Interest in gouache has been on the rise and as a result we have featured it more prominently in our class offerings this year. We’re pleased to have Greg Graham, artist and longtime Wet Paint employee take us on a tour of his recent gouache paintings, discuss why he is a fan of gouache paint and how he uses it, and take your questions about this versatile medium.
Greg Graham grew up in Watervliet, New York and moved to Saint Paul in 1992. He has worked at Wet Paint since 1993 where he serves as Floor Manager.
He received his BA and MA from the State University of New York at Albany and his MFA in printmaking from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Graham has exhibited work in over 20 states and been the recipient of numerous awards, including grants from the Jerome Foundation and the Minnesota State Arts Board. He is represented by Groveland Gallery in Minneapolis.
I began working in gouache in 2017. I was drawn to gouache’s velvety sheen as well as an opportunity to work on paper again, something that had attracted me to printmaking in my student days.
I will show recent paintings, discuss influences and motivations, and review the materials that I favor in my current painting practice.
Please wear masks during in-person classes at Wet Paint. If you are having any COVID or cold-like symptoms even if you have been vaccinated, please do not come to the class. Thanks!
