You can see new work by artist Gregory Graham up at the Bloomington Theatre and Art Center's Atrium Gallery through November 15.
These paintings are small in scale (6 x 6 or 5 x 7 inches mostly), on panels, and painted with enamel paint. I was going to write that the paint qualities and the attention to detail make these paintings jewel like, but they are more robust than that, each supported by a sense of humor and insight; each easily expanding into a story.
The show signage explained that "artist Gregory Graham approaches these new small-scale paintings in the same manner he would a luncheon date with a close friend. Anything of interest would be open for discussion. Thus, the resulting images vary in subject matter, as would the topics of that lunch time conversation."
Go "listen in" to those conversations. Not only will you enjoy them, you'll come away thinking about your visual world in a richer way.
The gallery is open Monday–Friday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday 1 p.m. to 10 p.m.
