Studio Artists Remember Deirdre McCullough Grunwald with Annual Exhibition
The Studio Artists at the Brush Gallery are pleased to announce their upcoming annual group show. This year's exhibit -- entitled "Reflections - Homage to a Friend”-- is being presented as a tribute to the memory of Deirdre McCullough Grunwald, a longtime studio artist and art educator who passed away unexpectedly earlier this year. Deirdre, who had been affiliated with the Brush for over three decades, was renowned for her singular and dedicated passion for teaching others and working collaboratively in addition to producing her own arresting images. Selections from her body of work will be on display along with those of her fellow artists.

To the members of the Brush Family, Deirdre Grunwald was more than just a fellow artist and friend. She was, in many respects, the backbone of the collaborative entity known as the Brush, and her passing has left us all with a palpable sense of loss. More than just a peer, Deirdre was a catalyst who was always generous with her ideas and visions, always willing and indeed eager to share her motivation and energy with others, often prodding them to do more with their art than they ever realized they could. Deirdre's input was always additive, never subtractive. Her comments and critiques were earmarked by empathy, insight, and a true generosity of spirit. She recognized that artistic concepts had elasticity, and was always eager to explore new ideas. She was, in a creative sense, truly a presence to be reckoned with. She is, and will continue to be, sorely missed by all.
