JILL KRUTICK FINE ART OPENS IN BUSTLING MAMARONECK VILLAGE
Artist Preparing for Upcoming Solo Museum Exhibition
MAMARONECK, NEW YORK, February 14, 2018 – Artist Jill Krutick announces the opening of JILL KRUTICK FINE ART, a working art studio in downtown Mamaroneck at 425 Mount Pleasant Avenue. The studio is a newly-built 2,000 square foot gallery-style space located directly across the street from Metro North’s Mamaroneck train station.
Ms. Krutick will be showcasing both completed paintings and works in progress as she prepares for her first large-scale museum exhibition at the CORAL SPRINGS MUSEUM OF ART, Florida, opening March 2019 in the museum’s 5,000 square foot main gallery. “Opening this studio will allow me to spread my wings as a professional artist. An expansive workspace in the vibrant heart of downtown Mamaroneck will be a mecca for creative energy in the development of my paintings,” observes Jill Krutick.
Bruce Helander, a world-famous art critic, artist and a former Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at the Rhode Island School of Design, will be curating Ms. Krutick’s museum exhibition. He describes her work thusly:
“Jill Krutick’s gentle and gracious works add enchanting, soulful excitement every day for life … her latest series of alluring works [the Swirl Series] … takes a viewer on an exciting pictorial journey that is filled with twists, twirls and unexpected turns down a handsome, imaginative, engaging path that the artist produces from scratch.”
Ira Goldberg, who served from 2001 to 2017 as the Executive Director of The Art Students League, New York’s renowned 142-year old art school, said, “Artists like Jill Krutick have taken up a courageous practice; to explore the depths of visual expression as the means of communicating her sensation. We laud her pursuit. We champion her crusade.”
Annette Blaugrund, former Director of the National Academy Museum and School of Fine Arts in New York, writes of Krutick:
“Inspired by earlier female artists such as Helen Frankenthaler and Lee Krasner, she persists in finding her place in the art world. Having fought her way to leadership and success on Wall Street and in the corporate world, Krutick has found the art world more welcoming because her predecessors fought and won a place for women artists.”
