My View: DeRoy Just Doesn’t Mean Broadway Openings

It runs in the family, Art & Fame. Jamie deRoy’s mother Aaronel  deRoy Gruber (1918-2011) was a well known Pittsburgh artist who worked in many mediums. Her paintings, sculptures and photographs are are in some of the cities major institutions and parks. Recently her famous photographer son Terry Gruber hosted a posthumous New York opening of her acrylic works at 57W57 ARTS. Aaronel deRoy Gruber from the 1960’s to mid-198-’s created hundreds of acrylic sculptures using techniques that she adapted from industrial processes. Trained as an artist and living in Pittsburgh, where she grew up, Gruber was following a journeyman painter’s well-worn path from Abstract Expressionism through Pop Art to Op Art when a series of encounters diverted her into a more original line of work and she started to work in three dimensions.
The show is running until June 9th.
