Hosted by Matt Ross, the first event will feature contemporary artist Jay Gaskill whose work also appears in the gallery’s current exhibition “Two River” which is on display until October 27, 2012.
The recently opened One River Gallery is already filling a tremendous void in Bergen County by presenting progressive emerging artists that are making a mark on the New York and world stage. The Artist Talk Series allows art collectors, enthusiasts and students to connect in person with compelling artists and participate in a behind the scenes personal look at the unique lives of successful working artists.
Gaskill received his MFA from Hunter College and has exhibitedextensively throughout New York area. He draws on elements of pop art, design, abstract painting, and popular imagery to make paintings that "invite the viewer to re-examine their relationship to contemporary color, design, art and imagery."
