EERDMANS 14 East 10th Street New York, NY

Jane Stubbs and Emily Eerdmans are pleased to announce “Corkillage”, an exhibition of cork-applied boxes, mirrors, and objects by Marian McEvoy. The exhibition will take place May 3–25, 2017 at Eerdmans Fine Art, with an opening reception Tuesday May 2. Opening hours will be Noon to 6pm Tuesdays–Saturdays.

With a nod to tramp art, McEvoy takes wine bottle corks and acorns to build out her architectural creations in her signature color palette of natural, white, black and red. Her boxes are currently in the collection of Pierre Bergé, Alex Reece and Alison Spear, Mitchell Owens and Christopher Spitzmiller. This is the first show of Marion McEvoy’s work.

Marian McEvoy lived in Paris from 1975 to 1990, where she wrote about European fashion and design for WWD and W. She has served as editor in chief for Elle, Elle Decor and House Beautiful, and has contributed articles about style and stylish characters for the Herald Tribune, French Vogue, the World of Interiors, Domino, Vanity Fair, the Wall Street Journal and T magazine. California born, and the author of a book on the celebrated Moroccan-based Bill Willis and Glue Gun Decor, McEvoy is an ardent crafter in the Hudson Valley, where she lives in a colorful cottage.
