by K. Gretchen Greene
Monday, June 22, 2015
Glacier National Park Community Building
Join Artist in Residence, K. Gretchen Greene, known for her innovative work in steel and bronze, at a brown bag luncheon presentation. Drawing on memories of oceans, rivers, and streams, Greene combines curling, twisting waves, rhythmic perforations, and fragments of torch etched text to create large, multilayered, abstract wall sculptures and sculptural table bases. She will describe her process from hiking trails to welding booth and offer a preview of what future worked inspired by Glacier may look like.
Recent exhibitions of Greene’s work include major international art and design fairs, Todd Merrill’s gallery in NYC, a solo show at New York’s Hammond Museum, the Pasadena Showcase House of Design and an installation at the East Boston Harbor. Recent press includes the Economist, Forbes China, USA Today, Whitewall, andthe Magazine Antiques. Greene’s work is in institutional collections including Christian Dior (flagship store, Seoul, Korea).
