"For me, painting is an opportunity to learn what is meaningful. Each picture is a visual separation of the highly significant from the less significant. Painting is really a window into the essential.”
An award-winning painter, GREGG KREUTZ is also a playwright and the author of Problem Solving for Oil Painters (now in it’s 29th year of publication) and Oil Painting Essentials (2016).
Gregg earned his bachelors degree at N.Y.U. He continued his training and earned a merit scholarship at the Art Student’s League of New York, where he studied with Frank Mason, Robert Beverly Hale and, most influentially, David A. Leffel. After winning Best in Show at the Washington Square Outdoor Show, Gregg found representation in galleries and devoted himself full time to painting.
Gregg's awards include the Frank C. Wright Award, the Hudson Valley Art Association Award, the Medal of Merit (first prize in oils), Knickerbocker Artists; the Council of American Artists Awards, Salmagundi Club; the Grumbacher Award, Knickerbocker Artists; and the National Portrait Society of America Merit Award.
