  • Vincent Giarrano – City Life
    August ​5 – September 16

    Join us and meet the artist at an opening party on Friday, August 5, 5 – 8 pm

    The exhibit City Life, will run from Friday, August 5 to Friday, September 16. Vincent Giarrano is nationally acclaimed and has exhibited his paintings at the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., The National Portrait Gallery, London, England, and the Fort Wayne Museum of Fine Art, Contemporary Realism Biennial. In 2016, he received  a Third Place Award for his painting Tribeca at the American Museum of American Art, in Youngstown, Ohio.

    30 new oils by realist Vincent Giarrano highlight contemporary life in NYC with urban portraits of SoHo, the East Village, and Brooklyn.

    “The city has an energy, an edge, and a mood that I find fascinating.  I enjoy painting people from different walks of life; established professionals, socialites, young people just starting out. I love the gritty side of NYC, and enjoy the character of it; cast iron buildings, graffiti, messy interiors, etc. Those things speak about real life. The truth and sincerity of life is what I’m interested in painting,” says artist Vincent Giarrano.
