As an artist, I have exhibited at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and I was a member of the Richmond, Virginia Artists Association for about fifteen years.

Why I own my life collection:

The Richmond Artists Association used to exhibit at malls and other public places in the 1960’s and 70’s. One day a City of Richmond License Agent came by one of our exhibits with a note book and wrote down the names of artists who did not have a City Sales Tax License. When I got the City license, the IRS said I had to file a quarterly employee return even though I had no employees, and then the State said I had to get a business license. Then the malls got worried about liability and required us to get individual liability insurance. Rules and regulations were taking up so much of my painting time that I said to heck with it, and quit exhibiting. As a result, I have accumulated hundreds of paintings, drawings and cartoons over the years. The publication of this art in books enables me to share my art truly at a global level.

About My Life’s Collection of Work

My entire collection of original works is available for private acquisition by collectors, galleries or museums.

I have divided my works into three collections, each collection defined by the art in my three print books: An Artist’s Life, An Artist’s Vision, and An Artist’s World. These three collections (or all three as a whole) are available for private acquisition by collectors, galleries or museums.

 For additional information regarding my collections and  inquiries regarding pricing, please contact my son, author Daniel Wetta, Jr., via e-mail at cursillo86@gmail.com for a confidential response.
