“Neil’s solo show has been in the works for over a year” says Jenny Rosenzweig Executive Director of the Roxbury Arts Group. “His pieces simultaneously offer a sense of humanity, spontaneity, spirit and calm. It only seems natural that we are reopening the gallery with this show.”

Neil received his artistic training at the Memphis Academy of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago during the 1960’s. After a brief stint teaching high school art, he realized his wide-ranging interests needed further expression, which he found in painting, music and landscape design. Neil paints the soul of his subjects in an eclectic style that is both folk inspired and impressionistic. One never knows what subject will appear on a Driscoll canvas. His alluring works are serious, abstract, flippant, and insightful.

The 2020 Roxbury Arts Group gallery series is sponsored by Roxbury Wine & Spirits. All programs offered by the Roxbury Arts Group are supported by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the NYS Legislature, the Robinson Broadhurst Foundation, the Tianaderrah Foundation, The Delaware National Bank of Delhi and by the generosity of business sponsors and individual donors like you.
