Joseph Fiore was born in Cleveland, Ohio.  He first came to Western North Carolina in the summer of 1946 to study at Black Mountain College on the GI Bill, where he took classes from Josef Albers, Ilya Bolotowsky, and Willem de Kooning.  Fiore remained in Black Mountain, where he taught from 1949 to 1956. From 1962 through 1970, Fiore taught at the Philadelphia College of Art. Following his time at Black Mountain College, the artist’s primary residence was New York City. Fiore regularly summered in Maine, with the rocky landscapes of the coast joining themes of mountains in his work. Whether working in drawing, watercolor, or oil, nature and abstraction regularly mingled, as did experiments with color. His paintings are part of the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Asheville Art Museum.
