About

"Griders" is Craig McPherson's rainy night scene showing the view from his former studio in Washington Heights in NYC. The image is the companion piece to the iconic "Yankee Stadium At Night". It was created in 1986 in an edition of 90. It was printed by master printer, Mohammad Khalil. Craig McPherson was born in Wichita, Kansas in 1948. After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Kansas in 1970, he spent the following years curating and lecturing for the National Endowment for the Arts. He was the director of the Michigan Artrain before taking up residence in New York in 1975 to develop his career as an artist. McPherson's work has been exhibited in one-man gallery shows in New York, where he is represented by Forum Gallery, and in group shows all over the world. His body of work also includes a number of corporate and museum commissions. In 1998 he had his first museum retrospective at The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, England. The show traveled to The Hunterian Museum in Glasgow, Scotland. In 2008 McPherson was commissioned by the Frick Museum to create an exhibition reflecting the heritage of steel production in Pittsburgh as part of that city's 250th anniversary celebration. His most recent show at Forum Gallery "Steel/Stage" focused on images from heavy industry, experimental theater and theater interiors. Since the mid-90's, McPherson has been working with a broad range of imagery including landscape, natural phenomenon, near abstraction and the human figure. He has combined metaphoric elements and performers from experimental theatre. The New York Times critic Ken Johnson called his 2001 show featuring a 60-foot pastel of water, "a spectacular tour de force." He wrote, "It verges on abstraction, yet produces an enveloping cinematically lush effect." Craig McPherson's work is included in numerous museum, corporate and private collections in the U.S. and abroad. These include The Metropolitan Museum of Art; The British Museum, London; The National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; The Art Institute of Chicago; Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; Boston Museum of Fine Arts; Boston Public Library; The Carnegie Institute of Art, Pittsburgh; The Cleveland Museum; Delaware Art Museum; The Detroit Fine Arts Institute; The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, England; The Fogg Museum at Harvard; The Hunterian Museum, Glasgow; The Library of Congress; Minneapolis Institute of Art; National Gallery of Art, National Museum of American Art and The Smithsonian Institution, in Washington, D.C.; The New York Historical Society; Museum of the City of New York; The McNay Art Museum; San Francisco Museum of Fine Art; Whitney Museum of American Art; Wichita Art Museum and many other city and university collections. Corporate collections include Alliance Bernstein, American Express, Bank of America, Citicorp, Dreyfus, ExxonMobil, General Electric, JP Morgan Chase, Marsh McLennan, MBIA, Microsoft, Wrigley's Inc. and others. McPherson has won a number of art awards and honors, and has been reviewed in The New York Times, The Financial Times, Art in America, Artnews, The New York Post, The New York Observer and other publications.
