    Gray Matters
    November 14-December 21, 2019
    Opening Reception: November 14, 2019 6-8pm

    532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel is pleased to announce Gray Matters, an exhibition of new paintings by Brian Cirmo. This is the artist’s first exhibition with the gallery and his first New York solo exhibition. Like a novelist working in paint, Brian Cirmo invites the viewer to witness his characters’ moments of tenderness and turmoil in the exhibition Gray Matters. Reading books or looking at photographs, or sitting with eyes closed, perhaps thinking or dreaming, the people in his interiors can be miles apart emotionally, but we still sense their need to be near each other. These large-scale paintings envelop the viewer in the visceral worlds Cirmo creates, while smaller scale portraits in the exhibition, set in snowy landscapes or on moon-lit beaches, offer moments of reflection. In Gray Matters, the color gray figures in many of the works, even those ablaze with luminous color, but Cirmo also asks viewers to think about the gray areas that we navigate in our relationships or in solitude.

    Brian Cirmo (b. 1977, Utica, NY) received his MFA in Painting and Drawing from the University at Albany, and his work has been exhibited in Boston, Sonoma, New Orleans, and Washington DC. His residencies include the Elizabeth Murray Artist Residency, Granville, NY; and Salem Art Works Residency, Salem, NY. Cirmo lives and works in Albany, NY, and is Assistant Professor of Painting and Drawing at SUNY Onondaga, Syracuse, NY.

  • MADE in Granville

    MADE in Granville

    August 31 - October 13, 2018

    Artist Reception: Friday, September 28, 5-8pm

    Showcasing works by the inaugural 2018 Elizabeth Murray Artist Residency fellows: Sharon Bates, Annie Bartholomew, Rachel Baxter, Monica Bill Hughes, Brian Cirmo, Terry James Conrad, Katie Gabriel, Kyra Garrigue, Nora Griffin, Alexandra Hammond, Maddi LaVallee, Fabian Lopez-De Casas, Jack Magai, Ashley May, Mindy McDaniel, Gina Occhiogrosso, Kenny Rivero, Claire Sherwood, Michael Van Winkle - together with the late Elizabeth Murray (1940-2007).

    For more than two decades, Elizabeth Murray and her husband Bob Holman, together with their family, split their time between a TriBeCa loft and a classic farmhouse in Washington County, New York. Murray, who passed away in 2007, was a groundbreaking artist. Her many honors include a Skowhegan Medal in Painting in 1986, a MacArthur “genius” grant in 1999 and a career retrospective at MoMA in 2005. Holman, a poet and arts activist, founded the Bowery Poetry Club in 2002 and produced the PBS series The United States of Poetry.

    In 2017, the Murray-Holman family partnered with Collar Works to design a summer residency program for visual artists.

    With its 77 acres of bucolic farmland, barns, multiple bedrooms, common areas, the farm became an ideal residency location. For many years, the farm served as both a summer home for the Murray-Holmans and a creative retreat for Elizabeth, whose studio was located in the large, cathedral-like dairy barn, which now also house artist studios in the loft adjacent to Elizabeth's studio. Given the history, location and amenities, the family felt that the creative use of the property and its natural surroundings would carry on Elizabeth Murray’s legacy. Collar Works agreed.

    The exhibition "Made in Granville' showcases the works by the artists who were in residence during the inaugural year of the Elizabeth Murray Artist Residency by Collar Works, side by side with original works by Elizabeth Murray, in partnership with her family and estate.
