Exhibition and Event:GREGORY GLYNN : Sculpture and Drawing
Exhibition Dates: October 5 Ė October 28, 2007
Opening Reception: First Friday, October 5, 6-8 p.m.


The Island Gallery presents a new collection of Bainbridge Island artist Gregory Glynnís wood sculpture and drawing.

Born in Lowell, Massachusetts, Gregory moved to Seattle to study sculpture at the University of Washington, earning a BFA in 2000. Salvaging downed trees and material found in nature, his sculptures are connotative although primarily abstract. His working drawings, mixed media on paper, add insight to the sculptural process. Gregory has exhibited throughout the Northwest in sculpture parks and public settings. He is the recipient of the Bainbridge Island Arts & Humanities Councilís 2007 Amy Award, and most recently received a GAP grant from Artist Trust in Seattle to create large scale sculpture from trees. In mid-October Gregoryís work will also appear in a showcase of local artists at the International Sculpture Conference taking place in Seattle.

"My work is not inspired as much by nature itself, but rather the momentous and often unperceivable transformations in nature. I seek to evoke a sense of a world in flux and reveal a potency that dwells in living forms. It is through the process of creating my work and interacting with these forces that I find compelling relationships between the materials that I explore and phenomena of the natural world."

Mr. Glynn is available for interviews. Please contact the gallery at 206-780-9500 or ssn@theislandgallery.net.
