Local Artist Celebrates 50 Years Of Creativity
MANSFIELD, PA – Paul Bozzo and his wife Marianne live in the home once occupied by Ernie Frombach and his family, a professor of Art, at the former Mansfield State College, today known as Mansfield University. Frombach was one of Paul’s teachers when he was an art student at MSC. Carrying on the tradition of creating in the home, Bozzo is well known for his textured and colorful plaster design paintings. He also credits Frombach for encouraging him to experiment and find his unique art style. Bozzo celebrated 50 years of evolution of his texture painting in the spring of 2022.
Now a retired public school art teacher after 32 years, Bozzo enjoys experimenting with melding his love of photography with his textured paintings, once again creating an original and unique art form he calls double exposures. Bozzo’s love of the outdoors often provides the beautiful photos he incorporates with his paintings using his computer.
Bozzo lets us see inside his workshop and shows us how he creates his signature art form using common joint compound, stamps, doilies, and acrylic paints. His work is available locally at Night and Day Coffee Shop in Mansfield and The Settlement House in Sylvania. He posts his work on Tioga County PA and Wellsboro Today websites and his personal Facebook page.
