CHRONARTUSANew Paltz, NY – Shortly after the New Year, CronArtUSA shuttered the windows of their gallery and shop at Water Street Market in New Paltz to begin a top-to-bottom renovation. The result, revealed at a soft-reopening in March, was a total transformation. The sleek design, industrial concrete floors, and gleaming white walls are offset by minimalist white and acrylic fixtures. CronArtUSA has created an open and inviting space with an urban vibe that plays off the bucolic Hudson Valley backdrop of mountains and farmland. Ryan Smith, a recent visitor, describes the overall feeling as “calming, energizing, inspiring.”

SELECTIONS 2019-2021, currently on exhibit at The Cronin Gallery, are works created by Ryan Cronin at Thread Artist Residency in Senegal, Africa thanks to the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation in September 2019, along with works created during the shutdown in New York in 2020.

The Shop, anchored in the belief that art should be in and of the world we live in and accessible to all, features an extensive line of apparel, home goods, and gifts with designs driven by the original imagery of Ryan Cronin, as well as museum-quality prints in various sizes.

Open daily from 12pm-6pm, The Cronin Gallery + Shop is located at 10 Main Street, New Paltz, NY in Water Street Market. CronArtUSA also maintains a vibrant online store at Media Contact: Melanie Cronin 845-430-8470
