The St. Johns River Rhapsody

The St. Johns River Rhapsody, was created by artist Joe Roache who belives that visual art is a way of
communicating ideas and feelings that cannot be expressed in any other way. He sees visual communication
as a way for a society or a group of people to leave their “mark” on the world stage. Joe Roache is an artist

enhanced and generated images. Joe completed his undergraduate work (B.S.) at Florida A&M University graduating in 1974 and graduate work (M.F.A.) at The University of Wisconsin, Madison graduating in 1983.
Roache has participated in many group and one-man exhibitions. His work is represented in the collections of the former Barnett Bank of Florida (Jacksonville, FL), the City of Orlando, the Bendix Corp., Xerox Inc., the
Mississippi Museum of Art, and the University of South Florida as well as many private collections. His group

Alabama A&M University, U.S National-International Art Show for the Division of Cultural Affairs of Florida, Gulf
Coast Community College, Four Arts Gallery – Florida State University,LeMoyne Art Foundation in
