Geoffrey Gneuhs is a figurative and representational painter. After studying in New York and Paris, he received a major award in 2011 for his graphite drawing “Women at Rest” from the highly-regarded Salmagundi Club in NYC. His work is diverse, including landscapes, cityscapes, portraits, sketches, and still lifes.
He was born in Lakewood, Ohio, and grew up in River Forest, Illinois. After graduating
Providence College in Rhode Island, he taught in an all-black public school in rural South Carolina. He then studied theology and philosophy in Washington, D.C. He was ordained a priest. He pursued postgraduate studies at Yale, writing his thesis on Peter Maurin, the mentor of Dorothy Day, co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement.
His art studio is in the north tower of historic Saint Jean Baptiste Church. In the heart of NYC, it is an inspiring space and ideal for viewing his work. A brochure that includes a selection of his works is available upon request.
His commission work is his main focus. An individual or collective family portrait, a landscape of a favorite home or place, or a still life are all available.
He hosts showings from time to time in his studio. These typically run from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and offer an opportunity to view a larger body of his work and to meet the artist himself. Please let him know if you have interest in attending, and he will forward you all the appropriate details.
Monsignor G. Mustaciuolo - Archdiocese of NYC
"Geoffrey’s portrait splendidly captures all that is Dorothy Day; her soul,
spirit, simplicity, gentleness, resoluteness, and holiness. Only someone
who knew Dorothy Day as well as Geoffrey could have brought all of
these characteristics of her together in a single portrait."
Ted Alt - Financier
"My wife and I were very pleased with the portrait of me painted by
Geoffrey in his unique studio. We were so pleased that I included a
photograph of it in my recently published memoirs."
William Paul Haas, former President of Providence College. RI
"Geoffrey's cityscapes are full of buildings bearing the warm light on
their surfaces, teasing the question, 'what else is there?' He finds in
these least likely places light within the shadows, presence within the
emptiness and richness."
