Countdown to Cloud 9: Greg

It’s fairly obvious what puts Greg on cloud nine… painting!

Low residency program artist Greg, who periodically comes to the studio to consult on finishing approaches and to curate which of his many paintings he’d like to show and sell with Make Studio, spends virtually all of his free time making beautiful works inspired by modernism.

If you’ve been lucky enough to meet Greg, like us you know that he’s possibly the nicest person in the whole world (perhaps he’s the niceness version of “The Most Interesting Man in the World”, and he’s also pretty interesting, too)!

We wish we had the opportunity to spend more time with him in the studio, but Greg works hard all week in a full-time position at Harmony Bakery, just around the corner from the studio. You can say a quick “hello” to Greg there every day, and also see a rotating selection of his recent paintings on Harmony’s walls while purchasing a delicious and healthy meal or snack.

 

Over the years, Greg had shown and sold his work in many venues, including at the Arc of Baltimore’s Art in the Round event in which his works always are auctioned off at a high price (generously helping to support the Arc’s programs).

We’re proud that Greg has chosen to consult and show his art with Make Studio for several years now, and look forward to continuing our fruitful collaboration!

 

Make Studio artists are counting down each day until our ninth anniversary celebration by sharing something that puts them on cloud nine. To help us celebrate, join them here on the blog all month through February 22nd, and in-person on February 23rd at Cloud 9!
