NEW YORK, NY – Jan Larsen’s Market Makers is opening September 17th, 2015 at Hoerle-Guggenheim Gallery.  Market Makers is Jan’s reflection on the exchange that takes place between art and commerce in the markets each day, drawing inspiration from the era that gave birth to mass-marketing and modern American consumer culture, on Madison Avenue in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s, as well as the past fifteen years of his own work in fine art.  The show will be up at the Hoerle-Guggenheim Gallery at 527 West 23rd Street, New York, NY 10011, through October 10th, 2015.


ABOUT THE ARTIST – Born in the Midwestern United States in 1967, Jan Larsen was raised in Pennsylvania and Boston, received an undergraduate degree with honors from Harvard College in 1989, a master’s degree in business management from Oxford University in 1991, and studied art as process at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.  A son of art collectors, curators, and educators, Jan was raised amongst fine art and the artistic process.  He came to New York in 1997 and has held painting and production studios there since, including four eponymous galleries, in Brooklyn, SoHo, and TriBeCa.
