Opening January 17, 2019: “Jon Brogie – Studies from Rome”
Eleventh Street Arts is pleased to announce a new exhibition, “Jon Brogie – Studies from Rome,” showcasing work from 2017 Alma Schapiro Prize winner Jon Brogie created during his three-month stay at the American Academy in Rome. The exhibition features over 30 drawings and paintings made on location from a selection of Rome’s most iconic masterpieces.
Jon Brogie was born in southern California in 1989 and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. He earned his undergraduate degree in Fine Art from Arizona State University, where he graduated with honors in 2011. The following year he moved to New York City to study drawing and painting under Jacob Collins at the Grand Central Atelier. He graduated in 2016 and is currently a resident artist at GCA in Long Island City, New York. In 2017 Jon was awarded the Alma Schapiro Prize, a biannual affiliated fellowship at the American Academy in Rome. Jon’s work is exhibited at Eleventh Street Arts in New York and is in private collections across the country.
The Alma Schapiro Prize is awarded to advance the career of an artist recipient and to foster the continuity of knowledge of the classical tradition as a vital aspect of contemporary culture around the globe. The centerpiece of the prize is a three-month affiliated fellowship at the American Academy in Rome, the premier American overseas center for independent study and research in the fine arts and humanities.
“Jon Brogie – Studies from Rome” is on view January 17 through February 22, 2019, at Eleventh Street Arts (Long Island City, NY).
