Great Barrington, MA – Art On Main is pleased to exhibit the recent watercolor paintings of Deborah Hanson Greene at the office of Barnbrook Realty on Main Street in Great Barrington.  The spacious walls will showcase Berkshire landscapes and still-lifes which are matted, framed and under glass.  A reception for the artist will take place on Saturday, November 16, from 5 to 7 pm.  All are welcome to attend.

Greene, a Lenox native who returned to the Berkshires from the Washington-Baltimore area after a long hiatus, paints in-between her full-time development job with the Norman Rockwell Museum.  Her work has been accepted into juried exhibits in Annapolis, MD and Alexandria, VA and was represented by several galleries in the that area.  In 2009, The Marketplace Café in Sheffield hosted a solo show of her paintings.

A graduate of Vassar College, majoring in anthropology, Greene worked most of her life in the Midwest and Washington – Baltimore corridor.  She also spent a transformative nine months camping across Africa, and two months in Nepal, trekking and camping in Everest National Park.

Despite these world adventures or perhaps because of these experiences, Greene’s paintings reflect her intimate relationship with the local landscape and the everyday objects of her home and personal collections.  Appreciating the north light and familiar landscapes that inspired her to paint as a child, she returned to her childhood roots in the Berkshires where she shares her Victorian home with her boyfriend and two cats.
