(HOLMDEL, NJ) -- James Yarosh Associates Fine Art Gallery has announced the duo exhibition MIRIAM BEERMAN / SHEBA SHARROW – HER STORY: Revisiting Women Artists of the 20th Century. Opening April 6, with previews on March 23 and March 24, the exhibition activates a dialogue between two great female humanistic expressionists of the last century. The exhibition will run through Saturday, September 28, 2024.

Building upon recent guest curator roles with Monmouth University and a showing at Art on Paper in New York City, Yarosh continues to advocate for great women artists. HER STORY prompts an exploration of Miriam Beerman and Sheba Sharrow, both of whom bore witness to the profound human struggles of the mid-to-late 20th century.

“My passion for curatorial activism led me to explore the pairing of these two pioneering artists,” says gallerist and curator James Yarosh, “When viewed together, their works resonate viscerally. Individual in their styles, both used their artistic voices unapologetically. Together, they lift one another up, each illuminating the beauty and strength of the other.”

“Beerman’s globally resonant works give voice and witness to persecution with a fearless strength,” Yarosh continues. “Her created worlds spotlight the horrors perpetrated by men, demonstrate a special sensitivity to the natural world, and call for humans to acknowledge their responsibility to all living things. As a gifted colorist, her work connects on an almost primal level.”

“Sharrow has an ability to transmute serious subject matter with urgent markings, creating charged pieces that prove beauty lives eternal, even in darkness. Through a vigorous and poetic hand, her work reflects on brutality and simultaneously pays homage to the animating power of solidarity, warning the viewer: remember, history’s tragedies repeat.”

Miriam Beerman (1923–2022) - Born in Providence, Rhode Island, Miriam Beerman studied painting at the Rhode Island School of Design and went on to spend two years in France as Fulbright Scholar. Beerman was a pioneer, and in 1971 became one of the first women to be given a one-person show at the Brooklyn Museum. When Beerman passed away in February 2022 at 98, she left a six-decade legacy of works that are included in the permanent collections of over 60 museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Phillips Collection, The National Gallery of Art, and The Victoria and Albert Museum.

Beerman’s work is currently on view at the National Portrait Gallery in D.C. as part of a Recent Acquisitions exhibit showcasing portraits of women or made by women, and the National Gallery of Art in D.C., as part of the exhibition The Anxious Eye: German Expressionism and Its Legacy.

Sheba Sharrow (1926–2006) - Born in Brooklyn to Russian-Jewish immigrant parents and raised in Chicago, Sheba Sharrow was a child of the Great Depression and World War II, and a participant in the social justice movements of the ‘60s and ’70s. She earned her BFA at the Art Institute of Chicago, studying with Boris Anisfeld and Joseph Hirsch. She continued her studies at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and earned an MFA at the Tyler School of the Arts at Temple University. She has been considered part of the “Chicago School” of imagist painters. Her work is in the permanent collection of the Zimmerli Art Museum and many private collections.

The James Yarosh Associates Fine Art Gallery, located one hour outside of Manhattan in Holmdel, New Jersey, was established in 1996 and remains loyal to representing fine art, curating gallery collections, and thoughtfully presenting art and interior design specifications through an artist’s vision and understanding. Yarosh has received national acclaim for presenting Russian fine art collections and recognizing significant art movements in their infancy. Yarosh advocates for what greatness looks like in the arts, showcasing at his destination gallery the works of both new and established museum-recognized artists of merit in a space designed to replicate the intimacy of an artist’s home.

Gallery Hours: Open Saturday 12:00pm-4:00pm; weekday & evenings hours scheduled by appointment.
