NEW YORK, NY.- As part of its ongoing series of public art projects in New York City, CYNTHIA-REEVES Projects announces the installation of HIGH RISE, a nineteen-foot-high sculpture by noted American artist, Chuck Ginnever, at Riverside Park on the Hudson River in New York City. The exhibition is located just north of Riverbank State Park along the waterfront, which can be accessed by entering the State Park on West 145th Street and taking the stairs or elevator down to the lower level to access the lawns, or by taking the stairs at Riverside Drive and West 145th Street and walking south along the water.

Chuck Ginnever has lived and worked at his home in Putney, Vermont since the 1960s, and continues to create monumental scale artworks in this, his eighty-first year. HIGH RISE is one of three sculptures on view this year. MEDUSA, another large-scale work, will be on exhibition along with TRANSFER at Talix in Beacon, New York, in proximity to Dia: Beacon, later this month in Beacon, New York.

Ginnever born in California, traveled and studied in Europe (1953-55 ), with two years at the SF Art Institute and two more at Cornell before moving to New York in 1959. While living and working in New York, Ginnever became friends with other artists and sculptors including Carl Andre, Ronald Bladen, John Chamberlain, Mark diSuvero, Tom Doyle, Peter Forakis, Barnett Newman, Bob Smithson, Brian Wall and Lawrence Weiner -- with many of those friendships continuing to the present.

Kenneth Baker, noted art critic, made the following observation in his survey of Ginnever's work from 1970-2000: "His intention for his sculpture is as elemental as its design. In a society in which the integration of space and time is consigned to the realm of idea rather than that of direct physical experience, the work proposes to return human perception to its original state." Most recently Ken Baker published his review, Charles Ginnever: Rashomon, in the San Francisco Chronicle (November 23, 2012). Of the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art Show, Baker wrote, "The San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art gives us a rare, close look at one of the most significant and little-celebrated innovations in the late 20th century art: Charles Ginnever's 'Rashomon' Suite."

Ginnever's work is included in numerous public and private collections around the world, including Storm King Art Center, which owns three works as part of their permanent collection in Mountainville, NY; the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City; Runnymede Sculpture Farm in California; the San Francisco Museum of Fine Art; the Hirschhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC; The Martin Z. Margulies Sculpture Park in Miami; the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis; the Laumeier International Sculpture Park in St. Louis, the Seattle Art Museum, and the Australian National Gallery, Canberra, Australia, among other noted institutions.

The first in the recent series of public art projects brought to New York City by CYNTHIA-REEVES Projects was a patinated steel sculpture by Torn Steel artist, Jonathan Prince, titled G2V, which was on view at the Dag Hammarskjold Plaza through May, 2013. LOTUS, an eighteen-foot-high sculpture by internationally exhibiting Korean artist JaeHyo Lee, is installed at Union Square through October of this year. Noted collector Mike De Paola sponsored that project.

CYNTHIA-REEVES Projects has maintained a keen interest in the artworks originating from New England. Chuck Ginnever's installation at Riverside Park is a natural outgrowth of the gallery's long-standing platform of artists in the Connecticut River Valley for nearly two decades.
