Jon Gregg: evolving a mark


July 14 - August 14, 2016

Opening Reception: July 14, 5 - 7pm

Artist Talk: Saturday, July 23, 5pm

Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is pleased to present the painting exhibit Jon Gregg: evolving a mark, with an opening reception for the artist Thursday, July 14, in two locations: Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts at 183 Main Street and the new MGFA Annex at 132 Main Street in the Brooks House Atrium, both from 5 to 7 pm. An Artist Talk is scheduled for Saturday, July 23 at 5pm. Friends and alumni of the Vermont Studio Center are encouraged to attend.

Gregg’s work features gestural, abstract, richly textured oil paintstick on paper and canvas. Fortress-like structures and crowded spaces are central themes, even as his characters are caught mid-narrative, jostled by insistent markmaking and surface activity.

Gregg studied architecture under Louis Kahn; then in 1984 he and his wife Louise von Weise founded the Vermont Studio Center where he remained director until 2014. He paints and draws continuously, often filling volumes and sketchbooks during his travels abroad.
