The Betsy Jacaruso Gallery is pleased to present “His Eyes Were So Blue”, an exhibition of sensuous, lightweight installations by Mimi Czajka Graminski.

Graminski is a contemporary artist based in Red Hook, New York. Her installations are inspired by materials that evoke a sense of gravity, invisible air, and shadow play—such as, delicate fabric, translucent paper, and airy wool. She says, “I see my studio as a laboratory where I collect disparate specimens and then manipulate and transform them, sometimes contrasting them with unlikely pairing”. The exhibition  “His Eyes Were So Blue” includes works where the shadow appears more solid than the physical media, and the appearance of fragility is contrasted by inherent strength. Graminski relates these qualities to the intersection of feminism and femininity—“where strength and delicacy exist on the same place.”
We will host an opening reception, free and open to the public, on Saturday, October 15th, from 5-7pm.
The show will remain on view through the month of October.
