Joseph Palmerio has been a resident of Sarasota for the past 25 years. He earned his degree in painting from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia, PA. He studied art appreciation at the Barnes Foundation, sculpture at the Frudakis Academy and metal sculpture at Tyler School of Art, Temple University, all located in Pennsylvania. He taught painting in community arts centers in Pennsylvania and Colorado, and spent seven years teaching physically challenged adults in Philadelphia.
Palmerio exhibits throughout the United States. Numerous private and public collections include his works. In 1988, Acme Market Corporation commissioned him to create six large landscapes for their headquarters in Great Valley, PA. In 1989, the City of Philadelphia contracted him to create a 10’ x 30’ mural for the historic Murphy Recreation Center. In 2004, Motivation Inc, hired Palmerio to paint two 12’ x 40’ murals of the Mel Fisher Expedition of Atocha Treasure inside the Orlando International Airport.
