Harrison Council for the Arts presents “Contemporary Documentary Portraits” by Greta Corens at the Harrison Public Library, Halperin Building, 2 Bruce Avenue, Harrison, on view May 6 to June 1; meet the artist May 12 from 2 to 4pm.
In Greta Corens’ portrait paintings, figurative and contemporary meet. Her classically trained drawing skill expresses mastery in a design-cultivated, graphic, and sophisticated sense of style and color in a range of traditional and digital mediums. Corens draws spirit and soul in expressive, elegant and confident strokes. She is drawn to study faces and personality translating in endearing or dramatic imagery in a feminine realistic figurative style. Corens takes pride in perfect resemblance of the model in her portraiture art.
A former fashion designer in New York City, Corens has taught the principles of design in Westchester, NY institutes. After an MFA in Architecture, Art and Design from the prestigious St. Lucas Institute of Architecture in Brussels, she studied Art at the Antwerp Royal Art Academy in Belgium. As President of the Reilly League of Artists, NY she held master classes.
The exhibit may be viewed Mondays and Wednesdays 9:30am to 9:00pm; Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays 9:30am to 5:30pm and Sundays 1:00 to 5:00pm. For information call the Library at 914-835-0324 or see harrisonpl.org.
