  • Debranne Cingari  (+)

    Biography : Having a strong and successful background in photography, I've stepped out of my comfort zone to explore exciting new media. While an element of photography is ever present in my work, I have brought new life to my images through assemblage. Drawing inspiration from various muses, my creations are primarily ignited by curiosity, whether from an overheard conversation, a discarded object, an experience while traveling the world, or even a dream. A life-long collector, my love of objects has led me to introduce assemblage to my photography, a marriage that has sparked an intriguing new series of work. Combining images photographed throughout my travels with my collection of mysterious artifacts, I painstakingly create my assemblages by welding, drilling, screwing, gluing, and sewing to create magnificent compositions. My pieces come to life as collections of locks, keys, tools, machine parts, records, book pages, bindings, and hundreds of other found objects take form as a city skyline against the dramatic backdrop of sky and sea. As you explore the composition you are drawn into a scene filled with surprises as it conjures visions of a city full of life, and each object invites you to wonder about its history.

  • Cleve Gray  (+)

    Biography : Cleve Gray was an American Abstract expressionist painter also associated with Color Field painting and Lyrical Abstraction. From an early age, Gray studied art. He attended two different schools, first in New York City and then Massachusetts, pursuing art at both. He went on to attend Princeton University from which he graduated with degrees in Art and Archeology. After graduating, Gray joined the army, which would influence his creativity and further his artistic growth. During this time, his focus on landscape and still life shifted dramatically toward purified forms and abstraction. While serving in Europe during World War II, he met Picasso and close followers of Marcel Duchamp. These major Avant Garde leaders in Paris informally trained Gray and undoubtedly influenced his later works. Their influence along with the strong anti-war sentiments conceived during that period continued to affect his work thought the Vietnam War (“Threnody” series) and later. Cleve Gray’s work can be found in all major museums including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Smithsonian Institute and The Brooklyn Museum. Cleve Gray passed away in 2004.

  • John Joseph Hanright  (+)

    Biography : East coast artist John Joseph Hanright brings a combination of vintage and contemporary ideas together to form paintings with a story, history and presence. John was always an artist growing up. Constantly drawing and creating with his parents urging. Residing in Laguna Beach CA after high school, John was exposed to California Contemporary Art and alternate methods of painting and assemblage. John lived in Thailand for a short while and this ultimately brought even further ideas of concept and the importance of ''Text'' within his works. Both of these terms in his creative life would prove pivotal in the development of his work. Working with wax and abstract assemblage in college led to breakthroughs within his paintings. John used mixed media to his strength and developed a more complex meaning within his work. Ever searching for vintage magazines and imagery, John uses; 40's, 50's and early 60's periodicals like ''Life'', ''Saturday Evening Post'', ''Look'', vintage travel magazines, movie posters and produce advertisements. John describes his work presently as: ''My work is thought provoking, sometimes sexy and inspired by experience and visuals lost and found. This mixing of imagery and symbols in paint and/or mixed media combine to form pieces with a twist and discovery. The art can be a combination of conceptual art, American Art, pop culture and derived from life in the 50's to present day. I present bold imagery with subtleties and simplicity to contradict and poke fun of. My engagement in my work is with thought, energy and impulsive risks.'' John has shown nationally, with select solo and group shows including; Studio E Gallery, LA Art Fair, Laguna Art Group, Melanoma Foundation, Liberty Hotel, Montserrat College of Art Permanent Collection. Johns work can be found in private collections in; Belgium, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Florida, Boston and throughout New England and the East Coast.

  • Wolf Kahn  (+)

    Biography : Wolf Kahn is one of the most important colorists working in America today. Born in Stuttgart, Germany in 1927, Wolf Kahn immigrated to the United States by way of England in 1940. In 1945 he graduated from the High School of Music and Art in New York after which he spent time in the Navy. Under the GI Bill he studied with the well-known teacher and abstract expressionist Hans Hoffman, becoming Hofmann's studio assistant. In 1950 he enrolled in the University of Chicago from which he graduated in 1951 with a BA. Having completed his baccalaureate degree in only one year, Kahn was determined to become a professional artist. He and other former Hofmann students established The Hansa, a cooperative gallery where he had his first one man show. In 1956 he joined the Grace Borgenicht Gallery where he exhibited regularly until 1995. Kahn has received a Fulbright Scholarship, a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship, and an Award in Art from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He is a member of the National Academy of Design, as well as the American Academy of Arts and Letters and has recently completed an appointment to the New York City Art Commission. The unique blend of Realism and the formal discipline of Color Field painting sets the work of Wolf Kahn apart. Kahn is an artist who embodies the synthesis of his modern abstract training with Hans Hofmann, with the palette of Matisse, Rothko's sweeping bands of color, and the atmospheric qualities of American Impressionism. It is precisely this fusion of color, spontaneity and representation that has produced such a rich and expressive body of work. Wolf Kahn regularly exhibits at galleries and museums across North America. Selected museum collections include Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, D.C.; and Los Angeles County Museum, Los Angeles, CA.

