About the Artist

Born in Union City, NJ, Guy Ciarcia is a classically trained artist, who was educated at the Pratt Institute, New York University and the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, Italy.  His massive body of work spans fifty years and multiple media – paintings, murals, photography, film, sculpture, ceramics, crafts and jewelry.  Early recognition came in the 1960’s as member of the Smokehouse Painters, a group of muralists commissioned by the City of New York to paint in the inner city and to engage the non-museum going public in the arts

Ciarcia has received grants from the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.  Exhibiting since 1965, his work has hung in the Jewish Museum in New York, Princeton University Museum, Trenton State College, the Ben Shahn Galleries at William Patterson College, the New Jersey State Museum, the Trenton City Museum and multiple other galleries and shows.

Ciarcia has always been a project-oriented artist.  Simply stated, he likes to make things. Over a long and accomplished career, that love of making has inspired him to explore a variety of media and different outlets of expression.
