Westfield Artist Gina Minichino on Exhibit at Pearl Street Gallery

(ELIZABETH, NJ) -- The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders presents an exhibit of giclée fine art prints of paintings by Gina Minichino of Westfield in the gallery space at the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs, located in the historic St. John’s Parsonage at 633 Pearl Street in Elizabeth. A selection of her work entitled “Junk Food Mania 2017” is on display at the Pearl Street Gallery through June 9. The public is invited to enjoy the exhibit during regular gallery hours, 8:30am to 4:30pm weekdays.

Westfield Artist Gina Minichino on Exhibit at Pearl Street Gallery“The talent and diversity of our county artists assure an inspiring variety of exhibits at the Pearl Street Gallery,” said Freeholder Bette Jane Kowalski, liaison to the Union County Cultural and Heritage Advisory Board. “We are delighted to display colorful fine art prints of Gina Minichino’s entertaining paintings.”

“I grew up with a pencil, pen or marker in my hand. After graduating from Westfield High School, I knew I wanted to go to art school in New York to learn to draw cartoons,” Minichino said. “At the School of Visual Arts I studied with great cartoonists like Harvey Kurzman, Will Eisner and Sam Viviano. After graduation, I took a painting class and found a new passion.”

“I loved exploring light and color and learning how it all worked,” Gina added. “I continue to paint things that fascinate me…like people…and junk food.”

In 2016, Ms. Minichino had a solo exhibit at the George Billis Gallery, NYC. In 2014 her work was in Jersey Women Artists Now: Contemporary Visions, George Segal Gallery, Montclair. She exhibited in the 25th International Juried Show at the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey in Summit, and in many other venues around throughout the USA.



 


Ms. Minichino is an accomplished realist painter. She draws on her technical ability as a painter to create miniatures of classic American food. In addition, Minichino has been drawing caricatures at events for over 20 years. These days she teaches private art classes in her Westfield studio. Her varied and interesting artwork can be seen at www.ginaminichino.com

Union County artists (whose works can be hung on a wall) interested in exhibiting in the gallery space are welcome to apply. For more information about the Pearl Street Gallery or other programs, please contact the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs, 633 Pearl Street, Elizabeth NJ 07202.
