The exhibit conversation continues: “In this grouping, one sees Robert Melee’s abstracted works that include unconventional mediums offering inspired commentary regarding the era of his youth, sitting cozily next to colorist Miriam Beerman’s figurative expressionist paintings, which show how life’s darkness can be defeated with prismatic light,” Yarosh says. “Meanwhile, Sheba Sharrow’s humanist paintings become more beautiful the more difficult the subject matter. These content-charged and masterfully painted pieces by Beerman and Sharrow illustrate why we need to re-examine female artists of the 20th century.
“In a separate dialogue, works by Iliya Mirochnik — a romantic painter who is grounded in academic traditions but remains contemporary in his storytelling — are seen in a new light when juxtaposed with those by Vjachaslav Zabelin, who is considered the father of Russian Impressionism and whose work captures the light and quiet spaces between subject and artist,” Yarosh continues. “The diversity of the artwork curated together creates an exciting cacophony of color and the result within the gallery walls becomes that of pure joy.”VIDEO RECORDING: FINE ART CONVERSATIONS/ FIVE ARTISTS | RECEPTION CONVERSATION LINK

FINE ART CONVERSATIONS/ FIVE ARTISTS Sparks Dialogue through Color James Yarosh Associates Gallery Announces the 2023 Fine Art & Design Show April 15 to Sept. 30, 2023
HOLMDEL, N.J.— Fine Art Conversations/Five Artists, the inaugural 2023 exhibition at James Yarosh Associates Gallery, presents a stimulating celebration of color and debating artistic voices.
The show, which runs April 15 through September 30, 2023, features Miriam Beerman, Robert Melee, Iliya Mirochnik, Sheba Sharrow and Vjachaslav Zabelin. The opening weekend is April 15 and 16 with hours 12-4pm both Saturday and Sunday.
“This exhibition explores the conversations of five artists from various backgrounds to discover visual synergy and common ground,” says gallerist James Yarosh. The show is grouped by artist, which allows viewers to experience the integrity of each artistic voice while still allowing for a dialogue among the artists in the room.
“This new show continues the emboldened conversations started with Miriam Beerman 1923–2022: Nothing Has Changed, last year’s featured exhibition,” says Yarosh, who served as guest curator for an exhibition of the same name at Monmouth University last fall. “Now that we are post-pandemic, I invite guests to return to the gallery to explore and engage in dialogue about the art and what the artists are communicating to us across time through the language of visuals, not words.”FIVE ART CONVERSATIONS/ FIVE ARTISTS - PRESS RELEASE
FINE ART CONVERSATIONS/ FIVE ARTISTS - SAVE THE DATE RECEPTION SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2023: EXHIBIT HOURS 12-4PM - OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | EVENING RECEPTION 4-7PM WITH ARTISTS AND VIP GUEST SPEAKERS AT 5 PM
James Yarosh Associates Gallery invites the public to a special viewing of Fine Art Conversation / Five Artists on September 23 from noon to 4 p.m., followed by a reception from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Fine Art Conversations/Five Artists, which runs through September 30, 2023, highlights works by Miriam Beerman, Robert Melee, Iliya Mirochnik, Sheba Sharrow and Vjachaslav Zabelin.
Starting at 5 p.m. the reception features a conversation with gallerist James Yarosh, who will offer insights to his gallery’s curation, and an informal Q&A with artist Robert Melee and special guests Heather Barone, Beerman’s former assistant and mentee, and Mayda Sharrow, Sheba Sharrow’s daughter.
“The gallery is in its twenty-seventh year, and this show is one of my favorites to have exhibited,” says Yarosh. “I am pleased to offer this mini salon event to continue the conversation the artists have started. This exhibition represents a diary of this curation journey, and I’m excited to share some of the insights on how the show evolved, along with conversation with the special guests who are connected to artists in the show who are no longer with us.”
This exhibition explores the conversations of five artists from various backgrounds and discovers their visual synergy and common ground. The show is grouped by artist, which allows viewers to experience the integrity of each artistic voice while still allowing for a dialogue among the artists through their works. “The beauty of art is that it can tell the stories that we are not always able to tell ourselves—and on subjects that connect us when there are no words,” Yarosh says. “The exhibit creates a visual dialogue. I’m hoping we will be able to find some words to help offer insights on the greatness of the artists represented and their works offered to collectors.”GALLERY INVITATION
WORLD OF INTERIORS MAGAZINE: THE INDEX GUIDE: LEADING GALLERIES ON CHOOSING FINE ART
Umming and ahhing over the right art for your space? Busola Evans consults with curation experts from the Interiors Index on selecting considered pieces.
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that a well-chosen artwork can have a transformative effect on a space – but selecting the right piece of fine art is an art in itself. Whether you’re drawn to contemporary pieces or rarefied antiques, there are many factors that come into play when it comes to picking the perfect showpiece, from personal taste to, of course, the depth of one’s pockets. Here, we speak to leading gallerists, all members of the Interiors Index, for their counsel on how to make the most discerning of choices.
James Yarosh is an artist, interior designer and founder of the New Jersey-based James Yarosh Associates Fine Art & Design Gallery. The gallery’s main vision is to represent ‘fine art for art’s sake’, applying an artist’s eye to curation.WOI INDEX: ARTICLE

