Chestnut Street Lofts Lobby Gallery
The exhibition “Explorations of Thought: Combinatorial Works by Gregg Harper” will be on view at the Gallery at the Chestnut Street Lofts, 21 Chestnut Street, Portland, ME, May 1 – 31, 2019. The opening reception will occur during First Friday Art Walk, May 3rd, 2019, 5-8pm. The gallery is located in the first floor lobby of the building. "With the exhibition title I am paying homage to a dedicated series of college courses that steered me in the direction of art and archaeology. These courses covered subjects ranging from eastern philosophy and Jungian psychology to color theory and post-modern art. The artworks to be exhibited are a selection of mixed media works of collage and assemblage that include my painting, drawing, photography, cut paper as well as objects collected over a lifetime." The gallery will be open to the public during the First Friday Art Walk and then by appointment for the remainder of the month. Gallery admission is free and the artworks will be available for sale.
