Overview
More
Born on June 21, 1972 on the front seat of a late 60’s Plymouth Station wagon Artist Ryan Cronin made a bold entrance into this world and he has kept his family, friends, and fans on their toes ever since. From as far back as he can remember his father told him “you can be the garbage man, you can be the president.” These words stuck with him and shaped him into the artist he is today. For over two decades he has been using Rust-Oleum paint to create his own unique iconography. His work has been described as Pop that teeters between Abstract and Representational. It is a mashup of high and low culture, driven by a deep sense of color and placement. It's large-scale, bold, and marked by its signature gloss finish. It is accessible and emotional, with a playful edge. Cronin has exhibited his work in galleries, museums, and art fairs throughout the United States and has completed several large scale murals including the silo at Tuthilltown Spirits/Hudson Valley Whiskey and a mural in Wynwood during Art Basel. In May of 2015 Ryan and his wife Melanie opened a gallery in New Paltz, New York. The gallery is located in the quaint Water Street Market. It features a mix of Cronin’s original works, museum quality prints, sculpture, and a line of wares designed by Cronin; ranging from t-shirts and socks, to shower curtains and pillows and more.

This gallery showcases the work of Ryan Cronin. The space is pretty small given the scale of some of his work.

We checked out trip advisor reviews for this place and saw it was highly rated before we made the trip. But we saw the art pieces, we were not impressed at all. The art pieces look very amateurish. The gallery itself is a tiny and...More

Loved visiting this gallery on our girls weekend in New Paltz. For those who aren't in the market for an original piece, the artist has many smaller wearables and home items available with the same artwork. Love my new shower curtain!!

Ryan Cronin Gallery is the perfect gallery featuring the artists unique paintings. If a painting isn't what you are in the market for, there are many home and gift items made by the artist which are fun and whimsical and lively!
