Stephen L. Crohn Gallery Exhibit: Grey Ivor Morris
January 2018 – February 2018
ARTIST RECEPTION: Saturday, January 13, at 2pm
The Saugerties Public Library is presenting Grey Ivor Morris “Artists & Writers: Portraits in Pencil” from January 2 through February 28. Faces as diverse as Bob Dylan, Jean-Michel Basquiat, William Burroughs and James Baldwin will be represented in this show.
Grey is a member of the Saugerties Artist Studio Tour and has been active as an artist (and curator) in the Hudson Valley art scene for the past 14 years, showing at venues in Saugerties, Woodstock, Kingston and Catskill. His street art has been featured for the past few summers in the village of Saugerties. He works in mosaics, acrylics, photography and his medium of choice for portraits-colored pencil.
While he has always pursued fine art, his commercial Web/print design career has spanned decades. Clients include: American Express, Chase, ClearChannel Entertainment, Fortune, Smart Money, Showtime, People Magazine, CBS, Disney, Lowes, Home Depot, DKNY, as well as local organizations Ulster Publishing, Aaron Rezny Photography, Catskill Interpretive Center, Business Alliance of Kingston, GoodLife Youth Journal, MountainView Studio and The Solar Energy Consortium,
Grey is the subject of a short film by Stephen Blauweiss that was shown on the local PBS station WMHT and can be viewed at: http://video.wmht.org/video/3000995887/
His Website – www.greyivor.com – contains his most recent work as well as links to his Instagram and Facebook pages.
In this photo, Saugerties artist Brian Lynch is seen installing a mural [5 x 21 feet] made specifically for our ground floor hallway between the Children’s Section and the Saugerties Public Library Art Gallery. It was created in connection with his show: Images from Everyday Life. The mural is collaged from various Lynch works. You can see many scenes and people depicted in Lynch’s unique style—a style that generates empathy for the human condition. This unique work is the first site-specific work done for the Library.
