Gregory Crane is an artist and educator. His current show “Gregory Crane: Watercolors and Works on Paper” exhibits paintings, drawings, and prints from his long and distinguished career. Crane is captivated by both manmade and natural constructions. A master of classical visual arts techniques—India Ink, conte crayon, charcoal, watercolor and traditional printing—Crane sources inspiration from the outdoor landscape and colors found in nature.

His current exhibit features smaller bodies of work on paper that have never before been shown, outlining his artistic process. For Crane “drawing is the heart and soul, the anatomy of what might become a painting.” “Gregory Crane: Watercolors and Works on Paper” will be shown through August 21 at Cross Contemporary Art in Saugerties.
