Big Fat Bacon and Other Paintings
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 21, 2-5 p.m.
Greg Graham is known for his intimate, postcard-sized paintings which depict everyday events and ordinary places with charm and humor. These miniature paintings, created with model train enamel, are snapshots of the everyday occurrences that rarely register in our consciousness.
Street signs, parking lots, a tiled bath room, holiday decorations, crosswalks and State Fair booths all become iconic through Grahams’ lens. He bestows a simple nobility on these awkward and sometimes graceless intersections of humanity and city life. Graham’s keen ability to isolate a place and capture a snippet of time brings life to his paintings.
Graham, who grew up and was educated in NY, moved to Minnesota in 1992 and currently lives and works in St Paul. Graham has exhibited his work across the United States and in Twin Cities for over 25 years. He has received awards and grants from the Jerome Foundation and the Minnesota State Arts Board.
The artist will be present at the opening reception Saturday, October 21st from 2-5 pm. The opening reception and exhibition runs concurrently with Industrial Output by Rod Massey. Both shows continue through November 25, 2017.
