"Summertime Respite," an exhibit by award-winning New York artist Eileen Serwer, will be featured at the Geary Gallery in Darien throughout August.
A resident of New York City and the East End of Long Island, Serwer is known for her pastel work, including water and street scenes and panoramas.
Serwer received a bachelor's degree from Hunter College in New York and attended classes at the Art Students League and the Pastel Society of America, where she is a signature member and taught a landscape workshop in April 2012. She is also a signature member of the Pastel Society of the West Coast, and a juried member of the Degas Pastel Society and the National Association of Women Artists.
Serwer has been exhibited in many juried, solo and group shows, including the Salmagundi Club in New York City, the International Association of Pastel Societies, the United Pastelists of America, the Pastel Society of the West Coast, the Degas Pastel Society, the Jemison-Carnegie Heritage Hall Museum in Alabama, the Connecticut Pastel Society, the Pastel Painters of Cape Cod, the Elaine Benson Gallery, the Blue Hill Cultural Center, the Works Gallery and the National Association of Women Artists Gallery.
She has received many awards, including several from the Pen and Brush and Manhattan Arts International. In April 2001, Serwer had an article published in The Artist's Magazine, titled "Layers of Suggestion," wherein she described how she creates pastel paintings. Two of her paintings were selected for the covers of Dan's Papers and The Montauk Pioneer, both Long Island publications.
She is also included in Who's Who in America, Who's Who in the World and the National Association of Professional Women. Serwer's paintings are included in both corporate and private collections throughout the United States and abroad. They may be seen at the Fitzgerald Gallery in Westhampton Beach, N.Y., and on her websites, www.eileenserwer.com and www.eileenserwerfineart.com.
