Vincent Giarrano — City Life
Opening Reception at the Good News Restaurant and Bar
694 Main Street South, Woodbury CT 06798
July 3 to September 23
Reception with artist July 7, 2019 from 3-5pm
Vincent Giarrano captures what others might consider everyday events but treats them with such honesty and sincerity that they are transformed into timeless moments. Working in the realist tradition, he explores the beauty of contemporary urban life. Whether on the streets of New York City or in their apartments, his subjects are depicted in rare quiet moments of introspection. With a style reminiscent of Edward Hopper and John Singer Sargent, he captures his subjects’ moods and personalities.
Giarrano’s work has been shown in group and solo shows across the country as well as internationally. It has also been included in museum exhibitions such as The National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC and The National Portrait Gallery in London. His work has appeared on the cover of The Artist’s Magazine, Southwest Art Magazine and he is regularly featured in American Art Collector and other art publications.
The artist began his training at The State University of New York at Buffalo, where he pursued a Bachelor of Fine Arts. He went on to earn a Master of Fine Arts from Syracuse University before moving to New York City to begin a career in illustration. In 2005, Giarrano returned to the fine arts with a renewed interest in realism, both in style and subject.
