According to Ruthann Traylor and Michelle Post, founders of Traylor-Post Gallery, “We see him as an incredibly talented visionary artist whose work we are delighted to present at PEAC Health & Fitness March 27 - April 30, 2011.”
Sarkin’s experiences and accomplishments have been documented on ABC’s Medical Mysteries, the Discovery Science Channel Documentary “Tormented by Genius,” and the American Visionary Art Museum. A book about the life of Jon Sarkin is scheduled to be released April 5, 2011 by Pulitzer Prize nominee finalist Amy Nutt, and Tom Cruise has acquired the rights to his life story to develop a movie. His art has been featured in New Yorker Magazine, Vanity Fair and other notable media. Sarkin created the album art for Guster's latest album, Easy Wonderful, and he also created art for the music video/single "Do You Love Me."
“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the art world to see the genius of Jon Sarkin in a local setting,” says Michael Briehler, President of PEAC. “We are fortunate to be teaming up with Traylor-Post Gallery to coordinate this spectacular event.” PEAC is a premier fitness center in central New Jersey who continually displays artwork from many area artists throughout the facility.
The exhibit will feature select drawings and paintings. A reception will be held on Saturday April 9th from 5-7pm, with Jon Sarkin.
