Nancy Gruskin


Nancy Gruskin (b. 1968) lives and works in Concord, Massachusetts. She received a B.A. in Art History and Studio Art from Connecticut College and an M.A. and a Ph.D. in Art History from Boston University. Having taught architectural history for several years, she now devotes herself to painting full- time. Gruskin’s work emerges from her everyday experiences and is based on a combination of direct observation, photographs, invention and memory. She represents the people and objects around her through an exploration of shape and color. Gruskin has shown in numerous galleries including Galatea Fine Art in Boston, Able Baker Contemporary in Portland, Maine, Art at Kings Oaks in Pennsylvania, and the Bowery, First Street and Prince Street Galleries in New York City. She teaches painting, collage and digital drawing at the Concord Center for the Visual Arts.