MIRIAM BEERMAN 1923–2022 NOTHING HAS CHANGED
at Monmouth University: Conversations with guest curator and a film screening of “Miriam Beerman: Expressing the Chaos” add an interactive component to the exhibition closing day event Dec. 11, Sunday 12–4 p.m.
To book an appointment for “Fine Art Conversations at Monmouth University,” contact Yarosh at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.jamesyarosh.com. The James Yarosh Associates Fine Art & Interior Design Gallery in Holmdel is open every Saturday from 12 to 4 p.m. and by appointment. A concurrent exhibit of Miriam Beerman’s work on paper and collage art is also on display as part of the gallery’s HOLIDAY SHOW with expanded open house on Dec. 3 and 4, from 12 to 4 p.m. and Dec 10, from 12 to 4 p.m.
“Part of the joy of my work as a gallerist is sharing my discoveries about the art with others,” Yarosh says. “For example, during a recent conversation, visitors and I discussed how Miriam had the ability to turn empathy into art. As a master colorist, and someone who used all of her physicality in her creation of art, she focused on humanistic subjects as someone whose role was to bear witness of her times. In Miriam’s hands, subjects of mankind — man vs. the world — were transformed into a storytelling of the shared experiences inclusive of men, women and children. This world also included a special sensitivity to animals and a call for humans to acknowledge their responsibility to all living things and the effects our actions have upon them.“The expansion of such vantage points result in a more nuanced dialogue within the paintings,” Yarosh continues. “As primal as Miriam’s art is at times, she always finds beauty within the darkness. It’s all there for the seeing; you just have to look past the armor of Miriam’s unapologetic identity as a born artist who isn’t asking to be liked, but only to be respected. Her art is that of an intellectual, and she represents an artist in battle, one who with great discipline constantly charged forward using her mind to lead the way.” PRESS RELEASE
MIRIAM BEERMAN: 1923–2022 NOTHING HAS CHANGED OPENS FALL SEASON AT MONMOUTH UNIVERSITY - GUEST CURATOR: JAMES YAROSH
Exhibition shines a spotlight on the late Miriam Beerman, a New Jersey artist whose works are included in the permanent collections of over 60 museums worldwide and a female pioneer in the 20th-century art world.
WEST LONG BRANCH, NJ—The Monmouth University Center for the Arts announces the launch of its fall 2022 season with Miriam Beerman: 1923–2022 NOTHING HAS CHANGED.
The exhibition showcases Beerman (1923–2022) as one of the 20th-century’s most provocative artists, whose humanist expressionist works highlight her talent as a colorist. A pioneer as one of the first female artists to be given a solo exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Beerman is part of a canon of 20th-century women artists who were nearly lost to obscurity due to their gender in a male-dominated art world.
The show runs from September 6 to December 11 in the Rechnitz Hall DiMattio Gallery in the Monmouth University Center for the Arts. An exhibit closing reception is scheduled for December 11, Sunday afternoon with a 12-1pm in-exhibit-hall film screening of the 53 minute Miriam Beerman artist documentary Expressing the Chaos followed by a 1-4pm reception with informal salon conversations with guest curator James Yarosh.
The exhibition, Miriam Beerman, 1923-2022 NOTHING HAS CHANGED marks the second guest curator role at the university for Yarosh who curated Sheba Sharrow: Balancing Act in 2017. A companion show of Beerman’s works on paper and collages is simultaneously on view at James Yarosh & Associates Gallery.

