Humble Beauty: Hand-Colored Prints by Marcy Juran

Opening Reception Thursday, October 6 at 6:30 pm

Live Music by Hey Honeybabe

Marcy Juran’s lifelong fascination with the botanical kingdom began in her parents’ suburban Connecticut vegetable gardens. She fondly recalls her mother’s asparagus beds and a tomato garden her father planted for her to tend at age 6. The images she has hung at Greiser’s this autumn are “ripe with memories,” she says.

Juran, a Greiser’s regular, is visual artist with a practice that includes photography, encaustic painting, and handmade paper. Her focus combines personal narratives with the natural environs of her native New England.

She began her work in photography at Cranbrook Academy of Art, where she concentrated in graphic design. Throughout her design career, Juran collaborated with photographers to create award-winning work grounded in photographic storytelling.

Her own photographs have been exhibited throughout the U.S., including at the Griffin Museum of Photography, the Davis Orton Gallery, the SOHO Gallery, Sohn Fine Art, the SE Center for Photography, and the A Smith Gallery.

In Connecticut, her work has been shown at the Carriage Barn Arts Center, the Rowayton Arts Center, The Ridgefield Guild of Artists, The Westport Arts Center, The Bendheim Gallery, The Ely Center, and the Kershner gallery. Her photography has also been published in the online publications Fraction, Lenscratch, and Don’t Take Pictures. 

Juran holds an A.B. in Studio Art from Brown University. She pursued additional studies in graphic design, printmaking, and photography at the Rhode Island School of Design, Cranbrook, and the Maine Media Workshops. A native of Connecticut, Juran works from her studio in Westport, and is an exhibiting member of the New Canaan Society for the Arts, the Rowayton Arts Center, and the Ridgefield Guild of Artists.

All works in this exhibit are Hand-Colored Archival Pigment Prints, copyright 2022 Marcy Juran, and are either 13 x 19-inch prints framed to 16 x 22 inches or 6 x 9-inch prints framed to 12 x 15 inches. Prices are for framed works. Larger works are 1 of 7; smaller works are 1 of 10. 

Greiser’s will feature Juran’s “Humble Beauty” exhibit through Thanksgiving. Friends and customers are invited to a free opening reception with live musical accompaniment by Hey Honeybabe on Thursday, October 6 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm.
