New Work by Nina Maguire

Nina Maguire My New York, 2009 acrylic on board 12 x 12 inches

Nina Maguire has created a unique painting which is a compilation of seven of her most familiar New York City scenes including Washington Square Park, Brooklyn’s Promenade, East Side Drive, Central Park and the Flatiron building. It is a painting of personal and professional reminiscence as she looks back at her love of the City over the years and the ways she has found pleasure portraying it in her art. Titled My New York, the painting is composed in a windows theme, with miniature variations of her paintings separated into panes. These windows into the artist’s world reveal an intimacy and emotion derived from having lived in the New York City environs all her life. The theme is complemented by Maguire’s frame choice, with the painting mounted under glass in a contemporary thin-line frame with a gold-leaf edge.

Steve McCurry Show Opens

After preparing the gallery on Wednesday, our wonderful Gallery Assistant Charlotte helped Ron hang the 33-piece show. The exhibition features newly-released images from Steve McCurry's recent travels in India, the Middle East and Asia. The large-scale works are truly breathtaking and offer a window into the world we see behind the framer's glass.

The artist will give a free lecture at UCONN Stamford next Saturday, the 25th and the artist reception will follow that night at the gallery from 6 to 8pm.

As a note, to protect the photographs from sunlight, we will be lowering the blinds in the afternoon, but we are still open and encourage you to visit the gallery and see the exhibition which runs through May 4th. We look forward to seeing you!

Peter Fiore

Peter Fiore was a finalist and Honorable Mention recipient at the Art Renewal Center's 5th Annual International Salon.

His painting, "Autumn Evening" won the Honorable Mention and "January Shade" was selected as a finalist out of the 1600 plus entries received from around the world.

Peter was also a finalist for his landscape paintings in the 2007 and the 2006 ARC Salon Competitions.

Below is a video of Peter as he paints one of his favorite fields. It's a fascinating look into his process--from preparing the canvas to painting his signature on the finished work. The video is sped up and only runs about 2 minutes.
