This month’s exhibit includes a number of landscapes and flora and fauna done in oils,
acrylics, and pastels. “Greg’s empathy towards his subject whether it be people, animals or the natural world became apparent early on. … He eagerly explores the shores, rivers, and woodlands seeking truth with the same energy and curiosity as when he was a child,” a release issued by the library stated.
The exhibit is on display on the Whittemore Gallery Wall and can be viewed during regular library hours. For more information, call (203) 729-4591.
