Albany Center Gallery upcoming show: Still. Life.

    I'm totally excited to announce my inclusion in this show:  Still. Life.  This is how they described my work:

Matt Chinian’s canvases are rich with texture, and portray a style similar to post-impressionist painters of the early twentieth century. He is motivated primarily by the landscapes that he encounters around upstate New York. He is drawn to the simplicity of his everyday environment and seeks to find the “beauty and the sublime” in that which might be overlooked or only glimpsed in passing. After receiving an MFA at the University at Albany, Chinian has shown all over New York and and throughout the Northeast.
