by Ginnie Gardiner
Originally published to accompany a solo show at Harrison Gallery in Williamstown, Massachusetts (March 2015), Recent Work features 12 of Ginnie’s recent paintings and two essays, Carter Ratcliff’s “Sunlit Stillness, Ginnie Gardiner’s Transformative Vision” and “Ginnie Gardiner: At Ease with Creation” by Wendy Smith.
Ginnie Gardiner is a mid-career New York artist who has shown in numerous solo and group exhibits for 30 years. Gardiner graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1974. From 1978 to 2005, Ginnie and her husband lived in a Chelsea loft in New York City. In 2005, they moved upstate to Catskill, New York, where they purchased, renovated and restored the Catskill Lyceum, a Federal era building located in the historic Village of Catskill. The Lyceum is where Thomas Cole gave his lectures on American Scenery in 1836. Here, Ginnie enjoys a large, light filled studio and courtyard that has inspired her recent figural and landscape collages and paintings.
