Instructor and Alumnus Greg Orfanos Exhibit

January 4, 2012

Illustration Instructor and alumnus Greg Orfanos ’01 has a show entitled ep.i.sod.ic at the Charter Oak Cultural Center in Hartford, CT this month. There will be an opening reception Thursday, Jan. 5 at 5:30 pm and the exhibit runs through Friday, Jan. 27.

Greg is a mixed media artist that works primarily with acrylic paint and collage. Making pictures that tell stories has always been a running theme in Greg’s work. Though a narrative is always prominent in his paintings, it is often portrayed in a surreal and allegorical way. His images are a composite of his daily routine, forgotten memories, random thoughts and haunting dreams. Although Greg takes his education, art making and teaching very seriously, he does feel there is plenty of room for humor. His work is often embedded with a fascination of the bizarre, a bit of sarcasm and a tongue-in-cheek sensibility.
