James Yarosh Associates Announces 2009 Fine Art Displays at Garmany

Holmdel, NJ—James Yarosh Associates Fine Art Gallery spotlights the gallery’s 2009 plans to continue fine art installations as a form of public art within the eight display windows of Garmany, Red Bank’s 40-thousand square feet luxury clothing store.  
Gallery owner James Yarosh said the upcoming 2009 displays will feature one-artist or single-themed shows, including New Jersey artist Joyce Anastasia Urbanski , and a  Bayonet Farm themed  show of plein-air pieces depicting the farm grounds for the benefit of the recently established non-profit park which maintains the public space.  
Urbanski, a painter for more than 40 years, has more than 15 single artist gallery shows to her credit and became one of James Yarosh Associates’ most successful artists soon after the gallery opened in 1996.
Since 2007, the gallery has displayed seasonal installations by a broad spectrum of artists at the upscale fashion retailer. Yarosh’s fall 2008 display in the windows of Garmany featured the work of Russian artist Edward Yashin, recognized for his extraordinary ability to depict the interplay of light and shade.  The display included more than 25 original works from the artist, who now resides in the Ukraine.  “The artist’s subjects of buildings and tree-lined passages warmed the streets with the feelings of travel and urban romance. Yashin’s painted windows showcased Garmany’s windows creating an intriguing sense of mystery and a natural desire to peer inside the store,” said Yarosh.
For spring 2008, Garmany’s windows featured artist Liz Whitney Quisgard, where Yarosh presented a four-decade retrospective of the New York based artist which chronicled a prolific career with a single vision: the dot in a metamorphosis of mediums.  Quisgard’s dot metamorphosis began in the 1970s with works on paper, later developed into 1980’s mixed media, three-dimensional, geometric “dot” tiles, and most recently grew to include six feet by nine feet painted canvases, and most recently , 36-inch square tapestries, each requiring 90 hours of the artist’s skillful and creative labor.  
No stranger to retail displays, Liz Whitney Quisgard was previously featured in the windows of Tiffany, New York City in 1984 and Bergdorf Goodman in 1991.   
Yarosh said Garmany’s windows present a unique and ideal space for displaying expansive collections. “It is such an interesting opportunity that Garmany asked if I would consider curating fine art for their windows. I think of the windows as a public space which allow for cultural installations on a scale which most galleries cannot present even in original fine art exhibits.  I’ve been afforded eight windows on Broad Street to tell the story of artists’ visions and sometimes provide homage to an artist’s entire career- that’s a responsibility I’ll gladly accept.”
What began as a gesture of courtesy to provide paintings in Garmany’s windows has developed into a very credible alternative show space for the gallery.   “I originally thought it would be fun to do, but I didn’t expect that Garmany clients and window shoppers would necessarily purchase from the windows. It’s amazing the buzz that happens each time we do a new set of windows.  
Yarosh said he is also pleased to partner with Garmany for the display of fine art in a public space due to the retailer’s impressive reputation for supporting charitable causes.   “In addition to their impeccable style and service as a clothing retailer, Garmany often facilitates many after-hours philanthropic events including cocktail parties and fundraisers.   I’m always happy to lend my time and the gallery’s services to socially-responsible local business owners.”
Pairing fine art with Garmany’s creatively-inspired mannequin displays of designer apparel and accessories creates an atmosphere not often found in retail stores, according to Yarosh.  “There is such creative energy with each of these displays. The store looks like a cocktail party in a museum and offers the perfect opportunity to get dressed up and be part of it.”
