The work of Lawrence Gregorek ’11 is part of an exhibit taking place in storefronts in Beacon, N.Y. “Windows on Main Street,” which runs through September 8, is a collaborative effort of businesses and artists in Beacon. According to the exhibit’s website, it engages “residents and visitors alike through a public display of art along Beacon’s historic Main Street. The exhibit explores how art can provide cultural and social understanding, be a catalyst for economic improvement in communities, and strengthen the relationship between residents and artists.”
Gregorek’s work is installed at Antalek & Moore, 340 Main Street. His artist’s biography on the Windows on Main Street site notes “He creates abstracts, landscapes, portraits and figures using acrylics, oils, inks and pastels, while adhering to the saying : ‘A painting is a poem without words.'”
