Roost Restaurant and Union Arts Center Present Two New Exhibitions: ANDREA BARUFFI: PLAYFUL and SUZANNE AUER: COLORSCAPES on view May 2 – July 25, 2023; Opening Reception: Sunday May 21, 2023, 12- 2 PM

Roost Restaurant and Union Arts Center are pleased to present two new exhibitions featuring the work of Andrea Baruffi and Suzanne Auer.

In Gallery 1, Andrea Baruffi showcases a collection of prints made from his original acrylic paintings. Baruffi's artistic style is characterized by whimsy and humor. Many of the original acrylic paintings, from which the "Playful" series of art prints are made, range in size from 60" x 80" to 80" x 80". They are available for purchase directly from the artist's studio, located two hours north of Florence. His work is widely exhibited throughout Italy.

Baruffi, a former illustrator and longtime resident of Piermont, returned to Italy after his retirement, having worked in New York for major advertising agencies and children’s book publishers. He received classical training in art at the prestigious Liceo Artistico in Bologna and holds a degree in architecture from the University of Florence. He cites Edward Hopper and Caravaggio among his favorite artists. To learn more about Baruffi and his work, visit Instagram page @andrea_baruffi_paintings. For inquiries about sales or further information, please contact Kathy at (845) 652-0737 (Piermont) or kathleenbaruffi@gmail.com.

In Gallery 2, Suzanne Auer presents a series of paintings that highlight her love of color. The paintings evoke a sense of nostalgia and a feeling of revisiting favorite places and things. Auer showcases her process of planning a painting around a specific color and creating a visual path through it.

Auer received her BFA in Jewelry and Silversmithing from SUNY New Paltz and started her own business painting children’s clothes and murals. This led to creating The Art

Studio, a business teaching drawing and painting to children and adults for over 20 years in Highland Mills, NY. She is now retired and painting every free moment she

gets. For more information, visit www.suzanneauerpaintings.com.
