ALAN AVERY ART COMPANY continues their 40th year Celebration with artist Gregory Botts in his second exhibition with the gallery, ARCADIAN INTERLUDE.
OPENING RECEPTION - June 10, 2022 - 7pm
Exhibition continues through July 30, 2022
Botts spent two Covid years in a farmhouse in upstate NY, painting still life traditionally from a style learned in his youth on Long Island. Arcadian Interlude examines new forms which might be used to express a future hope in the face of an impending environmental disaster. He keeps a still life set up through the seasons and has found profundities in watching the slow change and cycle.
Gregory Botts (b. 1952) was born in Harrisburg, PA. and attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City, as well as assisted the artist Paul Georges. He received a scholarship to attend the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine. Botts has served as painting instructor at Anderson Ranch Arts Center for the past 5 seasons, at the University of Santa Barbara, California since the 1980s to now 2006, and teaches figure drawing at the National Academy of Design and NY Studio School. Botts is a full time artist. He has exhibited extensively in both solo and group shows across the United States.
