Gallery Opening: The Pinajian Discovery: An Artist’s Life Revealed

On February 1, 2018 at 7pm, OSilas Gallery at Concordia College is pleased to welcome you to the opening reception for The Pinajian Discovery: An Artist’s Life Revealed.

At one time destined for destruction in the town dump at the direction of its creator is a body of work that has enjoyed international attention since its salvation—from articles in the New York Times and The Telegraph to a segment on Good Morning America—and will now be shown in OSilas Gallery at Concordia College. Although the artist died in obscurity and found little commercial success in his lifetime, works by Arthur Pinajian (1914-1999) are now highly valued by collectors as evidenced by sales in recent years.

OSilas Gallery is pleased to be able to showcase the work of this talented recluse, who devoted his life to his passion—art. The Pinajian Discovery: An Artist’s Life Revealed, curated by Peter Hastings Falk, will be on show from February 1 through March 17.  The opening reception will be held at 7pm on Thursday, February 1, and will be free and open to the public. For those interested in acquiring a Pinajian painting, many of the works on show will be available for purchase.
