On First Friday, May 3, Marc Rubin will be the featured artist at The Artists’ Gallery in Chestertown. In “Looking Around,” Marc paints still lifes that invite meaning and evoke story. He captures everyday objects at eye-level and sized in the frame as they are in the world – but he imbues them with a spirit and presence so that, emotionally, they become larger than life.
Overall, as a classical representational oil painter, Marc’s paintings exude a timeless quality. His rich use of color and finely developed eye for composition set him apart from his contemporaries. Classically trained by his mentor, Thomas Buechner, in upstate New York, Marc emerged from his art studies with a unique point of view. His masterfully painted representational oils are exhibited in galleries throughout the Northeast, including The Artists’ Gallery in Chestertown.
In addition to his work as a painter, Marc is an award-winning graphic designer and owner of Marc Rubin Associates, which offers business-aligned creative solutions to graphic communications needs. He serves on the executive board of directors for the Arnot Art Museum, and he is a member of the American Institute of Graphic Arts, the Design Management Institute and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Marc resides in Elmira, New York with his family.
The public is invited to visit The Artists’ Gallery on First Friday from 5 to 8 p.m. for a reception to meet the artist. Marc’s work will be featured throughout the month of May. The Artists’ Gallery is located at 239 High Street in Chestertown and is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. For more information about The Artists’ Gallery, visit www.theartistsgalleryctown.com or call the gallery at 410-778-2425.
