Overview

As a painter and pacesetter, Andrew Turner produced works of art in a marvelous array of themes. Over 100 images of Andrew Turner and his art are featured in the book.

Fifteen solo shows and more than thirty group shows at the gallery and across the country. More than forty reviews that spoke of his talent and vision. His jazz, church scenes, ladies, families and later his abstract work was purchased by art lovers from all walks of life. Moses Malone, Woody Allen, Prince, Maya Angelou, Pennsylvania Academy oF The Fine Arts, McDonald's, Bell Telephone and Penn State to mention a few.

James Caplan has stated, "As a young kid, Andrew would stand outside of the bars in Chester absorbing the jazz sounds created by the visiting jazz ensembles. Later in life Andrew was able to create jazz for the eye!"

Andrew Turner was not just another artist in the gallery. Creating work was *life* and it happened everyday. My memories of Andrew as a person and as an artist will be with me always. Even now when I look at his art I am sure wherever he is, Andrew Turner is still a true artist making work everyday.