MIRIAM BEERMAN – REDISCOVER - A RETROSPECTIVE REMEMBERING MIRIAM BEERMAN (1923-2022) | NOW ON VIEW AT JAMES YAROSH ASSOCIATES GALLERY THROUGH AUGUST 27, 2022
Beerman, one of the first women to have a solo show at the Brooklyn Museum, and who has had exhibitions worldwide, is the 2022 artist in spotlight at James Yarosh Associates Fine Art Gallery.
HOLMDEL, NJ—When acclaimed painter Miriam Beerman passed away in February 2022 at the age of 98, she left a six-decade legacy of humanist expressionist works that are included in the permanent collections of over 60 museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney, LACMA, Phillips Collection, National Gallery of Art and Victoria & Albert Museum.
A contemporary maker of painterly power objects, imbuing the paint with profound psychology as well as colorful beauty, Beerman was a female pioneer in the male-dominated art world of the 20th century.
Fueled by curatorial activism in the recent years, James Yarosh Associates has been hosting shows that re-examine artists who have made a substantial mark during their career in a climate where female artists of the era have been on the verge of being lost to history. The gallery launches Miriam Beerman – Rediscover, a retrospective of this prolific artist that includes many of her larger works created in the 1990s. The show is open from noon to 4.MORE

SHEBA SHARROW’S PAINTING INVOLUTE – A GALLERIST’S SHARED FINE ART CONVERSATION
With my gallery’s participation in the art fair ART ON PAPER 2021 as part of Armory Show Week in New York City, I must admit I was craving the idea of talking about art. I missed having my audio tour teachers at museums both locally and abroad during last year’s shutdown. I wanted to create conversations that stem from the art and to share how the pieces can connect us and become healing and nourishing for our souls—in the way that only art can.
I started the idea with the solo presentation of expressionist and humanist artist Sheba Sharrow, a powerful talent, the undiluted voice of an activist painter whose work I believed important and worth talking about. Her works also were ones that create the type of conversations I relish hearing about myself when I discover the secrets behind paintings.

THE ART OF MIRIAM BEERMAN NOW ON VIEW AT JAMES YAROSH ASSOCIATES FINE ART GALLERY
Beerman’s storytelling of explorations of subject such as metamorphosis, artist portraits, self-portrait, animals and the sometimes-dark journeys of life can be alternatively easy and difficult. The artist’s method itself is psychological as one who paints beautifully on the surfaces and obscures the messiness of what lies beneath.
Miriam Beerman is a hero: the darker the paintings, the bigger her spirit grew. Using her art as that voice even during a time when her male peers dominated the world of 20th-century art, Beerman rose to a critical recognition in museums and solo shows in her own right. In 1971, she made history when her exhibition Enduring Beast became one of the first one-woman shows mounted by the Brooklyn Museum.
“I first saw Miriam Beerman’s art in 1991 at an exhibition at the State Museum in Trenton, and it resonated with me as important,” Yarosh said. “As a younger artist, I was inspired by her. Today, I am equally excited to revisit her work. It is a great opportunity to review an artist’s lifetime of work, curate the pieces to introduce and then create an exhibition at a gallery level that is accessible to the public”, says Yarosh, "Her colors are pure joy."MORE

NYC ART FAIR - ART ON PAPER - BOOTH B19 - JAMES YAROSH ASSOCIATES PRESENTS SHEBA SHARROWJames Yarosh Associates Gallery will be presenting a solo display of artist Sheba Sharrow's work as part of the art fair Art On Paper 2021 in New York City. The gallery's exhibit at the pier 36 location will highlight the artists' work who is also part of the Holmdel, NJ gallery's current exhibit The Humanist Show.
Sheba Sharrow (1926 - 2006): Sharrow’s expressionism is direct, using both force and tenderness. The lyrical line of her hand becomes a visual poetry. Her art has an elegance, embracing formal balances of good to overcome and transmute trauma. Themes of mortality are explored and revisited throughout, knowing that beauty can only be seen by knowing the sadness of its polar opposite, allowing us to understand both highs and lows as forever tied into life’s journey. Her work speaks lovingly, even if with fearless candor, acknowledging that with awareness come burdens.

