Event Details

John Gregg is a graduate of the Royal West of England College of Art. He emigrated to Canada in 1966 where he worked as an Art Director for four years. He formed his own company in 1970. The company operated until 1999, garnering both National and International Design awards throughout the course of its existence. Throughout his professional career, John Gregg has pursued his love of fine art, drawing, and painting. This has resulted in joint exhibitions of his work at the Bristol Museum. Frost and Reed and Hazelton Lanes Galleries with one man shows at the University of Toronto (Erin Mills Campus) and the Post Office Gallery, Oakville. His work is also represented in National and international collections, including a sixteen by eight foot mural in the reception area of the Erco Tenneco group building. His work is equally balanced between portraiture and landscape, and sometimes a combination of both. It falls broadly between expressionism and impressionism.

Painters that have influenced his work include: Kokoschka, Degas, the post-impressionists, as well as British schools of painting indicative of the work of Sutherland, Augustus John, Eardley, Freud, and others of that period.

He works mainly from sketches, water colour notes and photographs for landscapes and model sketches for portraiture. 

John Gregg perceives a painting as a crystallization of mood, time, and space. 

Come see this solo show of John Gregg’s work at Melt Gallery from September 21-October 15. Please join us for the opening reception on September 23 from 1-4 PM
