July 18 – August 19, 2016
Reception: Thursday, July 21, 6 – 8pm
Painter Jeremy Long, who lives and works in Dayton, will exhibit a collection of oil paintings in an exhibition entitled New Paintings. Long’s highly detailed environments, to which he refers as “spatial worlds,” he says, “can also be thought of as advocating thoughtfulness over excitement, or poetic meaning over novelty.” Of the objective of painting, Long states, “The goal as I see it is to, on one hand, create an ordered, harmonious vision and, on the other hand, to understand that everything seen is relative.”
Long earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from American University in Washington, D.C. He currently serves as Associate Professor of Art and Art History, also at Wright State University.
