The Art of James McGinley

The Art of James McGinley

We will be showing the art of James McGinley in the ballroom for the Artwalk this Saturday 1-8 PM with artist reception from 4-6 PM.

JAMES McGINLEY is a realist painter of landscape, urban scenes and portraits. Born in 1937 in Jersey City, New Jersey, McGinley is considered one of the three most important 20th century artists of that state, along with his teacher John R. Grabach (1882-1984) and another of Grabach's students, the watercolorist Henry Gasser (1909-1981). James McGinley lives in Milanvile, PA and has created and incredible body of work of landscapes of Callicoon, Cochecton, Milanville and Northbranch.

The conflict between modernism and traditionalism was very strong during the late 1950's, with most young students opting for modernism. James held strongly to what he believed in...creating paintings like the masters. He was especially impressed by the works of John Singer Sargeant and Ander Zorn. In 1962 McGinley received a scholarship and traveled to Spain to study at the Real Academia de Belles Artes de San Fernando in Madrid.  The school had a staggering collection of paintings by Goya, Velasquez, Ribera, Rubens, Titian, Caravaggio and all the masters. There was also a significant collection of the artist who would be the biggest influence on James' life - the great Juaquin Sorolla, who was little known in America but was Spain's most important artist at the turn of the 20th century.

McGinley has exhibited at galleries throughout the Metropolitan area. He taught at his alma mater in Newark and was known as an effective and dynamic teacher of figure drawing, landscape painting and figure painting. To this day, McGinley still considers himself a student mastering his craft...always seeking opportunities for new insights.

The Art of Paul Owen

Also on view on the 1st floor: Paul Owen's work will be displayed throughout the 1st floor At the Western. Will be on view for next 6 months.

PAUL OWEN, Rural Life

In 1986 I began an effort to document rural life in the Catskill region of New York State.  The family farms with the life and tradition that surround it is rapidly disappearing.  I feel it is important to make a record of this tradition before it is only memory.  My efforts have taken me to small family farms, as well as country events including: county fairs, auctions and lumberjack festivals. I am particularly drawn to the farmers’ respect for the land and their animals, which are so much a part of their lives.  This is an ongoing project.