Yarosh, whom the couple had first come to know after buying artwork from his gallery, had become a trusted friend after they collaborated with him on the interior design of their townhouse. Re-envisioning the apartment was “pure fun,” says Yarosh of the yearlong renovation project. “The joy came from the clients’ pleasure with what we had created with their main house. They knew to trust me and now were excited to push the boundaries to see where the design might take us. “Designer–client relationships are so much better when we hold hands as we jump together in a leap of faith.” He says the collaboration has also yielded inspiration for similar space-challenged possibilities closer to home. “Swapping big-city views for ocean ones presents a promising opportunity for clients interested in primary-or second-home apartments along the Jersey Shore,” Yarosh declares.

Gallerist James Yarosh says, "When Narazyan--one of the gallery's most popular artists whose work I have been exhibiting for over 20 years-- sent me his newest collection of paintings from which to select for the gallery, I realized there were too many I liked for me to keep, and it was impossible to curate them into another gallery exhibit for 2021. Instead, I created this idea of an online pre-sale for collectors to help cherry-pick their favorites with me. I narrowed the offerings down to the following 13 pieces that are on hold exclusively for this preview and pre-sale event. The sold pieces will be shipped to me at the end of this two-month online show to be picked up in person or shipped from my gallery."

NJ SHORE TOWNHOUSE - ART COLLECTOR'S MASTER BEDROOM
The townhouse’s master bedroom overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is a representation of Yarosh’s philosophy that interior design is a hierarchy of layering home materials to create balances of beauty and quality and to curate all surfaces and collections with equal attention. The result of the layering of such elements allows the art to rise above mere decoration, standing apart as works that engage us intellectually. The result is a space that transcends superficial beauty and resonates in a deeper, more satisfying way.
“Investing in one’s home space has become even more important in realizing the benefits of what ‘home’ can mean for one’s family,” Yarosh says. “Home is our sanctuary, and one of the most hopeful things we can do for ourselves is to remind us that beauty exists if we choose to create it.”VIEW MORE

The art inspires us to champion right and condemn wrong, and when the world becomes confusing, it fortifies us to be resilient and forge on. Sharrow’s painterly storytelling, coupled with poetic text, is a cautionary tale, pleading with us that we have walked this path before and what we are experiencing now is not new to humankind.VIRTUAL EXHIBITION: SHEBA SHARROW - HISTORY REPEATS

Museum study informs my interior design work for art collectors. I employ this discipline when layering and marrying textures and surfaces on everything from the rugs on the floors to the beautiful fabrics on the furniture and drapes. Each element plays a supporting role, and each piece has its right to be beautiful on its own accord.

ARTIST IN SPOTLIGHT - SHEBA SHARROW:
Sheba Sharrow (1926 - 2006): Sharrow's personal art exemplifies an artist with eyes wide open. Her expressionist paintings abstract humanity using masterful execution, poetically engaging us with topics such as mortality, desire, vulnerability, power, warfare and spirituality.As an artist, figurative painter Sheba Sharrow bore witness to human suffering, struggle and liberation. She was a child of the Great Depression and World War II, a participant in the social justice movements of the 1960s and '70s, saw the bloody roads walked for civil rights and the damages wrought by wars.Born in Brooklyn in 1926 to Russian-Jewish immigrant parents, Sheba Sharrow grew up in Chicago and earned her BFA at the Art Institute of Chicago, studying with Boris Anisfeld and Joseph Hirsch. She continued her studies at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and earned an MFA at the Tyler School of the Arts at Temple University. She has been considered part of the "Chicago School" of imagist painters, fitting generationally into the "Monster Roster" group of artists from that city, including the most well-known of her classmates to lead the charge of image and ideas over pure abstraction, Leon Golub and Nancy Spero. A resident of Cherry Hill, New Jersey, Sharrow died in 2006.Sharrow's unique style of storytelling and her occasional use of poetic text stand her apart. Her artistic intentions were deeply intellectual. "As long as the world is going the way it is going, I cannot stop doing what I have been doing," Sharrow told The New York Times in 2002. She lamented, "We cannot seem to get it right.Through a vigorous and poetic hand, her work reflects on brutality and simultaneously pays homage to the animating power of solidarity, warning us: Remember, history's tragedies repeat.MONMOUTH UNIVERSITY

