On exhibit in the Madeleine Gutman Gallery
Urban ‘n’ Abstract
by Omar Watson
The Madeleine Gutman Gallery/Greenburgh Town Hall will feature “Urban & Abstract,” a mixed media exhibit by 22 year old, self-taught artist Omar Watson until March 22nd, 2017. The exhibit is Watson’s first, solo exhibit.
“I’ve been sketching ideas since I began separating the creme from Oreos, in grade school,” says Watson. “I cooked up sketches as a pass-time, drawing Animes and selling them for easy bucks – and, for fun. My inspirations were the famous Akira Toriyama (DBZ), Tristan Eaton, Morgan Davidson, and Masashi Kishimoto (Naruto). After discovering my talent for graphic designing, I took my art-life to the locals of Georgia where I bonded with many friendly, graphic designers/tattoo artists/artists/music-artists/skateboarders who made up the group "Kick Up". After the group disbanded, I moved to the Bronx, picked up my tools again, and developed my current Urban 'n' Abstract style.”
The Madeleine Gutman Gallery/Greenburgh Town Hall is located at 177 Hillside Avenue in Greenburgh, NY. The building is handicapped accessible, and open to the public from 8:30 am until 5 pm Mondays – Fridays, as well as during all public meetings. The Gallery will also be open on Saturday, March 18th, 2017 from 10 am until 1 p.m. For more information, visit www.greenburghartsandculture.org or email Greenburgh’s Director of Arts and Culture Sarah Bracey White at 914-682-1574.
