Betty Cuningham Gallery is pleased to open Road Trip, an exhibition of new paintings by Greg Drasler.

About

Included in the exhibition is Stratocaster Suite, a six panel painting, stretching 70 x 400 inches. This major work echoes the vastness of the American landscape, punctuated by familiar landmarks. Also included are nine paintings, collectively named “Piling up the Miles”. Each measures approximately 11 x 90 inches. These long horizontal works trace Drasler’s lengthy drive across the Midwest, with its boundless vista dotted by places where one stops for necessities– service station, motel, drive-in cinema, diner or bank. 

Born in Waukegan, IL, Greg Drasler received a BFA and MFA from the University of Illinois at Champaign/Urbana.  He has exhibited regularly in the US since the mid 80's. Widely collected privately,  Drasler’s work can be seen in the collections of Dow Jones, Inc., New York; Krannert Art Museum, Champaign, IL; University of Illinois, Champaign/Urbana, IL; New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York; The Fisher Landau Center for Art, Long Island City, New York.
