The PATCH NYC Gallery is pleased to present Elizabeth Grubaugh & Charlie Horey New Work from June 6th to July 2nd with an opening reception Sunday, June 7th from 4-7. Both artists will be showing colorful works on paper ranging in style from still life to abstract floral.
Elizabeth Grubaugh creates her work in a studio just north of New York City. Known for her exceptional eye for color, Elizabeth layers her drawn abstract, floral and animal imagery in these new works. Working primarily with screen and giclee printing, Elizabeth creates compositions that strike a fluid balance between shape and color often finishing a piece with gold leaf detailing. Elizabeth attributes much of her aesthetic to the two and half years she lived in Japan teaching and designing. She has a BFA from Parsons School of Design and an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Elizabeth has designed prints for Emilio Pucci in Florence and her work has been incorporated into packaging designs from bedding to beauty products. This is Elizabeth’s second showing at PATCH NYC.
In a small studio in Boston Charlie Horey assembles carefully composed vignettes from which he creates his intricate works on paper. Wind up toys, plastic figurines and rubber ducks are rendered in watercolor and colored pencil in narrative compositions rich with stories to tell. Charlie earned a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and did postgraduate work at MassArt. His art was included in the 2012 show “Into the Garden” at PATCH NYC.