    Biography : Pawlowski was born in 1949 in Poland. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. In 1979 he was awarded his "authorization and certification" by the Ministry of Arts and Culture in Warsaw. This recognition is the ultimate achievement for Polish artists.

During this time period he was invited to exhibit in Switzerland and in England where he had a one-man show. His travels brought him to the United States for a short vacation that has turned into his newfound home. His work was particularly well received in Michigan where he had three one-man shows, two of which were in Grosse Pointe and Harbor Springs. He visited extensively in Palm Beach and Naples, Florida, Boston and Nantucket, Massachusetts, and Palm Springs, California. He painted constantly in these regions, enjoying the wide open terrain of these areas. Jan was then invited to become a member of the Artists Association of Nantucket, Massachusetts, an honor usually reserved for residents of the region. Jan Pawlowski is of the genre of plein-air painters. He records what he sees at the moment, capturing the "here and now." Jan is often quoted as saying that only Nature can bring Truth to the canvas. One learns technique in school, but one learns Truth from Nature.

  • Joel Perlman  (+)

    Biography : New York-born sculptor Joel Perlman has been creating abstract metal works throughout his 30-year career. Recognized for his immense steel structures that interweave flat geometric planes of form, Perlman has maintained an active studio and commission practice that has evolved over time. Working with the material process of steel, Perlman cuts and arranges shapes, manipulating the metal and joining lines without pre-design. Deeply influenced by Russian Constructivism, Perlman’s works are known for their relation to space, whether fifteen feet or fifteen inches. His more recent works are dynamic explorations of circular form, reminiscent of the sculptures of Alexander Rodchenko. Perlman has shown his sculptures in solo and group exhibitions since the late 1960s, including the seminal Andre Emmerich Gallery, New York, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Herbert F. Johnson Museum, Cornell, and the 1973 Whitney Museum of American Art Biennale. Perlman is the recipient of a John Simon Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, a National Endowment for the Arts grant, and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Award. His work is included in important public and private collections. He has also been commissioned for many site-specific works including Grounds for Sculpture, Hamilton, New Jersey, the Storm King Art Center, Mountainville, New York, The 1980 Winter Olympics, Lake Placid, and the Ursukushi-Ga-Hara Open Air Museum, Japan.

  • Francine Tint  (+)

    Biography : As a child, Francine Tint dreamed of moving to New York to become an artist. She began her career in the city in fashion, working as a stylist. For 17 years Francine supported her artistic dreams by styling by day and painting by night. She says of that time, “It was rough, but it worked. It worked well.” Inspiration was drawn from her time amongst the assorted styles and fashions of clothes. Francine says she, like many masters of old who studied costume, was inspired by the different folds and textures of fabric and the possibilities therein. As a female artist making her way in the time of a mostly male body of Abstract Expressionists, Francine was a stand out in breaking into the “boys club” (as she calls it). She developed a friendship with fellow artist Larry Poons, the two would help an inspire each other in years to come. Francine developed her signature style as a result of painting in a small space. She prefers to create large scale works, and so would stretch canvas across the walls and ceiling of her studio, resulting in the drips in her pieces that have become a signature component of her work. Francine leads a very disciplined lifestyle, she rises each morning to exercise and then paints all day. Francine cites painting as her outlet to letting loose, freeing herself from the discipline she brings into all other aspects of her life. Francine Tint is a New York based abstract expressionist painter. She studied painting at Pratt Institute as well as the Brooklyn Museum College. Tint’s work has been exhibited in over thirty solo shows in the United States and Europe, and is in the permanent collections of numerous museums including the Clement Greenberg collection at the Portland Art Museum and the Krannert Art Museum in Chicago. Her work is in private and corporate collections including Pepsi Co. and Mount Sinai Hospital.
