We proudly announce Madison Gallery’s first Artist in Residence Program featuring New York artist James Austin Murray. Known for his large-scale monochromatic paintings, Murray’s work titillates the viewer to look beyond the black canvas and see infinite colors and forms. Light becomes a beacon of gestural movement in each composition.
In darkness there is always light…
We invite collectors to join us for studio visits to personally meet the artist and select artworks. Murray will be creating an exclusive collection for Madison Gallery’s collectors and his upcoming September solo exhibition Light On Black.
All artist studio visits are by appointment only during gallery hours.
