Greg’s River Flows Through It (2001) has been selected as the 2009 branding piece of King Blooms, King Township’s organizing committee of the national Communities in Bloom organization.
King Weekly published an interview with Greg on his inspiration for River Flows Through It, used as the King Blooms Banner 2009.
The image below is a sample banner for this year’s organization – it will hang on light standards in all major towns across King Township to promote awareness of this campaign from May through October.
On the request of the King Blooms Committee, Arts Society King (ASK) selects one piece of art each year from a King Township artist, preferably from a medium not featured previously. This will be the fourth year ASK has been, well, “asked” to perform this duty.
ASK’s Board was impressed by the work’s metaphors of the history of our rural area (by the gothic window shape); the natural colours utilized to convey a sense of our community’s passion for nature and preservation; and the flowing clear bands of glass signifying the interrelationships, power and beauty between them.
Greg is delighted to have this work featured so predominantly within King for the majority of 2009.
