Ross School is excited for the return to campus of Jim Gingerich, a local artist with a deep connection to the school community. This summer he will resume a post he held in 2009 and 2011 as a visiting artist and guest instructor.
For the past 30 years, the Bridgehampton-based artist’s oil paintings and pastels have been displayed in group and solo exhibitions throughout the country. His work has been displayed in the public collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Yale University Art Gallery, Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, Arkansas Arts Center, and many others. His private collectors include actor Robert DeNiro, country singer Jimmy Buffett, and director Rob Marshall. In 2008, Jim was a featured artist in Ross School’s annual seventh grade exhibition, which that year was titled Narratives: Real and Imagined.
Throughout the summer, Jim will be developing a series of paintings capturing the beauty of Ross School’s campus, beginning with the iconic Nike Statue. He looks forward to documenting additional interior and exterior scenes. The resulting collection will be displayed on campus at the end of the season. Additionally, Jim will be imparting his expertise to summer students taking art classes.
