The museum is currently displaying Greg's iconic Saratgoa series through August. Greg will discuss his work at a reception on August 14th at the museum.
Greg Montgomery received his formal art training at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, where he studied painting and lithography, and at the College of St. Rose in Albany, New York where he studied seriography. Recently, Greg has taken watercolor master classes in Europe with the Australian watercolorist David K. Taylor.
His clean colors, dynamic form, and unusual use of white space make his work unparalleled in the field of equestrian, sporting, and poster art. Greg's series of posters for the Travers Stakes race in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. is the longest running series by a single artist for a single event in racing history.
Over the years, Greg's bold and striking images of the racing scene have steadily increased in popularity. Today, his posters and prints hang in public and private collections worldwide and in the permanent collection of the Library of Congress.
