When: Friday, July 8, 7PM – 9PM
Where: Julie's Coffee and Tea Garden: 1223 Park St, Alameda, California 94501
Join Julie's Coffee and Tea Garden for the second showing of Gregory Moore's work in Reclaimed Surfaces. Discover the complexity and richness of life through Moore's paintings of California scenery on the surfaces of reclaimed and found objects. Meet the artist and enjoy good drinks and company on the outdoor deck of the café.
Gregory Moore has been featured in Citiscapes Magazine, NPR, and more. His art has been displayed from Arkansas to Washington. He starts a piece off by collecting manmade debris, such as concrete or metal that would otherwise have been discarded. When he paints, he makes sure to not "obscure the original texture and color." His paintings often depict the flora and fauna of California, such as poppies, thistles, and sea life.
He hopes that, by outlining the processes undergone by the scraps that he paints on, he can raise awareness of humanity's "collective shadow" by bringing attention to elements that would have otherwise been ignored.
