Unknown as an artist to the South Bend community for most of his life, Joe Casey’s (1900-1987) lovely oil and watercolor paintings of childhood memories and scenic landscapes now reside in many private collections in South Bend and Chicago. Entirely self-taught, Joe loved to paint idyllic, rural Missouri farm scenes and wooded fishing spots, as well as portraits of his family.

His work was first exhibited at the Colfax Cultural Center in 1991, and since then his work has been included in Outsider art exhibits at the South Bend Museum of Art, and the Judith Racht Gallery in Harbert, Michigan. For more info on Joe’s work, see
