Opening Art Reception

A NOTE FROM JOHN AND GWEN
Regrettably we are unable to attend the opening but we plan to see the show the following Saturday, July 27, from 2-3 PM if anyone would like to meet us there.
Windham Fine Arts has been a terrific supporter, and the work has presented and sold there quite successfully over the past 14 years, so we are really looking forward to another opportunity to be represented.
There will be about a dozen works in the show, the majority from the color field series which range in size from 18 inches square to a few that are 48 X 60 inches.
We have decided to do something probably unheard of in pricing for artists at commercial galleries - we will be LOWERING the prices dramatically from what they have been previously! At this point in time, it feels more important to share our profits than retain them. Accordingly, for every work that sells, we will donate an amount equal to what we personally receive, to the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester, NY, a gem of a museum where John has had the privilege of serving on the Board the past decade. This money will go specifically to an Endowment he set up to benefit Emerging Artists.
This will ensure that prices remain consistent, which we know is important to collectors, but also helps us to continue to give away money to folks who need it more than we do, and keep it in the arts “space”.
We hope you agree with this philosophy, and will use it as an opportunity to own one or more John Greene works at very reasonable prices, while also ensuring that emerging artists have more opportunity to develop their own career. Hopefully we will see you on the 27th!
