Joseph Ullery
The Gathering

1963

About

A substantial and period abstract figurative artwork by San Francisco, California artist Joseph Ullery (American, 20th century). Signed and dated "Ullery '63" lower left. Signed, titled "The Gathering of the Klan," and dated 3/25/63 on verso. This painting was exhibited at the Central Valley Grape Festival and Stanislaus County Art Festival. Image, 36"H x 35"L. Ullery participated in art shows at the Stanislaus County Art Festival in Modesto and pursued his artwork in residence at the Vacaville Medical Center, part of the California prison system. The prisoners in the California Medical Facility know they cannot win all the prizes in all the art shows all the time. But their record of winning comes close to that: they "copped" two of the top prizes in this month's Stanislaus County Art Festival in Modesto--a first and a second. A fine arts program was started as therapy for men confined in the prison at Vacaville, Solano County. It has grown into something much more than that: art has become a means of income to many of the men; to some, a prospect for a happier future upon release. Encouragement in fine art "as a release for pent up emotions and frustrations that cause men to go to prison" was begun a year ago in the prison, the psychiatric center for California's Department of Correction. Of the prices received for the paintings sold, 75 percent went to the artist and 25 percent went to defray the cost of the shows. Once out of prison, Ullery taught painting to local artists and exhibited in San Francisco art Galleries.
