Gallery on the Green presents “The New Normal”
September 12 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Gallery on the Green is pleased to continue our season with a members’ themed exhibit entitled,“The New Normal,” plus a solo show by Nancy Greco. These shows will be on exhibit from Friday, September 4th through Sunday, October 4th. Visit an historic gallery and view newly created fine art from the artist guilds’ 100+ members. The shows provide an array of stunning work from paintings, drawings, graphic arts and sculpture to ceramics, fiber/beadwork and photography. The gallery is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 5 pm.
Nancy Greco’s solo show “Reflections” explores what it is that makes one object or thought more memorable or important than another and what makes something seem lasting rather than fleeting. The dream and symbolic imagery in her drawings is an attempt to open a dialogue with viewers, to encourage them to reflect upon their own memories and connections regarding the changeable way we evaluate what we look at or experience both present and past.
Greco went to Southern Connecticut State University and Wesleyan University and has an M.F.A. from Ohio State University. She received a Ford Foundation Grant, an Individual Artist’s Grant and a Visiting Artist’s Grant for Lithography Workshops for educators and students from the Connecticut Commission on the Arts. Early awards include the First Award in the Pratt Graphics 6th International Miniature Print Exhibition in NYC and a First Place in The Connecticut Women Artists Open Juried Exhibition. In late 2017 she received an Individual Artist’s Grant from the Artist’s Resource Trust of the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation. Last year, Greco was awarded The Maxwell Shepherd Prize at Gallery on the Green.
Greco’s solo exhibitions include Martin Sumers Gallery in New York City and the New Britain Museum of American Art in New Britain, Connecticut. In 2018, Trustman Art Gallery at Simmons University was the venue for a solo show “Recurrence” that traced the appearance and transformation of symbolic imagery through nearly five decades of Greco’s prints and drawings.
The Gallery on the Green will be following the State of Connecticut’s COVID-19 reopening guidelines. All visitors inside the gallery are required to wear a mask and observe social distancing protocol. Given the circumstances, the above protocol may change in accordance with CT State guidelines.
