Grashow Returning As SCAN Guest

James Grashow of Redding, will be the featured artist for the next meeting of Society of Creative Arts of Newtown, on Wednesday, April 11, at 7:30 pm. The meeting is open to the public free of charge and will be held at Newtown Meeting House, 31 Main Street in Newtown.

Mr Grashow is a sculptor of great renown. He uses innovative materials and subject matter. The last time Mr Grashow presented for SCAN, he talked about the fascinating exhibition he had just installed at Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, “YaZoo, A Cardboard Menagerie,” in 1998. He will bring attendees up to date on his activities through the use of slides and some of his sculptural works.

Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., Mr Grashow received both his BFA and MFA from the Pratt Institute. He was then an associate professor of art at Pratt from 1969 to 1982.

His work has been exhibited extensively in solo as well as group exhibitions here in the US and abroad. The list of awards he has earned is also quite extensive, and his work is included in the Museum of Modern Art, N.Y., the Library of Congress, and many other public and private collections.
