November 18th, 2017 to January 7th, 2018
Please join us for the Opening Reception of Grenning Gallerys latest exhibition, Gems of the Grenning Gallery, Saturday, November 18th, from 4:30-6:00 at the Grenning Gallery, 17 Washington Street, Sag Harbor. This exhibition will highlight works from a motley of contemporary artists.
Were very excited to exhibit Tonic by Alyssa Monks, one of the most prolific painters to come out of the New York Academy of Art in the last ten years. Alyssas work began to garner great attention with a series of large scale paintings of herself in the shower. Laura Grenning describes the painting as: Cindy Sherman meets Classical Painting. With Tonic, Alyssa Monks has created a thing of beauty, while pushing the boundaries on what most classical realists are doing.
Gems will also highlight works from the usual suspects: Ben Fenske, Nelson H. White, Marc Dalessio, Maryann Lucas, Stephen Bauman, and more! We’ll be selecting some of their best works from the past year, along with a variety of small works thatll serve well as holiday gifts!
The craftsman style home of this long island collector is adorned with fine realism paintings.
While he was remodeling he stated buying art. By chance, he met Laura Grenning of Grenning Gallery in Sag Harbor. Friends of his were renting a house full of contemporary art being kept there while the owners finished their new home. When they were ready, they took the art away. The renters approached Grenning to bring some paintings over for them to consider for their now empty walls. Grenning suggested they invite some friends over to see what she was bringing by. By chance I wrangled an invitation, the collector admits. I saw some wonderful paintings and really liked a painting by Kevin Sanders, Near Panzano in the Chianti but I didnt think I would be able to afford it.
