American   —  SOLO EXHIBITION: "not so far away Paintings by Claire McConaughy" Oct 29 - Nov 23, 2019 Opening Reception: Friday, Nov 1, 6-8pm The Painting Center, 547 West 27th St, Suite 500, New York, NY 212-343-1060, Tuesday - Saturday 11 am - 6 pm The Painting Center is very excited for the first solo exhibition at the gallery by Claire McConaughy entitled Not So Far Away: Paintings by Claire McConaughy, October 29 to November 23, 2019. McConaughy will be present for the reception on Friday, November 1, from 6 to 8pm. Catalogue available with an essay by Barbara O’Brien, independent curator and critic, and former Executive Director of the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art. McConaughy’s exhibit features 10 paintings of trees within a landscape that evoke a mood of timelessness, while the ephemeral light captured by McConaughy infuses the paintings with a sense of observed reality to a time of day or season. Barbara O’Brien, in her catalog essay, Feeling Tone: Claire McConaughy’s Landscapes, writes “The memory of the experience—place, stance, time of day, combined with the natural phenomena of the shifting light on the surface of the water and even the temperature of the air suggested by the quality of light—is described in the paintings without being reproduced, replicated, or illustrated. McConaughy’s paintings offer the opportunity to stand where she stood, see what she saw, and to understand that the translation of her experience—into paintings of great formal command and emotional depth—becomes our own.” Claire McConaughy is a painter who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. McConaughy has had numerous solo and group exhibitions at distinguished galleries such as The Drawing Center, Art Resources Transfer, Boston Center for the Arts, Lichtunfire, Jay Grimm Gallery, TZ Art & Company, and Drawing Rooms, in addition to being on the staff of the influential art journal, New Observations. Her work is in the collections of JP Morgan and Sony Music with media coverage including Artnet and the Boston Herald. She is the recipient of fellowships and residencies at the Santa Fe Art Institute, Ucross Foundation and a Mid-Atlantic/NEA Visual Arts Fellowship finalist. McConaughy received her MFA from Columbia University, NYC, and BFA from Carnegie-Mellon University, Pittsburgh.
