Chicago Neo-Impressionist Painter Gregory A. Page To Showcase Art At Francesca’s Forno December 7
Renowned Italian Cuisine Restaurant, Francesca’s Forno to host art exhibit featuring Chicago’s own Neo-Impressionist Painter Gregory A. Page
Over the course of the last year Page has showcased his work at Francesca’s for art enthusiasts several times, and has received a progressively positive response each exhibit.
He is adamant about sharing his art on an international level and his unique take on Neo-Impressionist painting has caught the attention of Dallas Cowboys CFO Shy Anderson, who purchased one of Page’s paintings last year, as well as several other top executives around the world.
“I am honored that Francesca’s Forno has invited me back again,” said Page. “Having the opportunity to display my work, especially for hometown fans, is what art is about to me; exhibiting is not only a fun get together but exposes a greater number of people to the beauty of contemporary oil paintings.”
A life-long student of art, Page began full-time painting in 2004, and has quickly emerged onto the art scene, completing over 70 original paintings highlighting his versatility as a painter.
"Art is more important when it influences others; the more people the artist reaches, the better,” said Page. “When people see a painting and think a pleasant thought, or are inspired by beautiful artwork, a wave of positive vibes can move through a group of people. I enjoy creating a bit more pleasure or beauty in people’s lives.”
Just in time for the holiday season, Page hopes that his return to Francesca’s Forno will inspire people to show their support to the struggling art community.
“The gift of art makes an office or home feel more comfortable and warmer,” said Page. “It is a gift that will last for years, and will remind the person receiving the gift of you or of a special place or event. Art enthusiasts can order directly from our secure site, and all paintings are delivered ready to be hung on the wall with a hanging wire. Cards start at $5 and prints can be framed or unframed. Also, Giclee prints are printed on canvas and look like a real painting for a fraction of the cost of a real painting. This holiday season think outside the box and surprise a loved one with a unique piece of art that will touch their hearts.”
The art exhibition will be held next Friday, December 7 at Francesca’s Forno from 7 to 9 p.m. The restaurant is located at 1576 North Milwaukee Avenue • Chicago, IL.
