Art Reception: John Forgione’s Plein Air Paintings at Greiser’s
February 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
JOIN US AT GREISER’S ON THE EVENING OF FEBRUARY 9 FOR THE OPENING RECEPTION OF JOHN FORGIONE’S ART SHOW
Part-time plein air painter John Forgione is arguably the most visible artist in Easton.
Weekdays, Forgione runs a digital marketing agency. But on weekends when the weather cooperates, he is a fixture of Easton’s open spaces. With his easel, oils, brushes, and canvas, you might find him in the orchard at Trout Brook Valley, amid the sunflowers on Adams Road, or capturing scenes at one of Easton’s bucolic farms; Gilbertie’s, Maple Row, Sabia’s, and Sport Hill Farm are among his beloved subjects. And he has been commissioned to capture on canvas several historic local homes.
Forgione also enjoys setting up his easel in other scenic Fairfield County spots, as well as on the water in Rhode Island, Barbados, Hawaii, and Positano. He’s even painted standing in the middle of the Brooklyn Bridge.
It’s been nearly four years since he hung his paintings on the walls of the “new” Greiser’s, during our first year in business. Back then, when space in our store was even more limited than it is today, he hung his art on a wall in the kitchen — our “Galley Gallery” — and we invited guests to squeeze past the chest freezer and hand sink to view it. This time, we’re thrilled to be able to offer him professional hooks on art moulding in our dining room. Come see how much we and the artist have grown over the years!
All artwork will be for sale, and will be on view through April 1.
