Internationally renowned artist-photographer Margrit Newman brought her artwork and photographs to the New York City area.

The Artivive App

Visitors were able to get full details on several pieces of Margrit Newman’s work by using the Artivive app.  Artivive enhances museumgoers’ experiences by bringing art to life through their smartphones.  If attendees downloaded the app, they are able to see Margrit Newman talk about the selected work including the 1985 acrylic “Dance of the Planets” and 1998’s acrylic and collage (rag and lichen) “Innocence.”

Compositions

Margrit Newman’s artwork is categorized by several groups. One group that caught my eye were the compositions. Ms. Newman painted the compositions series throughout the 1980s. I truly enjoyed how the artist transformed musical notes into miniature squares on the 1985’s acrylic on board “Musical Composition.” Another acrylic painting that visitors will enjoy is the 1985’s “Dance of the Planets,” which showcased two-tones circles in the planets’ rotation.

The Edges of Life

Another group of paintings that visitors would be amazed by would be are the acrylics and photos. Ms. Newman brilliantly showcases her innate ability to combine photography and painting into impeccable pieces of artwork. She instantly transported places around the country from 2004’s Chaco Cañon in New Mexico to 2016’s New York graffiti (brown).

Margrit Newman’s exhibit will run until May 18.
