Emerging Artist Zoe McGuire’s Radiant Art Nouveau-Inspired Paintings Inaugurate Gaa Gallery’s New York Space.


Brooklyn-based artist Zoe McGuire (b. 1996) has garnered a reputation for her luminous and vivid oil paintings and pastel drawings. A graduate of Skidmore College, where she studied art history, McGuire’s work is evocative of several historical movements, foremost the Transcendental Painting Group, but also Art Nouveau and Precisionism—while simultaneously being immediately recognizable for her own distinctive aesthetic. Currently enrolled in the MFA program at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, McGuire has already become a leading new artist to watch, and in 2022 she was the subject of two solo shows as well as half a dozen group shows ranging from Hong Kong to London.


On view through May 6, 2023, Gaa Gallery is presenting “Zoe McGuire: Cambium,” the inaugural exhibition at the gallery’s recently opened New York location in lower Manhattan.
