FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Jeff Muhs | Deliverance
June 4 to July 2, 2020
It is with great pleasure that the Quogue Gallery opens for its 7th season featuring the work of Jeff Muhs. “Jeff Muhs: Deliverance” will run from June 4 to July 2, 2020. Eleven paintings will be on display in the north gallery. Muhs is largely known for his work as an abstract painter and has exhibited in galleries and museums nationwide. Muhs was born in Southampton, New York in 1966. His father, an artist and third generation hunting and fishing guide, instilled in Jeff an intimate knowledge of the local natural environment. Continually inspired by the light, water and horizon that surround him, the artist’s painting has undergone an evolution from its beginnings of literal depictions of his environment to abstraction, with a modernist touch. The artist’s use of color is at one with nature; unbridled, allowing the viewer to engage in the light and natural beauty of the East End. About his work, Muhs says, “In my paintings, I exploit and explore natural physical processes such as optics, chaos, gravity, and fluid dynamics. Through the manipulation of these processes, I create dynamic abstract compositions, using a highly gestural application of medium where often multiple paintings occupy the same canvas plane.”
While mandated non-essential business closures are in place, the Muhs exhibition will be available for viewing via the “virtual gallery” located on our website as well as Zoom showings by appointment. We also will bring artwork to clients homes for viewing by request. Finally, as we have always done, we can photoshop work into a space to help clients better understand how a work of art fits into their home environment. Clients will be able to purchase work by contacting the gallery by phone or e-mail.
