Greg Dow is a Canadian artist, born in the prairie province of Saskatchewan. He has lived from coast to coast in Canada, parts of the US and Europe. Greg’s life experiences, both as a child often moving with family and through his travels as an adult, gave him a broad perspective on life and art which is apparent in his work.
During decades as an exhibiting painter, Greg has held many one-man shows, including exhibitions in F.D. Gallery in Kingston, Ontario, Nash Gallery in London, Ontario, Wallack Galleries in Ottawa, Shayne Gallery in Montreal, Quebec, Hollander York Gallery in Toronto, Ontario and Crisson & Hind Gallery in Hamilton, Bermuda. Greg’s work can be found in many private and corporate collections such as Queen’s University, the City of Ottawa and Sir Sanford Fleming College.
Greg commits himself full time to his art. In spite of a strong pull toward abstract work he maintains a representative approach because he believes humans respond to the abstract and aesthetic experience through familiar imagery expressed in a special way. He now paints what speaks to him at the level of the specific subject but also, more importantly to him, at the level of the questions and challenges intrinsic to art.
