Eileen Murphy, Artist in Residence
Born in 1981 in Mount Kisco, NY; BA from Mount Holyoke College, 2003; MFA from Pratt Institute, 2006. Eileen Murphy has spent her life along the Hudson River and has lived in Brooklyn, NY for the last fifteen years. Her recent paintings are based on the landscape of Columbia County, NY, where she spends part of her time. Eileen has shown widely in New York City and the metropolitan area, and was awarded residencies to the Vermont Studio Center in 2004 and to Yaddo in 2013 and 2017. She received the Individual Artist Award from the Santo Foundation in 2017; in that same year, she was invited by the US Department of State to participate in the Art in the Embassies program. Her work is currently on view at the American Embassy in Algiers, Algeria, and in 2018 Eileen was invited to that city to give a workshop and a series of lectures.
About the Artist Residency:
In its inaugural year, the High Line Nine x Sugarlift Artist Residency celebrates the energy, candor and resiliency of the beautiful city we call home. In lieu of packed gallery openings during the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re excited for an engaging and inspiring alternative: the chance to see artists’ creation processes in the very Chelsea windows that often display their finished art pieces. Here, the city has the rare opportunity to see one of its talented artists at work for an extended period.
Sugarlift is a gallery and online marketplace that connects collectors directly with today’s best emerging artists. Our mission is help more artists create sustainable careers by finding a new audience of collectors. Since 2014, we’ve helped thousands of art buyers find artwork from emerging and established artists in New York City and beyond. Learn more at sugarlift.com.
