Grenning Gallery Spring Show

The spring show at Grenning Gallery opened last weekend and I have several paintings included among their amazing group of artists.  Here are a couple photos from the opening reception. Also, check out the article in the Sag Harbor Express about the show!  I love what they wrote about my painting "Collective Consciousness":

"The young artist Kristy Gordon, discovered by the gallery last year, will show her surreal paintings of people and water. In “Collective Consciousness,” a man in scrubs, a woman in jeans and other ordinary New Yorkers tread through green water as if it is an urban street." `Tessa Raebeck, Sag Harbor Express

Article in International Artist Magazine

I am so excited to see my work published in International Artist magazine! I am deeply grateful to Joshua Rose, the editor of the magazine, for all his support over the years and am so touched to have an 8 page spread in the current issue (April/May 2014) of International Artist.  It is incredible to have my work published alongside the work of artists I admire so much such as Daniel Maidman and Richard Schmid.  It's on the stands now so be sure to pick up your copy of the magazine to check it out!
