FIRST FRIDAYS in Skippack Village: Artist Bobby Wolf / Gallery Opening Reception / December 5th, 2014

Artist Bobby Wolf

Bobby Wolf is a fine and an innovative abstract photographer whose vision of the world inspires viewers of his work to “never give up hope” in the face of uncertainty as he whisks you away on his adventure of light, color, and beauty.

In his senior year at Mathacton High School Bobby set a school record in the 3,200 meters race at the 2002 District 1 Class AAA championship, which to this day he hold the record. However, soon after he was diagnosed with a malignant tumor on his spine.  Bobby underwent surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments thus leading to a second operation that left him wheelchair-bound for many months.  Bobby never let those challenges in life hold him back as he surpassed doctors initial diagnosis that he would never walk again and today walks with the assistance of a cane.

Wolf credits his passion of photography to retired Methacton track and cross country coach Charlie Shank who kept in touch during Wolf’s recovery.  He would bring him to Shank’s home to teach him crafts, folk art, and other art mediums including photography, which Wolf instantly was drawn to and exhibited a special talent for.

In July of 2011, Bobby published “Journey True, Beating the Impossible Odds” a book in which he shares his battle with cancer and road to recovery.  Today, Wolf is an active member of the Chester County Art Association, has been accepted to juried art shows throughout the region, and in 2014 was one of several fine artists and fine craftsmen to attend First Friday’s and Skippack Days Arts and Crafts Festival at Green Wolf’s Village Barn Shoppes.

Opening Reception:  December 5, 2014, 5 – 10pm
