Artist Talk & Gallery Walk
* UPDATE *
Due to unfortunate, unforeseen circumstances, Daniel Greene will be unable to attend our scheduled Artist Talk on Saturday, October 19. We apologize for any disappointment or inconvenience this may have caused.
Our Curator of Education, Pam Coffman, will speak about Mr. Greene’s incredible work on his behalf at the originally scheduled time and location. Thank you for understanding.
Award-winning artist, Daniel Greene, regarded as the foremost pastelist in the United States, will conduct a gallery walk at our downtown location to discuss his inspiration, style, and how and why he selects his subjects. Some of Greene’s most notable sitters include: First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, Ayn Rand, Astronaut Walter Schirra, William Randolph Hearst, “Wendy’s” founder Dave Thomas, Composer Alan Menken, Bryant Gumbel, and Bob Schieffer of CBS News.
Greene has been inducted into the Pastel Hall of Fame and the Oil Painters of America Society Hall of Fame. In 1995, the American Society of Portrait Artists presented him with the John Singer Sargent Award for lifelong dedication to the achievement of excellence in portraiture. In 2001, he was awarded the Gold Medal of the Portrait Society of America.
Join us for this rare opportunity to listen to an American master while viewing some of his world-renowned work.
