This exhibition will be shown online only until it is safe again to visit each other.

This exhibition is about the 'quotidian' through the eyes of artist Nancy Gruskin. As we are staying home and socially distancing, the domestic scene is a subject matter that is more relevant than ever. Artists are inspired by their environment and as a caregiver and artist, Gruskin derives inspirations from interior objects and what is happening at the dining table and around her home. Through her work, we are given private snap shots of her domestic life. However, most of what we see is relatable - like eating take-out; a child hiding under the table; and the now common hand soap at the kitchen sink. This exhibition is brought to you exclusively online with an Opening Reception via Google Meet with supporting videos such as Gallery Tour, Artist in Conversation and Artwork Feature on our website and all social media platforms.
Nancy Gruskin (b. 1968) lives and works in Concord, Massachusetts. She received a B.A. in Art History and Studio Art from Connecticut College and an M.A. and a Ph.D. in Art History from Boston University. Gruskin’s work emerges from her everyday experiences and is based on a combination of direct observation, invention, and memory. She represents the people and objects around her through an exploration of shape and color.
Gruskin has shown in numerous galleries including Galatea Fine Art in Boston, Able Baker Contemporary in Portland, Maine, Art at Kings Oaks in Pennsylvania, and the Bowery, First Street and Prince Street Galleries in New York City. She teaches painting, collage, and digital drawing at the Concord Center for the Visual Arts.
