During January and February the George Adams Gallery is presenting an exhibition of new smaller-scaled paintings by Andrew Lenaghan. The exhibition includes 19 cityscapes, landscapes, and interiors (with figures), all painted from life.

In his new paintings of Brooklyn, Lenaghan returned to several sites he previously depicted, notably the once empty lots and abandoned piers around North 8th Street, now East River Park, as well as the streets and yards near his home in the Midwood section of Brooklyn. In addition, Lenaghan has continued to introduce the figure and even narrative into his work. The exhibition includes several paintings featuring his wife and children in and around their house. Finally, there are four views of Santa Fe in the show, the results of a month-long stay and as is often the case, Lenaghan chose to depict some of the least likely sites, including a local cemetery and an abandoned housing complex.

This is Lenaghan’s tenth exhibition with the gallery since his debut in 1995. He is currently an adjunct professor of art at Pratt, Brooklyn College, and New York Academy of Art, and is a 2011 recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant.
