Liz Gribin
artwork

b. 1934

Liz Gribin was born in London in 1934.  As a young girl her family was vacationing in Switzerland when the Nazis marched into Poland, forcing them to flee to America.  After arriving in Manhattan she began her artistic studies at the Museum of Modern Art children’s program and the Art Student League.  Liz obtained her degree from Boston University as a member of the first class to graduate with a degree in Fine Arts.

Gribin was developing as an artist in New York at the same time as many of Europe’s most prominent modern artists were fleeing their home countries and relocating in the United States.  After World War II ended the art world had abruptly shifted to New York where artists of many different nationalities and styles were suddenly working in the same city.  As a student in this rich, artistic environment, Gribin was exposed first hand to significant artworks in a variety of avant-garde styles, which is apparent in the maturity of her work.   

Gribin’s work has been exhibited internationally and shown at prestigious locations such as The National Academy of Design, the Parsons School, Pace University, The National Arts Club, The Nassau County Museum of Art, The Heckscher Museum, Guild Hall Museum and Sarah Lawrence College among many others.  The U.S. Library of Congress declared Gribin as a living legend, and she has been honored with the prestigious Eleanor Roosevelt Award for Advancing the Arts. 

Gribin’s career as an artist has thrived for almost six decades.  Her unique painting style melds the figure with abstract elements in a style that has been described as “classical modernism.” Newbury Fine Arts is proud to exclusively represent Liz Gribin in Boston for many years.  During her one women show in 2005, Newbury Fine Arts hosted Boston University Art Department’s 50th anniversary where she celebrated with other members of the first graduating class.  Today, almost in her 80’s, Liz Gribin is living in the Boston area where she continues to paint.
