England Patriots’ Tom Brady; Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps; ‘Miracle on Ice’, often referred to as the greatest sports moment of the century featuring Jim Craig, Olympic gold medalist and goalie for the 1980 USA hockey team; and the famous bout of legendary boxer Micky Ward, subject of the Academy Award winning movie ‘The Fighter’, versus Atturo Gatti. History buffs have the opportunity to pay homage to World War II Hero Major Richard D. Winters and music aficionados will feel the vibes of Jim Morrison, Gene Simmons and Keith Richards, to name a few. ‘Each day for the past 20 years, I paint for clients around the country with a window view of Fall River, Mount Hope Bay and Battleship Cove,’ said Fox. ‘I am fortunate enough that my career as an artist specializing in painting the world’s greatest legends has granted me the opportunity to partner with athletes and celebrities to raise money for their charitable organizations and showcase my work in New York and Los Angeles galleries. I am most excited about this opportunity to share my latest artwork with family and friends in my local community.’ About Brian Fox Brian Fox specializes in painting the world’s greatest legends.
