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.
