MILLERTON, N.Y. -- The work of artist John D. Greene is featured in a summer exhibit July 23 to Oct. 19 at Moviehouse Studio Gallery in Millerton, N.Y.

The opening reception for Summer Exhibition 2016 TWENTY FIVE YEARS. 19 ON is Saturday, July 23 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., with an artist talk at 5 p.m.

The reception event and exhibit is free and open to the public.

The gallery's mission is to showcase the work of accomplished local artists, said a release.

Greene will discuss the works featured in the exhibit as well as the body of his work “in conversation” with fellow artist Alexander Shundi.

The Moviehouse Studio Gallery hosted John Greene for an exhibition 25 years ago.

This exhibit will showcase his latest work along with other pieces from his extensive collections. Many of the paintings are recent - done in the past year – and include a series of nail paintings which continue to intrigue and stimulate the artist. The idea for these pieces evolved when Greene’s local hardware store went out of business and he became the proud recipient of all their old rusty nails.

Another group of work in the exhibition are the silver paintings, which the artist said are "always a challenge."

The show also includes pieces from Greene’s collection “Aerial” – a series of abstracts inspired by the view of the earth from above – as well as pieces from his “Landscape” and “Color Field” collections, and others.

John Greene was born and raised in Manhattan, and attended Horace Mann and Brown University. He has been a resident of Pine Plains since the 1970’s. Greene always painted, and took courses at the New School while living and working in the City. He set up a studio in Manhattan, and juggled painting, family, and a career in Finance. In 1990, shortly after retiring, John built a new studio on the family’s Hudson Valley farm and started studying painting and sculpting full-time - taking courses at the Sculpture Center and the National Academy in New York City.

Moviehouse is located at 48 Main St., Millerton, N.Y.
