The unique art of Philip Carey

An exhibition of the "Postal Art & Dream Drawings" of Philip Carey will be in the Morey Family Gallery in Art Reach through March 31.  Carey's postal art depicts the adventures of "mini-Philip", phobias, scenes from dialysis, landscapes, travel and colorful designs. These are created with #10 envelopes, ink, and Prismacolor pencil during his three times a week 3 1/2 hour kidney dialysis treatments that keep him alive. This California artist has had many fascinating careers, including as a professional singer, serving in the Navy, and for 35 years as an exhibits designer/installer at the California Museum of Science and Industry, and other venues. Carey's work has won many awards and has been exhibited in California, Chicago,  Michigan, and other areas.
