Greg Dow

I was born in Regina, Saskatchewan and have lived from coast to coast in Canada, and in my youth in Colorado and Europe.

I studied art and graphic design at York University, Cambrian College, and St. Lawrence College although none of those environments engaged my interests more than following my own path. The cultural insights gained through earning a degree in anthropology combined with my own study of art history are important factors in his work.

During five decades as a working artist, I have exhibited and held one-man shows in many galleries in Canada and abroad. I am currently represented in well-known galleries in Halifax, Nova Scotia (Zwicker’s), Ottawa, Ontario (Wallack’s), Montreal, Quebec (Shayne Gallery) and New Brunswick (For Forest Gallery). I have also shown in galleries in Toronto, Ontario (e.g. Hollander York, Kinsman Robinson) and my art can be found in many private and corporate collections such as Queen’s University, the City of Ottawa, and Sir Sanford Fleming College.

My current work is in acrylic. I am as interested in solving technical challenges as in finding challenging subjects. The new paintings are not titled in order to invite the viewer to engage more directly with the images and discover their own meaning. I am an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and currently live and work in Sooke, British Columbia.
