The oil paintings of Gene Gregory will be featured in a solo exhibition during March at Artists’ Showplace gallery. The show runs March 9 to 31, with an opening reception on Friday, March 9, from 6 to 9 p.m. that is free to the public, with wine and hors d’oeurves.
Gene Gregory is a self-taught oil painter and a traditionalist. As a lifelong Texan, his fondness for drawing developed in early childhood, and he has painted since his teen years. The Texas landscape, reflected in many of his early paintings, is a favorite scene. In recent years, he has primarily painted still-life, and enjoys using bright vibrant colors. Each of Gene’s works contains a small heart, (sometimes hidden), of which he explains, “The heart represents love, and it is the love of God, family, country, and not least, the love of art.” Gene is a member of Associated Creative Artists of Dallas, Visual Arts of Cedar Hill, and the DeSoto Art League.
Artists’ Showplace is located at 15615 Coit Road, Suite 230, in the southwest quadrant of Spanish Village at Coit and Arapaho. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Artists’ Showplace also has workshops held throughout the year given by internationally renowned artists and offers weekly art lessons in its fully equipped classrooms.
