In partnership with Rockaway Brewing Co., Jettison Art Group presents Jay Varney
A solo pop-up show featuring paintings by Jay Varney
Enjoy a local brew while you view paintings inspired by the NYC skyline and surrounding landscape.
“I have spent my whole life creating art, but my career as an oil painter began 9 years ago when I went on a study abroad program in Co. Kerry Ireland. The rugged landscape had characteristics that resonated with the way I handled oil paints. Currently I am living in Sunnyside, Queens and I am still exploring the characteristics of landscape which attracted me to painting in the first place. Instead of towering cliffs, I paint buildings, bridges, cranes, factories, and oil rigs. These figures are often juxtaposed by the ephemeral qualities of the sky and sea. There is something uniquely American about my work as it acknowledges both the beauty and sadness in Man’s conquering of nature.”
We hope you will join us on this special night, as we celebrate the arts.
