THE HUMANIST SHOW: OPENING JUNE 5th AT JAMES YAROSH ASSOCIATES - Sheba Sharrow, Jacob Landau, Miriam Beerman

The bodies of work of the three artists are being revisited as part of a curated exhibit that explores the different artistic answers each creator has to similar humanist subjects. The common denominator of the collection illustrates that our connections as humans are far greater than our differences.

NJHOME MAGAZINE FEATURE: HIGH ART - NYC APT: “Designer–client relationships are so much better when we hold hands as we jump together in a leap of faith.”

For a partner in creativity they chose James Yarosh of the Holmdel-based James Yarosh Associates Fine Art Gallery, which also offers interior design services for art collectors. 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.

FEBRUARY 2021 ARTIST IN SPOTLIGHT: VACHAGAN NARAZYAN'S HEAVEN AND EARTH PAINTINGS

Vachagan Narazyan’s paintings offer imaginings of fantastic journeys both horizontally and vertically to take place in a space between heaven and earth. The blurred horizon is like a threshold between reality and illusion, where angels descend from the heavens and people rise and float gently above the earth. Our current exhibition focuses on the artist's larger scale works as part of the gallery's newest offerings. Catalog available upon request.

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.”

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."

SHEBA SHARROW - HISTORY REPEATS - VIRTUAL/ IN GALLERY EXHIBITION - SEPTEMBER 5 - NOVEMBER 3, 2020

This gallery exhibition — in person and online as a reflection of our socially distant times — gives us pause, a chance to think about our shared humanity through the generations and to conceive, as those who went before us had, better days ahead. 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.

JAMES YAROSH, ARTIST, ART COLLECTOR, DESIGNER AND GALLERIST - BACK TO BASICS

James Yarosh, Artist, Art Collector, Designer and Gallerist, lives with his partner, Barnet Cohn, in a seaside townhouse in New Jersey, USA. During his recent stay at home, he discovered more acutely that living with art can even be great company: Being surrounded by portrait paintings and art created by the great minds of artists that tell important stories of humanity that connect us all is inspiring and have become a great source of solace.

Museum Inspiration Informs Design - Letting the Arts lead the way

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. With every layer, however, there is a singular mission: To let art be the final focus — not as just another piece of decoration but as a thoughtful expression of creativity that connects our humanity and represents great minds offering their message of beauty to everyone who is open to it.

WALL STREET INTERNATIONAL MAGAZINE ONLINE FEATURE: THE BEAUTIFUL AND ART-FOCUSED WORLD OF JAMES YAROSH:

"Yarosh like many great interior designers is part illusionist and part alchemist. The maximalists Tony Duquette and Juan Pablo Moyneux come to mind. I consider Yarosh a curated maximalist. His trained eye knows which stylish periods marry well together - such as Directoire and Art Moderne - and that they do not compete with the art being exhibited." -Noelle Newell

A LETTER FROM JAMES YAROSH - 20/20 VISION FOR THE ARTS:

I most love the act of creation in what I do, and the combined synergy of my work as a gallerist and advocate for my gallery artists, and my museum travels and study all point to the same goal of growth in what I can do. I believe my efforts have long been to extol how the benefits of living with art is transcendent. This has become the flag that I carry with all of my work.

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.

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.

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.”

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.

Join gallery artist Iliya Mirochnik, as he passes on a 250-year-old academic method, seldom taught outside of the Repin Academy and never before on camera.

Additional teaching series with Iliya Mirochnik for New Masters Academy will be added to include painting videos and is anticipated to be over 40 hours of online instruction
