Marc Rubin paints still lives that invite meaning and evoke story. He captures everyday objects at eye-level and sized in the frame as they are in the world—but he imbues them with a spirit and presence so that, emotionally, they become larger than life.
Rubin’s work can be seen in galleries in Philadelphia and Scranton, PA; Corning and Greenport, NY; Lambertville, NJ; and Chestertown, MD. From 1990–2001, he painted weekly under the guidance of world-renowned painter Thomas Buechner, and continues in that tradition to masterfully paint representational oils on panels. In 2006 he taught painting and figure drawing at Elmira College.
In addition to his work as a painter, Rubin is an award-winning graphic designer and owner of Marc Rubin Associates, which offers business-aligned creative solutions to graphic communications needs. He serves on the executive board of directors for the Arnot Art Museum, he is a member of the American Institute of Graphic Arts, the Design Management Institute and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He served on the board of The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes for twelve years and is a past board member of the Upstate New York chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts.
