92-year-old, New York artist Gloria Garfinkel’s vibrant, colorful abstract work has been included in museum exhibitions and contemporary art gallery shows throughout the United States and abroad. Ms. Garfinkel draws inspiration from her extensive international travel and her keen interest in science and mathematics. Over the last seven decades, these experiences and interests have furthered her experimentation in colour relationships and juxtapositions of textures and patterns reflected in her prints, paintings, movable sculpture and handmade books.
Ms. Garfinkel has had solo exhibitions at the George Walter Vincent Smith Art Museum, Ella Sharp Museum, Anderson Center for The Arts and gallery solo shows at Paul Sharpe and Mary Ryan Galleries in New York. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at the Brooklyn Museum, Portsmouth Art & Cultural Center,
De Cordova Museum, and Brattleboro Museum among others.
Many corporate and private collections contain examples of Ms. Garfinkel’s work. Her pieces are included in the permanent collections of the New York Public Library, The Albright-Knox Museum, San Francisco Museum of Art, Haggerty Museum at Marquette University and other notable institutions.
