Join us at Gallery 1448 at the opening reception / garden party for Tasting Spring, an exhibition of works by Greg Fletcher and Leslie Schwing. Both artists have been creating artwork professionally for over 40 years. For the past 30 years, they have been sharing a studio and an art life at Artists Housing Inc., in Baltimore. Together they have developed and maintained the impressive gardens on the grounds of Artists Housing.

Raised in East Baltimore, Greg Fletcher is known for capturing the visual history of his changing world. He also produces more abstract work, vibrant with color and syncopated rhythm. Fletcher was initially self-taught and encouraged by his older brother, an artist.  His mentors include John Sauersand Ralph McGuire. Fletcher’s  work has been widely exhibited and is part of the permanent collection of the Baltimore Museum of Art.

Leslie Schwing grew up in Western Pennsylvania. As a child she received artistic training from her mother, an artist. She went on to study at Carnegie Mellon University and completed her graduate degree at George Washington University, where she studied under Constance Costigan. Schwing then relocated to the Dominican Republic for seven years, eventually ending up in Baltimore. Her work is widely collected.

Fletcher and Schwing often paint from life, then continue those works in-studio. Both artists range in subject and style from abstract to figurative to land- and cityscape, echoing the tempos and patterns of their cultural origins and experiences as well as their influence on each other.
