Reception and Artist Talk: Friday, June 12 from 7pm to 9pm

.

VisArts is pleased to present Sharpened a solo exhibition of sculpture, drawing, and video by Greg Braun in the Gibbs Street Gallery from June 3 to July 5.  A reception and artist talk is scheduled for June 12 from 7pm to 9pm.

Greg Braun “sharpens” his obsession with custom motorcycles from the Northern California Bay Area circa 1970 and the bling of retail showrooms into colorful new work in a broad range of materials and scale. His work stretches from floor to ceiling, across walls and floors and embraces the gallery’s wall of windows. Sharpened offers a fresh direction for Braun. His minimal approach with common building materials holds strong, but he surprises with glimpses of the underlying inspirations for his forms.

About the Artist: Greg Braun’s work has been exhibited in Maryland, Virginia, Washington, DC, and California. He lives and works in rural Hartwood, Virginia from a home he renovated that includes an office, workshop, and studio. His creative time is spent between making artwork, designing custom CAD software programs and giving classroom instruction for various types of CAD software. www.grbraun.com
