Join us for a talk titled, Power of Paint and Art in Architecture, given by Jeff Greene.
We have always been consumers of visual information and with increasing rapidity we are being bombarded with visual stimulation. But what do we really see? What do we remember? What is important? It is through the permanence of paint that what we see can be retained. Jeff Greene, President of EverGreene Architectural Arts, will discuss the evolution of paint and pigment and its influence on our perception of the surrounding world. From Paleolithic cave paintings to Contemporary street art, Greene maps out how the implementation of paint affects our built environment and ourselves.
Over the last three decades, Jeff Greene, President and founder of EverGreene, has led large-scale interior conservation, restoration, and new design work for public and sacred spaces in every historic architectural style from coast to coast. His formal education was at the Art Institute of Chicago, and he received a Fresco Scholarship to the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture. His continuing education has included a broad range of experiences and training opportunities all over the world. Throughout his career, he has revived artistic and decorative techniques by learning from aging masters in the U.S. and abroad, studying old publications and experimenting tirelessly.
Mr. Greene is considered one of the country’s foremost experts in both traditional and innovative techniques for murals, ornamental plaster, and decorative finishes. He and his staff are frequently engaged as consultants in the planning stages of restoration and public art projects. He serves extensively on art and preservation boards, with current and past posts that include President of the National Society of Mural Painters, Board Member of the League of Historic American Theaters, and Board Member of the Association for Preservation Technology.
Locally, St. Luke’s Church in Cambridge was restored by EverGreene.
