GREG CALDWELL: NEIGHBORHOODUpcoming
PROJECTS GALLERY: JAN 25 – MAR 16, 2019
OPENING RECEPTION: JAN 25
What if the word Neighborhood was perceived as a title or state of being, like Sainthood, Parenthood, or Knighthood?
In Neighborhood, artist Greg Caldwell ponders the connotation of the term. His paintings portray people as neighbors, being neighborly, or being happy and at peace. The theme also encompasses kindness, friendship and relationships of safety, security, comfort, and trust among neighbors. As a counterpoint to Shady Acres, Caldwell conveys a warm ideal of suburbia, where people say “hello,” and wave, give apples as gifts to each other, or are simply comfortable walking around with a cup of water in their hand. The people use simple movements and gestures, while other symbols of houses, airplanes, the sun, stars and cars can be readily understood by children and adults alike.
