Meet Martin Monroe At the Artist Reception, Friday, June 14, 2019th
7-10PM @ Sing Sing Kill Brewery, 77 Spring Street
OSSINING, NY — June 12, 2019 — Sing Sing Kill Brewery invites the community to meet artist Martin Monroe on Friday, June 14 from 7-10PM. Monroe’s art is colorful, self-reflective, and even allegorical. The artist is influenced by the late 80s/early 90s skateboarding culture and skateboard graphics. He describes his work as, “otherworldly in a sense, and not necessarily grounded in this reality.”
The artist has hung dozens of paintings in the taproom in a range of sizes. Some of Monroe’s works tend toward religious iconography, others have a celestial vibe. The show includes a series of paintings depicting pills, a reference to his past struggles with substance abuse.
Brewery Proprietor Eric Gearity commented, “Sing Sing Kill Brewery is about much more than beer. We welcome the community to appreciate the artistry that goes into everything they consume in our space. Martin’s artwork includes both brutality and whimsy. This combination of passion and irreverence is something that our customers have come to embrace in everything we do.”
Brewer Matt Curtin commented, “The same fearlessness that goes into what we create in the brewery, is embodied by the artists and performers we invite into the taproom.”
Born in Sleepy Hollow where his parents still live, the artist is currently based in Brooklyn. The art opening will take place on Friday, June 14th, 7 – 10pm. Visitors will enjoy complementary bites while they chat with the artist and view his paintings. The installation will be up through July.
Sing Sing Kill Brewery hosts a variety of programming. Recently they kicked off LGBTQ Pride Month with Ossining’s first Drag Show to a taproom of enthusiastic patrons. A full calendar of events can be found on the brewery’s Facebook page.
