Becoming a Dad: Jon Petro

Exhibition Website

Sep 1 2017 - Nov 12 2017

Fatherhood is a subject rarely mined by artists, but when a lifetime of abstract painting was put on the backburner for his two sons, Jon Petro found a conceptual point of departure pregnant with possibilities.

BECOMING A DAD is a massive solo exhibition in New Bedford Art Museum/ArtWorks!’s Heritage Gallery featuring ten large-scale paintings that decode Petro’s daily interactions with his wife and sons through color, shape, and form.