WINTER'S TALE 2019 AT JAMES YAROSH ASSOCIATES FINE ART GALLERY
Within a limited color palette of wintry whites, artists such as Yuri Kugach, Alexander Danilichev, and Nikolai Sergeyev created paintings of stillness and beauty, with depth greater than the snow itself. As part of our gallery collections to offer, James Yarosh Associates gallery presents Russian Realism paintings, based in part on the studied principles of French Impressionism--developed and honed plein-air academic painting ideals under a closed society for generations. Winter's Tale highlights one of nature's most wondrous elements, snow, as it intersects with seemingly simple settings. The painting is unmistakably beautiful, but the subject of snow is always controversial, depending from where you sit to view it. While once feared as nature's curse to ravage the earth and battle daily living against the elements, snow is also seen as the magical sign ushering in the holidays--a reason to light a fireplace and enjoy the lighthearted activities of building snowmen, pulling out skiers, and skating on frozen ponds. Today, we view snow as a tricky commute or a potential snow day, but regardless, it allows a group moment to pause and see what is in front of us as nature gives us a blank slate to begin again. Equally inspiring beyond Winter's Tales to tell are how the artist's create them--often in the snow, as plein-air paintings, with bold brushstrokes and sensitive color relationships that create exquisite realism in the most simplest terms in paint. Masterful and brilliant; if the paint were words, these works would indeed be poems.MORE
MONMOUTH UNIVERSITY GUEST SPEAKER & PANEL DISCUSSION ENGAGEMENT
In April 2018, James was selected as a featured speaker at Monmouth University’s Career Day for the Fine Art and Design Department. James enlightened students and alumni in the audience through presenting his unique, decades-long journey as an evolving artist, gallery owner, and interior designer. He also shared how his dedicated travel to the world’s top museums greatly inspired and influenced his interior design work. James reminded young artists to create a beautiful life while imagining and pursuing a career in the arts: “Art has permeated all parts of my life, grounding me and reassuring my doubts that beauty still exists in the world. My hope is that you can all allow art to guide your careers and that you always let who you are and what brought you here lead you.”MORE

NOV 30 - DEC 2: FINE ART & DESIGN SALON & OPEN HOUSE - FORTUNY/ LUIGI BEVILACQUA
An invitational salon evening and weekend event featuring a new gallery hanging of artwork and a trunk show of interior design fabrics by the famed fabric houses Fortuny and Luigi Bevilacqua. Gallery owner James Yarosh's love of quality home furnishings is what fuels his work in interior design for collectors on both a large and small scale: "Salon events allow for conversations to evolve over a night with the atmosphere of a dinner party to engage. It is exciting for me because I get to show both the art and artisan textiles and how such pairings elevate the two with a synergy that is understood only through a direct experience. The show scenario offers a glimpse of the beginning process of a new design project and allows us to explore fine art pairings together, and through this, we all get to learn and discover new ways of seeing and living with beauty." James is proud to welcome his friend and special guest for the salon evening, Ms. Wendy Dreer, the U.S. sales director for the Venice-based fabric house. Ms. Dreer will offer history and expert background on all things Fortuny and Luigi Bevilaqua . The salon evening is Friday, November 30th, 6 to 9pm and is by invitation; advanced registration is required, as space is limited. The open house with samples continues for Saturday, December 1st and Sunday, December 2nd, 12 to 4pm and is open to the public.MORE
