OPENING: February 10th
Alexander Foley is a graduate of Towson University, with a Bachelor of Science and a concentration in oil painting. He has avidly been working on his craft since childhood, and has had countless shows in the Baltimore area over the years, including a one-man exhibit at The Eubie Blake Museum on Charles Street, and exhibitions in D.C., Virginia, and New York City.
After Foley's studies at university, he traveled extensively, supporting his painting adventures by importing wool products, apparel, and jewelry, mainly from eastern Europe. He has painted landscapes in his travels throughout Sumatra, Java, Bali, and the Gili Islands. In 1998, he was hosted by the Indonesian Government to exhibit in the Consulate on East 68th street in New York. The exhibit was a gala event with all the regalia of a Gamelan band, and was attended by consulate staff from across NYC. The Indonesian series was also shown the following year at the Baltimore World Trade Center.
Foley has worked as a teacher’s assistant at Towson University and the Maryland Institute, as he has also done portrait work. One of his portraits resides at the offices of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church. He has done charge painting at the Hartke theater, as well as freelance work for the Baltimore Opera. Other works have included television production illustration and a run of a cartoon called Pressure Head during his university years in the Tower Light paper.
Foley became a real estate broker in the early 2000’s, and although continuing to produce many works, has exhibited very little. He is re-emerging with a selection of critically-acclaimed works at Zo Gallery, 3510 Ash Street in Hampden, with an opening on February 10 from 5-8pm.
