free image presentation and talk by Greta Gretzinger
Monday August 3, 6-7
at the Teton Arts Center, 110 Rodeo Road by the Driggs airport and Warbird's restaurant
Greta Gretzinger’s hilarious artworks are familiar sights around the Teton region. Almost everyone has seen one of her painted cars on the road and she is currently working on the outside wall of the Victor Emporium. Join us as she gives us a “silly history of art” lesson, (referring to the fact that she references many famous works of art in her subjects) and talks about her popular public works as well as other projects she does as an illustrator employing local characters, jokes and situations. "I particularly like to add something that is a twist on traditional themes or subjects."she says.
Greta's murals can be seen in Jackson at the New York City Sub Shop, The Merry Piglets, The Rocky Mountain Oyster, Pearl Street Bagels and the biggest one, in the alley beside the Sundance Inn. Other clients include Dr. Menolocino and ,the CAT scan and MRI rooms in St. John's Hospital. She has worked with the Jackson High School Drama department designing sets and painting with students. With the Jackson Middle School, she designed and worked with students on several history mural projects.
She has illustrated two children's books "How the Elephants Saved Christmas" and“ The Ugly Mooseling”, both written by Linda L. Olson.
