CronArtUSA, the brand behind the artist, oversees The Cronin Gallery + The Shop based in Hudson Valley featuring a rotating exhibition of Cronin’s oil paintings, pastel drawings, and sculptures and an extensive line of merchandise. From original works of art, to home goods, apparel, and gifts, CronArtUSA is an invitation into the world of Artist Ryan Cronin, and an opportunity to bring art into everyday life.
The Evolution Of The Artist
Cronin’s bold iconography grounds the viewer in time and place by tapping into our collective nostalgia. An established painter, sculptor, and muralist Cronin reconfigures the world through art by appropriating text and figures from his surroundings. Since the early 90’s Cronin has been creating work that tackles social issues and brings a sense of play into the viewer’s day. He approaches his work from a place of inclusivity and cultural awareness, engaging in a dialogue around the accessibility of art.
Art For more than just your walls
What drives Cronin’s practice and evolution as an artist is his awareness that his work both provokes and connects people. CronArtUSA disseminates his vision into a product line that is easily consumable and grounded in his belief that art should be in and of the world we live in and accessible to all.
Art For Good
From the beginning, CronArtUSA has been committed to using our platform and resources for good. Giving back is an essential feature of our business model, that is why we established our charitable fund 12 Months of Giving. We weave our fundraising initiatives into our day-to-day business operations, giving us the opportunity to partner with changemakers in support of causes close to our heart throughout the year. All initiates are rooted in the original work of Artist Ryan Cronin, honoring his commitment to using art for good.
Beyond the hudson valley
Cronin has pushed his practice beyond the United States and maintains a global presence. He has opened pop-up locations in Westport, CT and Pound Ridge, NY and continues to show his work in Asbury Park, NJ with Parlor Gallery, and Mallorca, Spain with Gallery Red.
Thread Artist Residency Senegal, Africa
In September of 2019, Cronin participated in a month-long artist residency at Thread Artists Residency and Cultural Center, thanks to the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation in Senegal, West Africa. With almost thirty years of dedication to socially-conscious, collaborative, and often public art installations, Cronin seamlessly integrated his recent experiences at Thread into his practice.
