Join us for an evening presentation/talk by Max Ginsburg as he is surrounded by paintings from his ArtRage exhibition, The Realities of Our Times. His esteemed career as an illustrator and painter of Social Realism has explored the human condition and life’s ironies and social injustices. Issues of war and peace, racism and the inhumanity of man have been a major focus in his art.
Maureen Bloomfield, editor and chief of Artist’s magazine writes, “Ginsburg’s fidelity to the truth will prompt us to face what we would rather not face and feel emotions we’d rather not feel…”
The son of a painter, Ginsburg studied art at New York City’s famed High School of Music and Art and majored in Painting at Syracuse University. He earned his living as a commercial artist from 1955 to 1960, and then acquired a full-time teaching job at New York City’s High School of Art and Design from 1960 until 1981. Ginsburg worked as an illustrator from 1980 until 2004, achieving particular success painting covers for novels. He now concentrates his full attention on painting what some refuse to see.
