The art-loving public is cordially invited to meet the painter Liz Gribin at an informal reception at the Jonathan Frost Gallery in Rockland, on Sunday afternoon July 29. The reception from 2-4 p.m. will be an opportunity to speak with the artist and to see some of her work. Refreshments will be served.
Born in London, England, Liz Gribin fled with her family to the United States as World War II broke out. She earned a fine arts degree from Boston University, where she studied with David Aronson, and for most of her career, she lived and worked in New York, though she is presently based near Boston. Exhibiting nationally for over thirty years, she has won numerous prizes, including the Eleanor Roosevelt Award for Advancing the Arts on Long Island and the President’s Award from the National Arts Club. Her work is in many important private and corporate collections here and abroad.
“The human figure is the theme of my art. My work is classical in spirit, but handled in contemporary terms. A personal expression of my own feelings, it is a result of first-hand human experience and emotional trials…I combine abstract and figurative elements in my paintings, which allows me to free myself from the conventional,” states Gribin. Liz Gribin’s work can be seen on the Jonathan Frost Gallery website, jonathanfrostgallery.com
