Artworks Gallery Presents

Don Green: Sculpture, Paintings and Drawings
Exhibition Dates: January 5 - 29, 2022
Open for Gallery Hop: January 7, 7 - 9 pm
Reception: Sunday, January 9, 2 - 4 pm

Don Green’s recent sculpture is using wood he received from Reynolda Gardens clearing old trees from the close to the house – when they were preparing to reroof and refurbish the house.
Most of the trees were magnolias and cedar. In addition, Green incorporates old cedar and cherry, oak and walnut for their special barrels or knots or contorted grains.
One of his main influences is Constantine Brancusi; the artist states, “I have always liked his elegant simplicity of form and attention to surface and fine materials,”
Much of Green’s work refers to forms and articulation seen in his earlier works. This exhibit will include earlier works and new works, merging older and new pieces.
Additionally, he will be exhibiting three new abstract paintings, which reference landscapes and are reminiscent of the work he created when he first started painting seriously in undergraduate school after finishing his army service. Also on view, will be many smaller sketches of personal items from his collection.

Don Green received his MFA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wisconsin in 1966, his BFA from Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, Illinois in 1964, and an Advertising Art Degree from the American Academy of Art, Chicago, Illinois in 1956.
Join Artworks Gallery in celebrating Don Green and his life commitment to his art!


The exhibit is free and open to the public.
