“Landscapes of the Hudson Valley” 

 

June 7 - July 2, 2007       

                               

Originally from California, F. E. Green moved to New York City in 1975 and began a career as a stone lithographer.  As a stone printer he worked with many artists, including Norman Rockwell.  In 1984 Green moved to Greene County to paint landscapes.  Green states that he was drawn  to the Hudson River Valley to paint because of its “type” of light, its history of landscape painting and the ever-changing atmosphere experienced when painting on-site.  His paintings reflect place and have a romantic quality that is meditative.  They are observations of nature and record the shifting and variable atmospheric conditions found in this region and above all, express his relationship with and love of the Hudson Valley.

 

After receiving his B. A. degree in painting from San Diego State University in 1970, Temple University, Tyler School of Art, awarded Green a fellowship in printmaking in Rome, Italy.  The following year Green graduated with an M. F. A. in printmaking from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  Upon finishing his education, Green accepted the position of Department Head of Printmaking at the Instituto Allende in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.  

 

Green has taught on-site painting courses at Columbia Greene Community College and worked with the Friends of Olana for more than 10 years teaching on-site painting.  In 1999 and 2000 he led painting workshops at Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.  Green has also taught Vocational Commercial Arts at Greene County Correctional Facility for more than twenty years.

 

Green’s paintings have been exhibited widely on the east coast and are in many public and private collections.  He has been chronicled in American Artist Magazine and appears in both Who’s Who in America as well as Who’s Who in the World.
