Similar to the graduation season we bid farewell to our winter artists and welcome a new stable of talent for the summer/fall season. The recent additions to our NYC showroom bring realism, historic whimsy and sculpture to our curated walls. This group uses different techniques and materials but they all create a unifying impact, which generates a dynamic energy.

A Retrospective of Alexander Rutsch Opening Reception


transFORM Gallery broke all art opening night attendance and sales records during our Saturday, June 13th, Alexander Rutsch Retrospective reception. Understandably, this was a result of Alexander’s international notoriety and local influence as an artist.

transFORM Art Gallery Director, Kara O’Neill and Alexander’s daughter Alexi Brock, lead the presentation reminiscing about her father’s early background and his time spent in France where he collaborated with his contemporaries, Picasso and Dali.  These collaborations are strongly seen in several paintings throughout our gallery.

This show is a great opportunity to view museum quality work as evidenced by the mixed media portrait of Dali created during a sitting at the St. Regis, New York in 1969. Rutsch’s work is collected worldwide and we are thrilled to make it available to the local audience.

An artist in her own right, Alexander’s wife, Kathy Rutsch, also contributed ceramic arts and paintings to this show.

We think, with Alexander’s musical background, he would have appreciated musicians Eric Katz and Charlie Rhyner, for setting the mood and providing jazz entertainment throughout the night.

This unique show runs through August 30, 2015.

Irish Meetup: Daniel O’Sullivan’s “Ireland through Dreamlike Eyes” Presentation


We were happy to welcome two New York City Meetup groups to our NYDC showroom. The Irish in New York and The Irish / British Genealogy Groups convened last Thursday, June 11th, to hear Dublin artist, Daniel O’Sullivan talk about his “Ireland” series of paintings.

transFORM Art Gallery Director, Kara O’Neill and Daniel O’Sullivan lead the discussion on Ireland’s past, present and future. While enjoying wine and light refreshments, the attentive audience asked interesting questions and added to the commentary.

Speaking of his experiences, Daniel’s art captures both the tradition and uniqueness of Irish culture, subtleties often lost to the tourist or non-Irish Native.

A special thank you to all the guests in attendance for making this Meetup so enjoyable.

Here’s feedback from our guests:

YOU’RE INVITED – SUMMER ART EXHIBIT OPENING NIGHT: ALEXANDER RUTSCH


Join us and Westchester Magazine in celebrating the opening of our new exhibit in New Rochelle on Saturday, June 13th from 6 to 9pm.

Please send your RSVP to rsvp@transformgallery.com

transFORM Gallery announces their art exhibit for the Summer season, a retrospective of Alexander Rutsch’s work, sponsored by Westchester Magazine at the transFORM showroom and gallery in New Rochelle, NY.

The celebrated Austrian artist approached painting and sculpting as he lived life- with the eyes of a child and the hand of a poet. Constantly in the quest for rhythms of form and vibrations of color, he caught the “sparks in the shadow” and evidenced their fullest reality and beauty in his creations.

His work is held in the collections of H.M Queen Fabiola of Belgium, Walter Cronkite of New York, Gala and Salvador Dali, Sammy Davis Jr, Jacqueline Kennedy- Onassis, Guy Laroche of Paris, Belgium’s Museum of Liège, Paris’s Musée d’Art Moderne, New York’s Museum of Modern Art and Baroness Alix de Rothschild of France.

He was an artist of the purest breed-an artist who had no choice but to paint. He was a chosen traveler of the depths of existence; a man who followed a longing to explore his inner self and relate his findings with the energy of the universe.

The opening reception for the art exhibit will be held on Saturday, June 13th from 6 to 9pm. The night will include delicious food and wine as well as musical entertainment by Eric Katz and Charlie Rhyner. Start off summer the right way and join transFORM Gallery in celebrating the occasion and the wonderful work of Alexander Rutsch. The artwork will be on display and available for purchase through August 30, 2015.

Check Out Our Opening Reception for International Prints, Posters and Etchings


We were very excited by the great attendance we received at the Opening Reception for International, Prints, Posters and Etchings on Saturday, March 14th. Thank you for making the cold, rainy night a bright and fun time. We especially appreciate the Russian Speaking Parents of Westchester for joining us and we look forward to welcoming you all back to the gallery at our next event.

There was plenty of entertainment throughout the evening as well, besides the delicious food and wine provided by our Sponsor, Westchester Magazine. International Artist, Daniel O’Sullivan, gave an excellent presentation on the elements of Irish culture found in his paintings. It was a thought provoking talk about the Irish way of life. With St. Patrick’s Day so close to the show, it was definitely a unique opportunity that we were happy to be a part of.

The evening concluded with a grand musical finale. A special transFORM Gallery thank you goes out to Eddy Idiaquez for bringing his guitar and his talent to the event and sharing a few songs with us. Even some of the other guests, and transFORM Gallery Director, Kara O’Neill, joined in and sang a few tunes. Also, we thank Westchester Magazine and the Iron Tomato of White Plains for providing the food and libations for our evening celebrating the arts in Westchester.

Don’t Forget – If you grabbed a gift certificate, you can use it any time to get $100 off art work in the exhibit between now and June 7th, 2015.  There are still gift certificates left.  Stop by the showroom and pick one up today.

Take a look at all the fun we had:
