Starting Monday, September 3, her mesmerizing landscapes, florals, and wildlife art will be on view in “A Million Colors Fill My Mind,” the artist’s first solo exhibition at the Solon Center for the Arts. Visitors are invited to attend an opening reception for the artist on Saturday, September 8, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., and the exhibition will continue through Thursday, October 4, at the Solon Center for the Arts, located at 6315 SOM Center Rd. in Solon, Ohio.
Retired from a career in teaching, Gregg has returned to the passion that captured her interest from the time she was a little girl. Over the years, she has developed a distinctive, impressionistic style derived from unusual techniques. Employing the same optical effect used by the original Impressionists—the way our eyes visually blend distinct colors when seen at a distance, yet enjoy the mosaic of colors when seen up close—Gregg tends to apply notes of pure color, sometimes straight from the tube, to her canvases with either a palette knife or her fingers.
Gregg’s bold, contemporary art has garnered a great deal of attention and accolades since she became a professional artist. Her work has been selling across the United States, and she often participates in juried exhibitions. She is a member of the American Impressionist Society, the Valley Art Center of Chagrin Falls, and the Hudson Society of Artists.
An exhibition of work by a local artist who is starting to emerge on the national art scene is a perfect fit for the mission of the Solon Center for the Arts. Located in Old City Hall, built in 1899, the Center is dedicated to supporting all of the arts, from art and music to theater and dance, and to providing unique learning resources for the people of the Solon community and beyond. “A Million Colors Fill My Mind” creates an opportunity for the region’s art enthusiasts to celebrate one of their own.
