Artist in Residence Program

Greg Lecker paints landscapes en plein air and in the studio.  Having applied the medium of light as an architectural lighting designer for thirty years, Greg captures the changing atmosphere of man-made & natural settings in his art filled with color, motion, and emotion.  Greg communicates his experiences in “real-time” with passersby and shares oil paintings – sometimes still wet – with gallery visitors and collectors.

His work has been recognized at numerous plein air painting festivals.  You can see Greg’s work at Gallery Immaginé,  #183 Northrup King Building and often in the University of Minnesota Arboretum magazine and nature notes blog for which he writes, photographs and illustrates.  He has written and Illustrated a 10-year series of nature themed columns for the newspaper of the Bryn Mawr Neighborhood of Minneapolis where he lives.

Greg looks forward to sharing his love of nature and art with Banfill-Locke visitors and students, and especially residents and workers of Fridley and the northern metropolitan Twin Cities.

Greg began his residency in March of 2017 and it will continue through August 2018. His residency will finish with an exhibit of his work created while at BLCA. The exhibit is scheduled for July 28 to August 25, 2018.
